Defence Careers Southern will be conducting a female only Defence Careers Experience (DCE) at Burnham Military Camp in the second week of the July school holidays (16 – 20 July 2018). The DCE is open to female secondary school students in Years 12 and 13 from across the South Island who have an interest in a career with the New Zealand Army.
As with previous events, the 5 day residential experience will be conducted on a Military base with transport, accommodation and food provided. We are looking for motivated young women with a sense of adventure who would like to explore the many opportunities to give their passions a purpose within the New Zealand Defence Force. The DCE will provide a forum to explore career opportunities, develop team and leadership skills, enhance personal confidence, resilience and experience some aspects of life in the NZ Army. Students will get the chance to interact with a range of female service personnel and hear their stories and experiences which we hope will empower them in their choice of a rewarding military career.
For students to apply they need to complete the online form before June 10. This link will also be available at the Female Defence Careers Experience event on our Facebook page event.
