Watch Manager

Mar 2020

Watch Manager

Potts Point NSW, Australia
More than 12 years in the role, current employee

Always changing. In Navy, a posting only lasts 2 to 3 years before you move on to something quite different. Even after 30 years, I'm still being posted into roles that I've never done before. Therein lies the value of the excellent baseline training you receive throughout your career.

The good things

Mateship, obviously, but we're talking about a military occupation here.
Continue reading

The challenges

Standard military lifestyle. You'd better be able to keep your kit clean, ironed and ready to go, for example. Not to mention being appropriately subordinate.
