Due to current travel restrictions into Australia, we will be unable to process applications from international candidates until further notice, unless applicants are currently already in Australia and in possession of a current visa with work rights.

Application Process

Once you have created a candidate profile you can check the status of your application at any time by logging into your profile.
To ensure your notification does not go to your junk/spam folder, please add to your address book.

Interviews for seasonal positions will be held via a video format called “Sonru”. If your application progresses and you are invited to complete a video interview, we will notify you via email with a link to complete your interview. Reviewing interviews is an extensive process and your patience during this exciting time is appreciated. All applicants will be contacted as soon as possible after interviews are completed regardless if you are successful or not.


Once you have logged into your interview via the email link, and before you commence your interview, you will have an opportunity to take part in a practice interview to shake off any of those pre-interview nerves. Your interview will involve a series of questions with an allocated amount of time to answer each question verbally using your phone, tablet or webcam.

Unlike a Skype interview, there isn’t a person asking the questions from another webcam. This means the benefit of using the Sonru application is you, the candidate, can complete your interview at a time which is convenient for you anywhere in the world! 
Where appropriate, we may request a phone and/or a face to face format in which case the hiring manager will be in contact with you directly. 

Employment Offers

Successful applicants will have an Employee Profile created and receive an electronic letter of offer containing all details of the position being offered. As a successful applicant you are required to either accept or decline your offer by the expiry date.
Once an offer is accepted, you will receive further pre-employment on-boarding activities sent to your Employee Profile via the Talent Centre. Please ensure you complete all activities before the expiry date and keep all your personal details in your profile up to date.


I've got the job! What happens next?

Once you have accepted your employment offer and completed all required on-boarding activities then your main point of contact will be your manager. They will be in contact with you regarding your start date and first day of work. Keep in mind, most start dates are snow dependant. We understand you are eager to arrive and get started as soon as possible. If, at any time, you are unsure on anything regarding your employment send an email to and one of the team will respond to you.
