Good opportunities to make a life long career or have a good start to the working life. Plenty of sport involved and time off as well as early knock offs

Communications Officer (Former Employee) - Christchurch
It was the military so not much to disclose. It is what it is. There was a very social aspect to this and I have made life long friends no matter how many years pass, you just pick up where you left off, just a little rounder and more grey hairs.
