FAQ – Application Process
Applying seems complicated? Not with us! Please find answers to frequently asked questions here.
Our application process is conducted online. As soon as you find a job advertisement that you are interested in on our careers portal or job board, simply click on ‘Apply Now’ and send us your relevant application documents.
Yes, we do sponsor suitably qualified candidates in certain situations, as we are an employer of choice that encourages diversity and equal opportunities to all. However, there will be positions that require Australian citizenship to obtain an Australian Defence Security Clearance.
Not all roles require an Australian Defence Security Clearance right now, however all candidates must be eligible to obtain one if required. There are specific roles within the organisation that do require a level of security clearance to do the work. If this is a requirement of the role, we will clearly articulate this within the job advertisement. To learn more about Security Clearances head to: https://www1.defence.gov.au/security/clearances/about/overview
When applying, please submit a personal cover letter, your CV and any relevant qualifications in Word or PDF format. You can also attach further application documents such as any relevant certificates and/or licences.
You will find the correct contact person for a vacancy in the contact window on the right-hand side of our job advertisements. It is not absolutely necessary to address your application to a specific contact. You are therefore welcome to address it in a general way or to address it to the local HR department. If you have further questions on how to address your application, please contact our colleagues in the Talent Acquisition team.
You will find the start date of a vacancy in the relevant job advertisement. However, if the advertisement does not mention a specific start date, this means we are looking for a new employee to start at the earliest opportunity. We will of course take the relevant notice period of a suitable applicant into consideration.
The application process is still open for a position as long as you can find the job advertisement on our careers website. We will state the application close date within the job advertisement, so you know when we are closing the process for applications in advance. We do however reserve the right to close applications early or withdraw the advertising should something change during the process. If you are in any doubt, please feel free to enquire about the status of a position with our Talent Acquisition team.
To let you know that your application has been successfully submitted, we will send you an automatic confirmation of receipt within a few minutes. If you have not received this, please check the spam folder of your email inbox.
We want to make sure that each application is carefully checked and we therefore make every effort to give you feedback as quickly as possible. Every candidate will be responded to and will receive an outcome on their application. You will generally receive an initial response within four weeks. Processing can take longer than this in individual cases. You are welcome to contact us and enquire about the status of your application in this case.
Should several positions in our company spark your interest, you are welcome to apply for them. To do so, simply submit your application documents for the relevant job advertisements that you are interested in.
