Specialisation Intelligence, IT and Communications
Location Palmerston North Christchurch
Starting Trade Training $51,265
About the role
When the Army deploys, it needs to communicate. As an IT Specialist, your role is to ensure that the right information is passed to the right unit at the right time.
To achieve this, you will find yourself establishing voice or data radio networks, engineering satellite terminals, or maintaining secure computer networks with a range of services and applications.
Unlike a civilian IT role, you will not be restricted to working in an office. You may find yourself providing IT support to our soldiers based out of a vehicle, an Army tent, or acquisitioned building on exercise.
In addition to enhancing your technical skills, your day-to-day training will be varied. It will provide opportunities to enhance your weapon skills, gain experience and qualifications for driving military vehicles, first aid, physical fitness and more.
As you progress in your career, you may find yourself stepping into leadership roles by commanding others, or providing instruction and training to soldiers.
You will join the Army and complete your first year of training as an IT Specialist. After this, you will continue your training to specialise in one of five specific roles;
Radio Frequency Technician
Information Management Specialist
Information Systems Operator
Systems Engineer
Electronic Warfare Operator
Your training will include a mixture of Defence and Civilian qualifications and courses, with some roles offering funded tertiary study whilst on a salary.
Job on base
You will be a member of a Communications Access Node (CAN), responsible for providing deployable IT services to the Army.
Your day-to-day role will be varied, with each day bringing new challenges and opportunities. You and your team will ensure that your IT equipment is maintained and functional, ready to be deployed for training or operational use.
Informal and formal training will occur to keep your technical skills fresh, as well as give you the opportunity for further learning.
You will also conduct regular training to maintain your physical fitness, weapon handling, first aid and vehicle-based skillsets.
Job on deployment
The NZ Army deploys on operations within NZ and overseas with its own encrypted communication networks. IT Specialists will be deployed with their own scalable IT solutions, tailored to the size and specific requirements of the force they are supporting.
From responding to a natural disaster, training foreign militaries, or conducting security and stability operations, there are a number of missions the NZ Army will conduct.
You will find yourself establishing and maintaining computer and radio networks, ensuring our forces can exchange information with each other in the same country, as well as maintaining strategic communications links back to New Zealand.
You will provide user support to our staff, ensuring they have the tools to effectively plan and conduct their tasks in support of the mission.
This role may see you operating independently, or as a part of a small team of IT Specialists supporting the mission.
To be an effective Electric Warfare Operator you need to like the outdoors, be an effective problem solver and be able to think fast on your feet in short windows of time.
