Public Relations Officer

If you have a thorough understanding of the ins and outs of public relations, and you know how to build a strategy that achieves cut-through with key audiences, you’ll enjoy the variety offered in this communication role. Being quick on your feet and an expert at thinking outside the box will make you an ideal candidate for this position.

In this role, you’ll lead a team of public relations experts. Together you’ll promote the Army’s mission as well as maintain its excellent reputation for protecting Australia’s sovereignty and national interests. Your duties will include advising Army Commanders on issues management, developing communication strategies, and liaising with media.

On top of that, you’ll conduct media awareness training, write press releases and manage the production of content such as photographs, videos, social media and articles—all tasks you’re familiar with, but with an even more rewarding purpose.

Training:

With your public relations qualifications, the Defence Force will teach you all the skills you require for the military through leadership training at the Royal Military College, Duntroon in Canberra. This initial training is 42 days.

Following your initial training, as a Public Relations Officer, you will attend a range of specialist Military Public Affairs and other military courses to enhance your skills.

Salary:

In the Army you'll get paid a highly competitive salary of $96,687 per annum plus generous super from day one regardless of your age, experience or qualifications.

Location:

You’ll get to take advantage of the many opportunities to see more of Australia and the world. You could work in a specialist public affairs unit, as a staff adviser around Australia, at Australian Defence Headquarters in Canberra or deploy overseas on operations, exercises or other Defence activities.

Life in the Army:

Action, adventure, exciting career opportunities and amazing mateship—there’s so much to love about life in the Army. Whether you’re looking to pick up a new skill, get qualified with fully paid training or are up for a new challenge, you’ll find it all in the Army.

Not to mention there’s also the sense of accomplishment and pride that comes from serving your country and providing support to communities in need, both here and overseas.

This is no ordinary job—but that’s exactly what you’re looking for. Enjoy a rewarding career, opportunities to travel, excellent fitness facilities, and free medical and dental; all in a dynamic and fulfilling work environment.

For this role, you must be an Australian citizen and able to successfully obtain a security clearance.
