During your time as a Submariner you’ll get to socialise and keep fit, play a variety of sports and explore the places you visit when at sea. You'll have a great work/life balance and get to work with your mates every day.
For most Submariners, a typical day is broken up into four six-hour 'watches' or work shifts. During your hours on-watch, you'll operate equipment and perform your assigned tasks – but you'll also find yourself multitasking, which will make your work even more interesting. This means that in addition to your specific job, you will have a number of other roles to cover – such as steering the boat and applying first aid – adding variety to your time at sea.
When not on watch you can kick back with a book, movie or video game, catch up with your shipmates or exercise. Onboard fitness equipment generally includes an exercise bike, rowing machine, cross trainer and weights, along with boxing gloves, pads and punch bags.
On deployments or exercises you'll enjoy time ashore in places such as Sydney, Malaysia, Hawaii and even further afield. When alongside you’ll generally work an eight-hour day (which also applies to when you are at home on Garden Island) so you'll have plenty of time off to explore new places and immerse yourself in different cultures.
