Join the Naval Reserves

http://defencecareers.mil.nz

The Royal New Zealand Navy Volunteer Reserve (RNZNVR) is an integral part of the Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN); ten percent of the Navy's personnel strength is Reservists.

Naval Reserve personnel train for Sea Service in support of Multi-Agency Taskings and for duties ashore in Maritime Trade Operations; in addition they provide supplementary personnel for the RNZN, both in peacetime and times of emergency. All branches have full career opportunities as ratings, and selected personnel may be offered commissions as Naval Reserve Officers.

SEA SERVICE JOBS

As a member of the sea service you can expect to be trained in Damage Control, seamanship and weapon handling. You will be constantly finding new skills as your vessel performs multi agency taskings with the customs service, fisheries or conservation.

TECHNICAL JOBS

There are opportunities to become a technical officer or rating where you would be responsible for maintaining and operating a range of systems aboard the Inshore Patrol Vessels among others.

MARITIME TRADE OPERATIONS (MTO)

The Naval Reserves are solely responsible for Maritime Trade Operations, the liaison between the Navy and the wider maritime industry, doing things like boarding ships and tracking vessel movements in our waters. They also supplement the Regular Force. Sometimes this will mean filling in for full-time sailors and officers.
