Defence has been closely monitoring Government advice and State responses to limit the spread of COVID-19 within Australian communities. As the situation evolves, it is important that we continually plan, adapt and adjust to these changing and challenging circumstances. Noting States have implemented border and travel restrictions directives, the in-person assessment centres planned for later this year have been shifted to an online delivery. The online delivery standardises assessment centres for all candidates and allows individuals to complete the assessment centre from their home. The health and safety of Defence employees and our applicants is our priority. We thank you for your patience and understanding. Invitations to assessment centres will be released progressively.
Assessment centres for recruitment of graduates to the following streams will be held on the dates listed below.
If you are invited to attend an Assessment Centre, you will be requested to undertake an online written task. Dates of the online written task are to be confirmed.
