Our shared workforce

Defence People serve - or have served - New Zealand.  Our country's military capability both at home and overseas depends on their skills to assist in times of need. However, our people need to be trained to respond. As their civilian employer, your support is vital to help them to attend training exercises and courses. 


We understand that the commercial environment is tough, and that different situations need different solutions. That’s why we encourage Defence People to negotiate an acceptable solution with you, their employer.


We will equip your Defence Person with valuable skills and experiences which can be utilised in your organisation. We want our relationship with you to be mutually beneficial, as we work together to support our shared workforce.
