Our Recruitment Process
At Jobfind we have a dedicated and professional in-house recruitment agency – our Human Resources team - who partner with local Managers. It’s their job to find great people everywhere. Our in-depth recruitment process ensures you have a full understanding of the role and have the opportunity to meet your future colleagues.
When it comes to finding the next great Jobfind team member we like to work in stages.
Stage 1: Send through an application
All our vacancies are advertised on www.seek.com.au. Applicants are encouraged to submit their resume along with a cover letter highlighting their skills and suitability for the role.
Stage 2: Let’s do a Phone Interview
If your application impresses, you may be asked to participate in a 10-20 minute phone interview with a member of our Human Resources team. During this interview you’ll be introduced to the role and asked a series of questions to match your skills, experience and attributes to the position requirements.
From this stage candidates will be shortlisted for an onsite interview and unsuccessful candidates will be notified by email or letter.
Stage 3: Let’s meet – the Onsite Interview
If we like what we heard, you’ll be invited for an onsite interview with 2 members of the Jobfind team (usually the Manager and another relevant stakeholder). The interview may last up to an hour and will further introduce you to the role and give you the opportunity to show your suitability through a range of activities such as case studies, role plays and experiential and behavioural-based questions.
For the interview you’ll be required to bring certain documentation with you including identification documents, copies of qualifications and, where relevant, documents certifying the right to work in Australia.
From here a preferred candidate will be shortlisted for job shadowing and unsuccessful candidates will be notified by phone.
Stage 4: Job Shadowing – See what it’s really like
In most cases, as a preferred candidate you’ll be invited back for a 1 – 2 hour job shadowing session. This session is designed to give you a hands-on understanding of the day-to-day realities of the role, meet future colleagues and ask questions about the role and working for Jobfind. During this session the Centre Manager will further assess your suitability for the role and see if you fit in with the existing team and culture of the Centre.
Stage 5: Checking you out - Reference and Suitability Checks
A member of the Human Resources team will contact you in order to seek and conduct 2 professional reference checks. Your referees should be line managers, preferably from the last 5 years. Your referees will be contacted by phone and asked a succinct series of questions to verify your experience and suitability for the role.
Where relevant, suitability checks will be undertaken to ensure you are able to work with children and/or vulnerable people.
Stage 6: Formal Job Offer – you’ve done it!
A member of the Human Resources team will make you a formal job offer, provide you with a contract and answer any final questions you have about working for Jobfind. They will also confirm your starting date.
Stage 7: Welcome to Jobfind - Induction and Starting Work
You may have the opportunity to undertake some of your induction training prior to your first day (there is an incentive available for this work which your HR consultant will discuss with you). During your first days and weeks you will be partnered with a ‘buddy’ and participate in an induction program overseen by your new Manager.
