HOW OUR RECRUITMENT PROCESS WORKS

  • 1. Apply online

    You can apply online for one of our advertised roles via the job search section on our careers page.

  • 2. Shortlisting

    A member of our People & Organisation team will work with the Hiring Manager to review all applications and decide on which candidates are the right fit to progress through to the phone screening stage.

  • 3. Phone screening

    For some roles, a member of our People & Organisation team will conduct a short phone interview with candidates to gain a better understanding of their suitability for the role. The outcome of these will be discussed with the Hiring Manager and a decision will then be made on whether to progress candidates to the interview stage.

  • 4. First round interviews

    Candidates who progress to first round interviews will be contacted directly. Generally, the first round interview will be conducted by a member of the People & Organisation team and the Hiring Manager. Other key stakeholders may be involved at this stage if it’s deemed appropriate. The interviews consist of questions relating to the candidate’s work background, their focus and motivational fit, as well as how they respond to different work situations.

  • 5. Second round interviews

    Suitable candidates may be invited to attend a second interview. This usually involves other key stakeholders. The interview follows a similar format to the first round interviews.

  • 6. Reference checks

    We complete two to three reference checks for all roles. At least one of these should be a previous manager (NB: this does not have to include your current manager).

  • 7. Pre-employment checks

    Most positions require pre-employment screenings and functional capability testing. This will be discussed with you during the interviews if it is applicable.

  • 8. Offer of employment

    A decision is made on the preferred candidate by considering all the information we have received through the recruitment process. A member of the People & Organisation team or the Hiring Manager will contact the preferred candidate to discuss the offer.

  • What if I am unsuccessful?

    If a candidate is unsuccessful in progressing through any stage of the recruitment process, a member of our People & Organisation team or the Hiring Manager will notify the candidate either via email or phone.

  • Casual Positions (Bairnsdale Bakery)

    Some of our casual positions in our bakery are not advertised. If you’re looking for casual work at our Bairnsdale Bakery, please apply via GBS Recruitment.
