Exercise Bosslift

Exercise Bosslift enables employers to observe their employees working as a Reserve Force member on operation. Bosslift is also a chance for the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) to extend thanks to the employers of Reserves.

Employers will witness what the NZDF does on exercises and operations, such as in the Solomon Islands and Timor-Leste, and gain valuable insights into the benefits that Reserve Force training brings back to your organisation.
