For Cadet Force Officers

As the bridge between your employer and NZCF, DESC works to ensure you succeed in both your New Zealand Cadet Force commitments and civilian career.  We want to enable you to fulfill all your obligations without conflict, and also help your employer get the most benefit out of employing a Defence person.

It is important that you work in good faith with your employer, or educator, and we've provided some tips on how to do this effectively.  We also encourage you to nominate your employer for recognition awards to thank them for ongoing or outstanding support.

If you are struggling to find balance, DESC is here to provide advice and guidance.
