Rejoin Case Management Team (RCMT)

Navy is looking for highly trained and skilled individuals to fill important positions

Have you transferred to SERCAT 2, 3 or 5 (Naval Reserves (NR)) but keep thinking about all the benefits associated with fulltime SERCAT 7 service? Or, do you know someone who has transferred to the NR but is missing the lifestyle and camaraderie and is thinking about transferring back to SERCAT 7?

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

The RCMT provides individualised case management to SERCAT 2, 3 and 5 NR members with critical skills and experience who are interested in returning to SERCAT 7 fulltime service.

There are many reasons why you may be considering transferring back to SERCAT 7, but here are just a few:

  • Job security
  • Camaraderie/mateship
  • Attractive incentives such as:
  • free medical/dental for serving members and the ADF Family Health Program for dependents
  • subsidised housing,
  • access to excellent superannuation schemes,
  • access to subsidised home loans (for eligible members),
  • lifestyle,
  • travel.

We welcome enquiries from any ex-permanent Navy members who are currently classified as SERCAT 2, 3 or 5 (Naval Reserves).


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.
