It takes considerable staff effort to successfully train, exercise and conduct operations. As a result, a considerable proportion of Army’s workforce are posted into staff and command support roles each year. At The Cove, we've had many people write about their experiences in staff and command support appointments. We know you’ll be short on time in your staff appointment, so we've created a collection of articles and documents categorised by the roles they are most relevant to. We hope they assist you for the busy year ahead.

Consider writing a reflection to The Cove upon finishing your staff role, so others can learn from your experience. The Cove wishes you the best in your staff appointment.
