How to apply and what to expect
Step 1 - Browse current opportunities
You will find a list of current job opportunities in the Epworth Careers Portal. There’s also the opportunity for you to submit an expression of interest for consideration for future roles.
Step 2 – Apply
Your job application can only be submitted through the Epworth e-recruit system, Mercury. Once you are set up, it’s a simple step-by-step process. You’ll be asked for information such as your personal details, a relevant CV, a cover letter (if required), acknowledgement of some pre-employment requirements and finally your consent to submit the application.
Once you’ve submitted your application, you’ll receive an acknowledgement email from us.
Step 3 - Selection process
Once you have submitted your application, we will review your application and shortlist successful candidates. If your application is shortlisted, we’ll reach out to you and have an initial conversation about the role and what you’re seeking in your next opportunity. From there, if there’s a match (you’re interested + we’re interested), you’ll be invited to an interview. If you are unsuccessful in being shortlisted, you will receive an email from us, however we encourage you to register your interest for future opportunities.
Step 4 – Interview
You’ll participate in a blended interview, which is a mix of technical and behavioural questions where you will also have the chance to ask us questions. From there, we’ll reach out to conduct reference checks on candidates for final selection. Our final selection is based on all elements uncovered by us throughout the complete interview experience.
Step 5 – 'Get to know us' discussions
During your application journey, we’ll try to have you meet as many relevant people through the process to help you to decide if Epworth is right for you. You will speak with your new line manager and on occasions, a couple of team members, a member of our People & Culture team or a senior manager.
Step 6 – A formal job offer or meaningful feedback
If you’re offered a position and you accept (we hope you do!), you’ll negotiate a start date. Read ‘Your first 90 days with Epworth’ to learn more about what to expect next. If you’ve been invited for an interview and we don’t progress with you, the hiring manager will reach out to you and give you some constructive feedback. We aim to notify all unsuccessful candidates by email, to advise you of your application progress.
Our job advertisement will include an application close date. If your application is successful, you may hear from us before the close date. Generally, you’ll hear from us between two to four weeks from the close date to know if you’re progressing to the next stage, being considered, or aren’t progressing.
