As an Electronics Engineer Submariner, you'll serve as one of the Navy's electrical and combat systems experts. You'll lead a team to maintain advanced combat, self-defence, sensor, communications and intelligence systems onboard submarines. This really isn't an ordinary engineering role.
As the engineering authority onboard, you'll get a lot of responsibility early in your career. You're there to make sure the submarine's systems are available for the mission and work effectively and safely. To help achieve this task, you'll work closely with other military units, Defence industries, and Government agencies. The importance of your role can't be overstated.
Teamwork is an important part of the role. You'll work in a close-knit team that really rely on each other. There are also many opportunities for career growth and overseas travel; all while playing a vital role in protecting Australia.
If you're looking for a challenging, technically-minded job where you can work with complex platforms, then a role as an Electronics Engineer Submariner could be for you.
Some of your core duties include, but aren't limited to:
Life as an Electronics Engineer Submariner is constantly changing, with new challenges regularly emerging as the Navy introduces new submarines, technology and systems. To meet these challenges, you'll complete a variety of internal courses and will have the opportunity for postgrad training at different universities throughout your career.
In addition to your core duties, you'll also take on the role of a Divisional Officer. This means taking on leadership, management, and mentoring tasks; providing career advice to up to 50 junior and senior sailors and junior officers.
There are also a wide variety of shore based positions for periods when you are not posted to a ship including operational planning, project management, career management and general managerial engineering roles.
