Civilian Roles in the NZDF

Below is a list of all the civilian roles currently available with NZDF. You're welcome to apply for as many as you wish. However, to keep it fair, you must formally apply for each role individually. That means we can't accept any applications that show an expression of interest in multiple roles. Good luck!

*For those already employed within NZDF (excluding contractors), please apply via the Civilian Vacancies page on the intranet, via the HR Toolkit.

COVID-19 Update

The New Zealand Defence Force are committed to serving and assisting New Zealand through the rapidly developing situation around COVID-19. We are following Government guidelines and Ministry of Health advice to ensure the safety of our candidates and staff.

This means that there has already been, and will continue to be, an impact on all Civilian Recruitment for the foreseeable future.

Thank you for your understanding and patience, Kia Kaha
