People who employ Reserves are vital to the effectiveness of New Zealand's Reserve Forces. Without their support, employees can’t get time off for military training. Both the Territorial Forces Employer Support Council, and the New Zealand Defence Force provide our valued supporters with various channels of support.
The Territorial Forces Employer Support Council (TFESC) is a national organisation of senior private, public and non-profit sector representatives established by the Minister of Defence.
In addition to the TFESC, there are seven Regional Employer Support Committees (RESCs) that report to the TFESC.
- Auckland and Northland
- Bay of Plenty
- Manawatu and Kapiti Coast
- Wellington and Hawke's Bay
- Canterbury and Upper South Island
- Otago and Southland
