You'll need to have the ability to travel when required to conduct security inspections, installations or security system design or reconfiguration.   Ideally you will also be qualified on; TECOM Challenger technician course, CCTV and hold an Electrical Service Technician Certificate or equivalent, but these qualifications are not a pre-requisite as we're looking for the right person so training will be provided. 

Who we are

Every hour of every day, 365 days of the year, the New Zealand Defence Force is contributing to the defence, security and well-being of Aotearoa / New Zealand.  As a modern, professional military, it is our goal to maintain well trained, equipped and disciplined armed forces that can react to crisis at short notice.

  • Be part of an effective team with freedom and flexibility to do my job
