Get Involved With Us

DESC offers many engagement opportunities for employers and other stakeholders. These include visits to a range of exciting activities where you get to share the experiences of our Defence People first hand.  Operation Mōhiohio provides you with the opportunity to observe and even get involved in the action.

Organisations also have the opportunity to join our valued employers by signing a Statement of Support. This provides an avenue for an employer, or educator, to declare their support for Defence People and acknowledge the benefits they bring to the New Zealand workforce.

Through our awards program, we formally recognise employers who have shown outstanding support to Defence People at an individual, regional, and national level. Defence People can nominate their employer or educator for these awards.
