The recruitment process
If you’re interested in joining a challenging, yet rewarding, work environment, you’ve come to the right place! AEMO has offices in Victoria, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia, as well as two in New South Wales. Find the career opportunity you’re looking for, no matter where you live.
Once we have received your application, we’ll review it to see if your skills and experience match the advertised role. For shortlisted candidates, the recruitment process can take several weeks and will look something like this:
We’ll be in touch by phone or email to discuss your application and gain some insights into your motivations and skill sets. If this aligns with our business practice, we can progress to an interview.
Finding out if we’re suitable for each other works both ways. After the initial calls we will arrange an interview with our Human Resources department. This could be a multi-stage process.
Depending on the role you are applying for, you may need to sit a skills assessment or other test.
Referees and background checks
As part of the process you will also be asked to agree to a pre-employment check, where we contact referees from your most recent roles. We also will require drug and alcohol testing, and a national police check, as a standard component of our recruitment process.
Congratulations, you’ve got the job
We’ll give you a verbal offer, then follow up with the relevant formal paperwork, such as a letter of agreement and employment contract. Once we have negotiated a start time and salary, and everything is signed, we’re good to go.
