Our graduate recruitment process:

Stage 1: Complete the application form

Upload your resume and submit responses to the questions listed (including key selection criteria questions). You will not be required to submit a covering letter or a separate document addressing the key selection criteria.

Stage 2: Behavioural–based interview and work sample

The interview panel will use behavioural based interview techniques to prompt past work or study related examples using the STAR methodology.

The work sample will be based on a case study which simulate some of the common tasks or situations you may face in the position. You will be required to prepare some responses on how you would approach these scenarios and why you have taken specific actions.

Stage 3: Psychometric assessments

These assessments include an aptitude test (verbal, numerical and logical reasoning) and a workplace preferences test. You can complete these assessments at home or anywhere you have online access.

Stage 4: Pre-employment Checks

At this point, we'll speak to your personal and professional referees. We will also conduct national criminal checks, so make sure that you declare any incidents from your past.

Stage 5: Job Offer

We'll call you to make an offer. If you accept, you will receive a letter of offer and then commence work in early 2019.
