The New Zealand Defence Force awards the corporal rank to soldiers or airman after 6 or 7 years of service. There is substantial responsibility on the part of a corporal in the New Zealand Army and Royal New Zealand Air Force. They usually command a small team and work closely with their Sergeants. A pay increase is also given.
Like their British and Australian counterparts, they wear two chevrons to distinguish their rank.
