Our recruitment process

Our recruitment process may vary, depending on the type of role you have applied for. We use a combination of telephone interviews, behavioural interviews, skills testing or job related assessments as well as qualifications and reference checking. Please ask the person who is reviewing your application what process they will follow and request a copy of the position description for the role you wish to apply for.

General advice on applying for a position with us:

  • Consider which location or campus you would like to work at. Part of our interview process is a face-to-face behavioural interview, so you would need to be at that location for your application to progress.   

  • Be clear on what role you have applied for and at what location.

  • Ensure your covering letter and résumé are up to date and you have thoroughly checked them for spelling and grammar.

  • Carefully review the job advertisement and follow any instructions closely.

  • Find a balance between detail and keeping your covering letter and résumé concise and professional. Explain all acronyms.

  • Ensure you have the appropriate working visa or residency for the location you wish to work at.

  • Depending on the role you have applied for, you may be required to undergo a criminal history check and working with children check. Rules are governed by the legislation in each individual country.

  • If you are shortlisted for the position, contact your referees, advising them what role you have applied for and with what company. Giving your referees as much notice as possible will provide you time to source another referee if one is unavailable. This is especially critical if your referees are overseas.
