Maritime Logistics Community News : Autumn 2009
naVY SuPPLY nEWSLEttER autumn 2009 23 Sailor’s Career management Page – ‘out of Branch’ This article will provide members of the Supply community with an insight into the roles and responsibilities of such positions along with how to nominate for these positions and the selection process conducted by DSCM in making a decision. Recruit School Firstly, let us have a look at being an Instructor or a Divisional Staff Officer down in ‘sunny’ CERBERUS at Recruit School. Ah, the memories of the good old days having a freshly shaved head, marching around the parade ground in my new shiny black polished boots, neatly pressed uniforms ready for morning inspections and having a laugh with new found friends at the Recreational Hut. Any member interested in personnel management and developing the basic foundations of young ‘Jack Tar’ and his or hers’ new founded career in the Royal Australian Navy will find this environment both challenging and an extremely rewarding opportunity. Prior to any interest in applying for a Recruit School Instructor or a Senior Sailor Divisional Staff Officer, all applicants must first gain approval from their respective Career Managers at both DSCM Canberra and the Local Career Management Cell. As a Permanent Navy Force member (PNF), the criteria for selection will consist of the following components: a) Individual Readiness compliance; b) Nil disciplinary incidents recorded in the past twenty four months; c) Nil Equity and Diversity incidents; and d) Twelve months seniority in rank. Note: Continuous Full Time Servicing (CFTS) members will only be offered a position if all avenues of using PNF staff are exhausted. Upon meeting the above criteria, your application must then be forwarded to DSCM Canberra accompanied by a Divisional Officers report, Commanding Officer’s recommendation and a recent full length photo in service uniform. If selected, you will enjoy the following benefits: a) Stability in the chosen location for two years; b) Further education qualifications such as a Certificate Four in Assessment and Workplace Training; and c) a ten thousand dollar Instructors bonus, per annum. Unfortunately there will be no steak knifes. Defence Force Recruiting Defence Force Recruiting is yet another highly sort after out of branch position offering members rewards and new challenges. Defence Force Recruiting Centres (DFR) provide the successful applicant with an opportunity to work in a Tri–Service environment in tandem with a professional civilian organisation. DFR conducts the process of ensuring that the right people get through the door and are then employed in one of the vast range of employment opportunities the Defence Force has to offer. BY CPo d. CaRtER dSCm CanBERRa Do you feel like a change from your mundane daily routines and duties? Then why not apply to work in an out of branch position. There are positions available at Recruit School in HMAS CERBERUS or in a Tri-Service environment within a Defence Force Recruitment Centre throughout Australia. If selected, the first couple of weeks are spent training and developing your presentation, interpersonal and interviewing skills, along with providing a potential candidate with employment opportunities based on their initial aptitude testing. Finally, the training culminates in ensuring that the potential recruit knows what to expect on their assessment day and when meeting with the Defence Interviewer. We have all been through recruiting and know what processes occur during the assessment day and at the initial enlistment ceremony. However, you may find that you could also become a part of the Career Promotional or Deployable Recruit Team. Their purpose is to promote and discuss the extensive employment roles the ADF has to offer at Career Expeditions and Career Counselling days at surrounding high schools. Similar to applying for a position at Recruit School, all interested personal must first gain approval from their representatives at DSCM Canberra and their Local Career Management Cell prior to nominating. Once approval has been given by your career managers, an email is to be forwarded to the designated point of contact by your supervisor clarifying the following details: a) The position and location you wish to volunteer for; b) Individual Readiness compliance; and c) Approval correspondence by you Career Managers. Upon your nomination being received by DSCM Regional you will be required to undertake a testing and interview assessment conducted at your nearest Defence Force Recruitment Centre. I hope I have provided you with some insight into these two out of branch employment avenues.
