Our recruitment process
Applying for a role
Applying for any of our jobs is simple, however please set aside 10 to 15 minutes of your time before you start, as we like to get as much information as we can from you before making a decision on who we would like to interview. The process involves four simple steps.
- Find the position you are interested in by viewing our current job listings and select apply now.
- Address the key selection criteria, which normally comprises no more than ten questions. These questions are designed to provide us with more information about you. These questions will assist us in assessing if you have the qualities, knowledge and skills needed to do the job. It is important when addressing selection criteria that you provide succinct statements that sell your specific capabilities to meet each of the criteria. Ensure you use specific examples that demonstrate you have the knowledge, skills, personal and behavioural qualities to do the job.
- If you have a CV in a compatible format, simply upload it onto our system by following the steps. If you do not have a professionally formatted CV you can use our system to build one. Ensure your CV provides your contact details, outlines your qualifications, work experience and contains two contactable work related referees. Having a well laid out CV helps your chance of getting an interview with us.
- After the closing date of the position, we review all applications and will be in touch with you if your skills, qualifications and experience are a good fit for the role.
