The selection process

  1. Submit application for advertised role

  2. QFES reviews applications

  3. Interview

    If you are shortlisted, you will be invited to a formal interview with QFES.

  4. Referee Checks and Required Assessments

    You may be required to complete assessments associated with the recruitment and selection process, i.e. aptitude, psychological, and QFES may undertake referee checks.

  5. Criminal History & Integrity Checks

    Appointment to a role will be contingent on the satisfactory outcome of a check of an applicant's recorded criminal history. You will be required to disclose any criminal history and/or charges (including convictions which are not recorded), at time of interview, as per the provisions of the Criminal Law (Rehabilitation of Offenders) Act 1986, section 9A(1).

    A criminal conviction or charge will not automatically exclude you from consideration.

    All personal information obtained in the application process will be treated confidentially and held securely by the Department. Applicants who have lived or worked overseas will also be required to provide a current police clearance.

    If you do not consent to a criminal history check, QFES will be unable to advance your application.
