If you’re stepping out into the world, there is much to be gained from being trained as an officer in the New Zealand Defence Force. If you are ambitious and see yourself as a leader of others, the opportunities we offer can help set you up for life.
From early in your career you’ll be in charge of managing other people and resources. You’ll be entrusted with making major decisions. Few other industries provide you with experience like that so early in life.
You won’t need to spend years waiting to become an officer. If you have what it takes, you can begin officer training from the get go. That’s the officer advantage.
