Officer - Specialist (Army)

Army Officer^

Officers are the leaders of the New Zealand Army. They are the managers and strategists. Their decision-making skills and problem-solving abilities enable them to plan and execute tasks in wide-ranging conditions. It is their job to earn trust and respect, and to display the strength of character to inspire their soldiers in potentially difficult situations.

After completing Officer training, you will join a corps, specialising in combat, engineering, intelligence, communications or logistics.

Field Psychologist

Psychologists in the New Zealand Army provide psychological services, advice and research to all levels of the organisation.

The work encompasses most facets of industrial/organisational psychology and as such, the Army Psychology Service offers an unparalleled opportunity for graduates to gain a broad range of experience in a professional and “user friendly” environment.
