Defence People

Helping you find balance

As a Defence person, you are probably aware of the challenge of balancing your military and civilian commitments. We are here to assist in supporting you in your workplace and enabling you to utilise your unique skills, and give you the freedom to attend necessary training and exercises to build on these skills.

We want you to engage in good faith with your employer or educator, and remember, you have an obligation to uphold the NZDF values of courage, comradeship, and commitment in all aspects of working life.

"Like their predecessors, the men and women of the Territorial Force of the twenty-first century choose to give up their free time to serve the nation. They are the inheritors of a proud tradition of service and deserve the respect and appreciation of all New Zealanders"
