Our recruitment process

We appreciate the time and effort everyone takes to apply for a job with The Foundation. Here’s what to expect during the recruitment process.
 
Initial telephone introduction
Our recruitment specialist may get in touch for a chat about the role, find out more about your experience, and see if you have any questions.
 
Face-to-face interview
If you’re short-listed, we’ll ask you to come in for an interview with up to three people who you’ll be working closely with. Depending on the role, it could be one interview or several. Interviews typically include a combination of competency-based and technical questions. This way, we can understand how you like to work and see your experience against our selection criteria.
 
For roles that have a focus on working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and/or programs, we will have at least one Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person on the panel.
 
Assessments
For some roles, you may be asked to undertake a further assessment. Most can be completed online and they help us understand your work preferences, skills and ability. Depending on which job you’re applying for, we may ask you to prepare a short presentation based on a particular scenario or case study.
 

Background checks 

Criminal record
A person’s criminal history does not automatically exclude them from working or volunteering with us, but any criminal convictions must be disclosed when you apply. All applicants will be required to undertake a criminal records check.
 
Working with children check
As a child safe organisation, all applicants applying for positions which have access to children will be screened for suitability to work with children, youth and vulnerable people.
