GNSI’s first virtual conference

Join us for The Guild of Natural Science Illustrators’ 2020 Virtual Conference!

Dates: Aug 8 & 9th, 2020

The GNSI’s first virtual conference offers an unprecedented opportunity to share our vibrant annual conference with a global audience. Our profession has been thrust into the spotlight as we illuminate complex information about virus transmission and safe practices that may save lives. Yet science itself is being questioned or misinterpreted to influence political agendas, and our institutions – schools, universities, museums, and parks – are scrambling to adapt to the uncertainty brought on by the pandemic. Our conference will present thought leaders and practitioners wrestling with this challenging new landscape and experimenting with different ways of doing science communication so that we may all learn and grow.

Photographer – Royal Australian Air Force

Opportunity

As an Air Force Photographer, you’ll work with like-minded, visually creative people in dynamic work environments across the Australian Defence Force. In this role, you’ll enjoy:

•           an excellent salary plus generous superannuation
•           ongoing investment in your personal and career development
•           free medical and dental
•           a good work/life balance
•           world-class training
•           rewarding work, with opportunities to travel the world
•           subsidised accommodation
•           a supportive team environment
•           travel and leave entitlements
•           free access to sports and fitness facilities
•           friendships that last a lifetime

All that plus meaningful experiences and opportunities that you wouldn’t get in a civilian role.

Your role

As an Air Force Photographer, you’ll be responsible for capturing imagery and vision in support of Whole of Government objectives, military operations, exercises and activities, as well as Defence supported public events, at home and overseas.

This rewarding role offers far more variety than that of its civilian counterparts – one day you could be flying in the back of a C-17A Globemaster and the next day you could be working with Air Force puppies, or in Guam on Exercise Cope North.

Operating independently or as a member of a Military Camera Team, your work will be critical to Military Public Affairs and will directly impact Air Force’s brand and reputation.

In this role, you’ll make the most of your relevant qualification, working in unique environments and receiving further career development training to hone your skills as a photographer and make you an expert in your field.

This role offers plenty of variety, interest, camaraderie and adventure. Better still, you’ll be working in a dynamic people-focused organisation that offers a great lifestyle plus opportunities you simply won’t find anywhere else.

Sounds good? Then apply now (below).

Salary

–           Fully-paid training
–           Start salary package approx. $72,500 p.a.
–           Generous superannuation plus numerous other benefits.

Location

•           Training in Sydney
•           Then posting to bases in Canberra, Williamtown, Amberley,
Richmond or Adelaide.
•           Potential for overseas postings

Entry Requirements

If you’re interested in becoming an Air Force Photographer, you’ll be able to join through Qualified Entry. To apply, you’ll need to:

•           Be at least 17 years old
•           Be an Australian citizen
•           Have completed Year 10 with passes in English and Maths
•           Hold a Certificate IV in Photography and Photo Imaging or Certificate

portfolio of work for consideration
