Officer Entry

If you intend on entering into an Officer role, then you will be entering via the Officer Entry stream.

The Defence Jobs recruiting process for the Officer Entry stream contains up to three more steps then the General Entry recruiting process. The first is that for some Officer roles you will be required to undertake additional aptitude testing, which is scheduled in after your You Session (to find out if the role you are applying for requires additional testing speak to your Defence Recruiting case manager). The second step after you complete your assessment day will be to attend an Officer Selection Board. If you are applying to be a Pilot there is an additional step where you will be required to attend ASP (Pilot candidates attend OSB after this stage). The process for Pilots outlined in the Pilot Entry process.
