Fighting for what’s right
We’re the Army – the fighting force of New Zealand. Highly trained, committed, loyal and passionate, we work together to protect the country, safeguard its interests and support our allies.
The Army is part of the New Zealand Defence Force – a Force for New Zealand – and works closely with the Navy and the Air Force as well as other Government and non-government agencies.
Every day is a new challenge
In the Army you'll never rest on past successes. We'll push you to constantly better yourself. But you won't have to do it alone. You'll be part of a tight-knit team – people that you'll come to trust, no matter what. Whatever your role, you'll be given the best possible training, equipment and encouragement. Everything you need, in fact, to create a successful and valued career.

The NZ Army is a purpose built team
Together we are trained and equipped with the essential skills we need to jump quickly into action whenever the time comes - from civil emergencies here at home, to peace keeping and special operations the world over. We pride ourselves on being an Army that is world class at what we do - even though we are only a small nation, we are an Army with big skills, big talent and big passion.
