1. Application Form

The application form allows you to tell us all about yourself, your work experience and the types of opportunities you are looking for in your career.  From here, we can best align your capabilities to the vacancies that we currently have within our business.

2. Screening and Shortlisting

All applications we receive get reviewed by our Recruitment and Operations Teams against the specific criteria for each role.  During this stage, we are looking for:

  • Relevant work experience
  • Specific technical skills and knowledge
  • Appropriate licences and qualifications

These requirements vary from role-to-role, depending on the needs of the business.

They will ask specific questions in relation to areas such as your availability, work experience, interest and career aspirations. This is also a great opportunity for you to ask questions of us, to get a better understanding of whether the role is right for you.

3. The Interview

Once suitable candidates for roles have been identified, you will be contacted to attend a formal interview.  This will either be as part of a group, or an individual face-to-face interview.

Group Interview

Group interviews allow us to see a number of candidates at the same time.  We use this opportunity to assess how you perform in a group environment and your interactions with others.  These sessions are conducted by representatives of the Operations Team, as well as members of HR.  There will still be an opportunity to have a one-on-one interview during the group interview process.

Face-to-Face Interview

The face-to-face interview will take place with the relevant hiring manager and/or a member of the HR Team.  These are generally conducted using behavioural-based interview questions, designed to provide us with real-life examples of how you have handled certain situations in the past, relevant to the role you have applied for.

Depending on the role, you may be required to attend for a second, face-to-face interview.
