Who we are
We're proud to represent and serve those who have fought in our country’s best interests and who make sacrifices, even today, to ensure New Zealand remains a free and safe country. There are over 31,000 New Zealand veterans, with diverse backgrounds that range in age from 19 to more than a hundred years old. Our veterans include current NZ Defence Force personnel, those who have left the Defence Force and work in civilian roles, and retired ex-service personnel.
We're focused on providing excellent personal support for veterans and their families. We also partner with the broader New Zealand Defence Force, and with other government and non-government agencies to facilitate this support.
As a proud part of the NZ Defence Force, we play our part in contributing to the defence, security and well-being of Aotearoa New Zealand.
Why you should work for Veterans' Affairs
In return for your knowledge, experience and drive, we can reward you with challenging opportunities working in a supportive, motivated and forward-thinking team based in Wellington.
