Navy is looking for people with specific, valuable skills to fill important positions

Have you left the Navy, but have been thinking about all the benefits you have been missing out on?

If so, contact the Rejoin Case Management Team (RCMT) at

The RCMT provides fast-tracking and individualised case management to Reservists with critical skills and experience.

Or, do you know someone who has left the Navy but is missing the lifestyle and camaraderie and is thinking about coming back?

If so, you can help us by letting your mates know where they can go for information and advice.

We welcome enquiries from any ex-permanent Navy members who are currently in the Reserves.


We are most interested in the following categories:

  • Cryptologic Systems (CTS), Cryptologic Linguist (CTL), Electronic Warfare (EW), Marine Technician (MT), Naval Police Coxswain (NPC)
  • Marine Technician Submariner (MTSM), Acoustic Warfare Analyst Submariner (AWASM)

There are many reasons why someone should think about re-enlistment in the Navy. Here are just a few:

  • Job security
  • Camaraderie/mateship
  • Attractive incentives such as:

•  free medical/dental,
•  subsidised housing,
•  access to subsidised home loans,
•  lifestyle,
•  travel.


ADF Total Workforce Model

On 1 July 2016, Navy, Army and Air Force will begin the transition to implementation of the ADF Total Workforce Model (TWM).

The ADF TWM features a new structure of Service Categories (SERCATs) and Service Options (SERVOPs) in which people serve. The model strengthens the opportunities for longer-term ADF careers by providing flexible ways to serve, that best meet the needs of both Defence and the member.

The largest ship ever built for the Royal Australian Navy, Landing Helicopter Dock NUSHIP Canberra, entered Sydney Harbour for the first time during the contractor sea trials and testing program.
