You will work to ensure that New Zealanders can protect themselves and others from harm, from a wide variety of threats.
What we need

  • Successful relationship building skills between stakeholders, partners and customers. 

A bachelor's level qualification in security, international affairs or related experience is essential to be considered for this role.
Who we are
The Directorate of Defence Security (DDS) comprises seven functional business units: counter- intelligence, security compliance and assurance (including Defence Industry), security risk and awareness, security vetting and screening, security policy and the security guard force.  Each functional unit contributes a vital role to strengthen the NZDF's ability to secure its information, people, assets and reputation. 
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.
