How long do I have to commit to stay in the New Zealand Defence Force once I have joined up?

Just like any other job, you have to give notice when you want to leave. That notice period is three months in the Defence Force. The only time it is more than that is if you’ve completed a particularly expensive training course when we require people to commit to staying with us for a time to ensure we get some benefit from that training, but we’d always let you know about that before you started the training.
