Recruitment process

We are committed to hiring people for our organisation that are best suited to the role. Applicants are shortlisted based on their responses to the key selection criteria. They are then invited to attend an interview with a recruitment selection panel.

The aim is to select the person whose skills, knowledge, personal qualities and experience best match the requirements of the role.

Some positions need a Working with Children Check or a Police Check. The position description will say if this is required.

Applicants may also need to complete a pre-employment misconduct declaration.

We are a safe and inclusive workplace for all applicants. Workplace adjustments can be made specific to individual applicants’ needs during the recruitment process. Please email to view a copy of the policy.

Re-employment restrictions

Re-employment restrictions apply to people who have received Victorian Government separation packages.
