The Roles

NZDF is embarking on a period of significant and exciting digital transformation. This presents a unique opportunity for IT professionals to join an organisation where they will be exposed to interesting technology and complex challenges.

Whether you are looking for an employer where you can feel a strong sense of belonging and clear alignment with your values, or the chance to grow professionally through training and opportunities to work on important projects – at NZDF, you will be part of an inclusive ‘family’ of people who are genuinely passionate about what they do.

The roles that we are recruiting for will primarily be located in Petone, Wellington, however a number of positions are located in Auckland at Whenuapai or Devonport, and several roles may also be located in Burnham, Linton, Ohakea and Waiouru.


NZDF is committed to helping you enjoy a varied and rewarding career. Much of this job satisfaction will come from the work you do, the people you work with, and knowing you work for an organisation that benefits all New Zealanders.

Work-life balance is not only supported, it is encouraged – achieving balance between your career and your personal life is very important. At NZDF, you will find a tight-knit community of co-workers who bring diversity of thought, perspective and experience to the workplace each day.

There are broad career pathways, where you could progress within functions across the wide span of NZDF. The ‘way we work’ at NZDF is flexible in terms of the how, especially when the focus is the ‘why’ – achieving their strategic vision.

NZDF is an inclusive organisation that is open to flexible working arrangements. They are committed to nurturing an inclusive culture, and welcome applications from people regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, age, beliefs/opinions, or family circumstances.
