We have a four step selection process:
Step 1: Apply online
The online application is the first impression that the selection committee has of you. It is important to make sure your application contains all the important information the committee needs to make its assessment. There are two questions to answer, and a word limit of 250 words applies to each response.
We suggest you draft your answers in a text document so you can make changes easily, ask someone else to look over them, then upload your final version into our online recruitment system. You will also need to provide a current resume and your academic transcript.
Step 2: Online testing
If your application is successful, you will be asked to complete online aptitude testing. This exercise is designed to assess your communication, numerical and logical reasoning skills.
Step 3: Assessment centres
Based on your results from the online testing, you might be invited to participate in an assessment centre. The assessments include group activities, written exercises and an interview. They will be held in Canberra and run for about half a day.
Step 4: Offers
Based on the results from all the assessments, we will make offers to successful candidates. We'll tell also you if you are not successful and you can ask us for feedback.
