Department of Internal Affairs

Public Administration and Safety

The Department of Internal Affairs employs several reservists around the country. DIA sponsored a reservist to undertake a prolonged leave of absence during the Tasman Scheme exchange with the Australian Army Reserve and has continued to be a valued employer for reservists. As well as supporting reservists it also acknowledges the benefits that part-time military service brings with it. Leadership, teamwork, and professionalism are all hallmarks of a reservist and DIA recognises the benefits such traits bring to their organisation. They continue to consistently support their defence people and have a close working relationship with NZDF.
