We advertise jobs through:
Trade-based positions are advertised in metropolitan and regional newspapers in the trades section. You can also find out about vacancies by contacting your local regional office and asking for the HR Manager.
Applying for a vacancy
You need to submit a written application for each vacancy you are interested in. However, depending on the particular position, the information you are required to submit may vary.
With the exception of trade positions, most other advertised vacancies have a position description, and details on what you need to include in your written application will be explained in the position description.
Generally, your written application should include the following information:
- an application for advertised vacancy coversheet providing basic personal details to the selection panel
- a current resume summarising your employment history
- names and contact details of 2 referees who are familiar with your work and achievements (preferably current or previous supervisors)
- a copy of your academic qualifications, licences or certificates where applicable.
You may also have to submit additional information which may include writing statements that address the selection criteria, or writing responses to a number of specific questions that are relevant to the position.
The selection process
Appointments are based on merit and selection panels may use a variety of tools to determine the best person for a position.
If you are shortlisted, you will be interviewed by a selection panel.
The interview could include a number of questions relevant to the position, an aptitude or ability test, or a work sample or a practical exercise that gives you the opportunity to demonstrate how you would perform an actual on-the-job task.
If you have any special requirements to be able to attend an interview (for example, building access or communication help), please let us know at the time your interview appointment is made so that we can make suitable arrangements.
After the selection process, the selection panel may contact your nominated referees to verify the information that you have provided before making a final recommendation.
No referee will be contacted without your prior consent.
Once a decision has been approved, both the successful and unsuccessful applicants are advised in writing as soon as possible.
