Our Mission 

"Transforming Military and Police Service into civilian career success"

exServices helps clients by attracting, recruiting and retaining New Zealand’s best and most talented ex Service Personnel.

After a career in the New Zealand Police, Andrew transitioned into civilian employment. exServices Recruitment has been established based on his experience of the opportunity and challenges this change can offer. 

As part of the temporary and permanent recruitment and HR services provided by Superior Personnel, we are now working with Military, Police and Fire staff to assist them with the transition into civilian employment.

Over the next three years, it is estimated that approximately 5,250 Service men and women will leave the New Zealand Defence Force and Police and transition into the civilian workforce.

ex-Service personnel have a set of traits that can provide a competitive edge because they may not be so common in a civilian workplace. While Service personnel and others recognise the tangible achievements of rank, degrees, certificates and medals – the key is the attributes that enabled Service personnel to achieve these.

exServices Recruitment provides that link to meaningful and challenging career opportunities after Service.

Restart Your Career

One of the hardest decisions you make will be to leave your mates in uniform. If you have already left and worked in civilian employment, you will know that you miss some things about your time in the Police, Military or Fire Service. We get that. Our owner and founder experienced the same thing leaving the Police after 14 years service. exServices Recruitment is all about taking your skills and service that you have built up and transferring that into civilian employment.

If you are looking for a new role, what is your next step?

  1. Make sure you get all your documents in order before you leave.
  2. Get a CV together – don’t worry if you haven’t got one. There is a free template to download at the bottom of this page.
  3. Make sure you get an accurate copy of your service record or Certificate of Service. It is a valuable recognition of your service.
  4. If you got certificates or qualifications while in the service, make sure you have copies of them and attach them to your CV. Things like First Aid, tertiary courses, specialist quals….they all count.
  5. Sort out a couple of references – people who will vouch for your skills and work ethic. Speak to them before you put their name in your CV!

Once you have finished that and are ready, send your details to exServices Recruitment. If you have any questions about the process get in touch as well.
