  • A rotating roster including four days on & four days off;
  • 25% salary loading payment;
  • Stable permanent employment.
  • We really can’t talk enough about how incredible our security officers are, or say enough about the valuable contribution they make as part of a wider security team protecting New Zealand’s interests.

    What we need

    You will be joining a supportive and professional team of dedicated security officers who between them look after multiple NZDF sites in the Auckland region, via a rotating roster (including night shifts) 24/7, 365 days a year.

  • An individual with prior security experience preferably in operational security;
  • Someone used to shift work and who has a good work ethic combined with life skills;
  • A good degree of physical fitness is required; and
  • Technology plays a big part in what we do so it’s important that you are comfortable using computers and are familiar with the Microsoft Office suite of programs.
  • Who we are

    The Directorate of Defence Security (DDS) comprises eight functional business units: counter intelligence, security compliance (including Defence Industry), security risk and assurance, security vetting and screening, security policy, security services, security education and training 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. DDS provides a sustainable and credible security organisation primarily focused on NZDF’s domestic security environment through the provision of a wide range of protective security policies, services, products and advice.

    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.
