Interested in ‘driving’ warships in the Navy?

July 2, 2021

An exciting opportunity has come up for Year 13s who are seriously interested in joining the NZ Defence Force in 2022 to attend an Experience Day at the Devonport Naval Base.

The experience is aimed at those interested in finding out about the Navy’s Warfare Officer position.  Warfare Officers ‘drive’ the warships, control the ship’s manoeuvring and are responsible for the navigation of the ship at sea. This role is also a management position where the Warfare Officer manages bridge staff and in time, their own personnel division.

They are looking for Year 13 students, who have achieved a minimum of NCEA Level 2 including 12 Level 2 English credits. Students do not need to be looking at a Warfare Officer role, but if they are interested in the position and learning more, this could be the experience for them.

See Mrs Shepheard in Careers if you are keen to attend. Places are limited and names have to be put forward for selection.
