Train to become a Cargo Operator in the Australian Army. Put your love of driving to good use, ensuring the safe delivery of essential Army equipment, weapons and supplies.
As a Cargo Operator (also known as Cargo Specialist), take on an important Army logistics role while enjoying:
• a good salary plus generous superannuation

All that plus exciting opportunities supporting Army domestic activities, including exercises and operations, with potential deployments overseas in support of Australian and coalition personnel.
This is no ordinary driving job, and the Army is no ordinary employer.
As a Cargo Operator (Cargo Specialist) you’ll be responsible for the movement of supplies that are vital to Defence Force capability, by road, rail, sea and air. You will organise deliveries, manage stock and work across all forms of transport.

If you’re a resourceful team player and love the idea of a role that combines logistics with driving challenging vehicles, this is the job for you.
Better still, in the Army you’ll be working for a dynamic national organisation that offers a great lifestyle plus opportunities and experiences you simply won’t find anywhere else.
