Interview and selection process

For: Information seekers

After the closing date for a position, we review and assess the applications received and contact those who are selected for an interview.

Selection for interview

If you applied for a position and have been selected for interview, we will contact you to arrange a date and time.

Interview location and details

  • the interview location
  • any other requirements, such as whether there will be a work sample test, presentation or we would like to see a folio of your work.
