Recruitment process and FAQs

Our recruitment process

  1. We advertise current positions here and on many occasions on Seek and TradeMe. If we don't have anything available you can set up an alert to notify you when we do.
  2. Once you’ve seen a role you like the look of you'll complete our online application form and include your cover letter and CV.
  3. We'll get to work and review your application and let you know if we'd like to meet you. All applicants will be informed whether they have been successful in gaining an interview or not.
  4. If we’d like to meet you – we’ll suggest a phone call, formal interview or a more relaxed coffee chat. We'll let you know in advance what you can expect.
  5. We may require you to attend a second interview and/ or complete some assessments.
  6. We’d then need to chat to your referees. We'll make sure that you're okay for us to contact them and hear a little more about you, your previous work and abilities.
  7. Once we've made a decision, we'll let you know if you've been successful or let you know if not and provide some feedback. Good luck!
