How to apply for a job with us

Applying for any of our jobs is simple, however please set aside 15-30 minutes of your time before you start, because we like to get as much information as we can from you before making a decision on who we would like to interview. The process involves three simple steps.

Use the search box to find the position you are interested in

You can do this by either entering a ref number (if you have seen the position advertised) or by entering a keyword. Alternatively, if you want to view all our current job listings simply click on the VACANCIES tab above.

Address the Key Selection Criteria

An important part of applying for a position with us is responding to the Key Selection Criteria (KSC). The KSC is contained in the position description and you need to write short statements that explain your specific capabilites for each of the criteria. These should be approximately one to three paragraphs in length for each criteria and should be expressed concisely.

It is recommended that you save your responses in a word document and then paste into the application form when you are ready to apply.  You may be timed out after 20 minutes if you haven't completed this process.

Upload your cover letter and resume

If you have a letter and resume in a compatible format simply upload it onto our system by following a couple of simple steps. If you do not already have a professionally formatted resume you can use our system to build one for you free of charge. This may take you a little longer, but having a well laid out resume certainly helps your chances of getting an interview with us.
