Frequently Asked Questions...

Who views my cv and job application?

Your application will be viewed by the Hiring Manager of the department the current vacancy exists in; i.e Organics Laboratory Technician applications will be viewed by the Organics Department Hiring Manager.  The Hiring managers are often our Team Leaders and Section Managers as well.

I have applied for a role, when will I hear back about my application?

All online applications for current vacancies are sent an automated email response acknowledging your application and advising that you will be notified within two weeks of the Closing Date about your success in shortlisting.  We do receive a large amount of applications for our Technician roles (in particular) so this timeframe allows our Hiring Managers to review all the applications thoroughly for shortlisting purposes.

I have applied before but was unsuccessful, is it worth applying again?

Yes.  As each vacancy is handled by different department Hiring Managers it is possible that your application can be viewed by a different Hiring Manager each time you apply.  If you were not successful in being shortlisted for one vacancy it does not mean you will not be successful within another department as each department can be looking at a different skills sets, qualifications and experience.
