How we hire

Our process can differ depending on the requirements of the role, but this is the standard you can expect.

We want to ensure you’re coming into an environment you’re comfortable with and one you can excel in. If you aren’t successful progressing to the next stage at any point, we'll let you know. We’re members of the Circle Back Initiative. It means we’re committed to responding to every job applicant.

You can also sign up for job alerts to be the first to know of future opportunities.

Online application

You’ll need to create a profile in our online jobs portal to apply for a role with us. Upload your CV and list your work experience and qualifications.

If you already have a profile, you can log in to apply for new roles or complete an outstanding application. You’ll receive a confirmation email once you have applied for a role. You can check the status of your application at any time by logging into your online profile.

Phone discussion

Our recruitment team will review your CV to determine your suitability for the role. If you’re successful progressing to the next stage, we’ll give you a call to learn more about you.

Questions we may ask include: What attracted you to the position? What matters to you? What salary package are you after?

For larger recruitment drives such as Graduate, Apprenticeship, and Contact Centre roles:
At this stage we'll also invite you to complete a 15-minute online cognitive test. This involves Abstract, Numerical, and Verbal reasoning tasks and problem-solving exercises.


The hiring manager will create a shortlist of candidates to contact for an interview. The interview is an opportunity for you to meet with the hiring manager and share how you are a good fit for the role. It’s also an opportunity for you to find out more details about the role and the team you would be working with.

Interviews take place at one of our offices or over a video call. We’ll let you know the next steps along with an approximate timeframe. We may request a second interview to allow other stakeholders to meet with you.

For larger recruitment drives such as Graduate, Apprenticeship, and Contact Centre roles:
You will need to complete a video interview in your own time. This involves filming short video replies for our hiring team to review. The next step is to take part in group activities at an Assessment Centre.

Pre-employment checks

While pre-employment checks may differ from role to role, they usually include:

  • Two reference checks from previous managers/ employers
  • Drug and alcohol screening
  • Police clearance
  • Right to work check
  • Qualification, trade or licence check

We’ll organise and pay for these checks for you. All field-based positions will also require a medical and functional assessment.

Formal offer

If you’re selected as the best candidate for the role, we’ll email you a formal offer. Once you agree to and sign off on this formal offer, we'll send you a link to complete your onboarding. You’ll need to complete this before your commencement date. We look forward to welcoming you to the team!

Frequently asked questions

Yes. When you set up a profile, you can sign up for job preference alerts. Head to your profile, select ‘job preferences’ and select which job types you’d like to be notified about. We’ll let you know as soon as a position becomes available.

We get back to everyone who applies for a job with an email or a phone call.
