Completing your application

We receive quite a few applications for the jobs we post. Therefore, it’s important to try and make your application stand out from the crowd.

We’ll ask you to complete a section on your personal details, for example your address and phone number, then we’ll ask you to complete some more questions around your current position including things like your current salary and salary expectations. We’ll also ask you why you want to work here so it’s a good idea to do as much research as you can about us.

  • Make sure you complete the questions in the online application fully, ensuring that all the information you submit is accurate
  • When completing online applications, you might find it useful to write your answers in a word document first so you can review them for accuracy and content
  • Add as much relevant information as you can in your application for the role that you’re applying for
  • Check for punctuation and spelling and, if it’s useful, get someone to proofread your application before you submit it

Once you’ve completed the online application form you’ll have the opportunity to upload your covering letter and CV.

We’ll usually get back to you within a week or so of the closing date for the role that you’re applying for, and we’ll get back to you whether you’ve been successful in being selected for interview or not.

Psychometric testing

As part of our application process, for some of our roles, we use psychometric testing. If we’d like you to complete psychometric testing, following our review of your application, we’ll contact you with the details of how to access it.

Psychometric testing is used to measure your abstract, verbal and numerical reasoning skills and are timed tests. Verbal and numerical aptitude tests are generally multiple-choice questions which must be completed within a certain timeframe. An abstract aptitude test is normally a non-verbal test that uses shapes which you will need to answer questions about. The results of the psychometric tests will form part of the basis for interview selection.
