Failure to provide this information WILL result in your application being rejected. Résumés may be used as a secondary source to validate the education and the experiences described in candidates’ answers to the pre-screening questions.
2. Your answers to the Text Questions within the TEXT section of your application will be used to evaluate the following essential qualifications: Planning and organizing, Working effectively with others, Client focus and Analytical thinking. Therefore, it's important to complete this section. This phase will be used to assess the Ability to communicate effectively in writing.
3. Those that are found to have met ALL of the Essential Qualifications will be placed into a partially assessed pool of candidates for positions available across the country. Should your name be selected for a position, you will be contacted for an informal interview to ensure we are a good fit for each other. We will then need to confirm your language ability, receive proof of education and then security screening.
