Our recruitment journey

What to expect when you apply at VMIA.

Step 1 – Application submission

Once you’ve decided to apply for a role at VMIA, submit your online application and upload your resume and cover letter.

Make sure your contact details are accurate and current so we can contact you during the recruitment process.

Step 2 – Screening and shortlisting

We will review your application to see if your skills and experience meet the minimum key selection criteria. We’ll let you know as soon as possible via email if you’ve been shortlisted.

Step 3 – Interview and assessments

You’ll be sent a link from the Talent Acquisition team to start with a video interview where you record your answers and submit your responses for our review. If successful, you’ll be invited to formal interviews. Some roles may include a second-round interview. Interview questions are usually behaviourally oriented and based on each of the key selection criteria. For some roles we may ask you to complete additional assessments such as psychometric assessments and presentations.

Step 4 – Reference checks

Once you’ve completed interviews and assessments, we’ll ask for references from your most recent employers to confirm you have the skills, experience and any other information that has been provided throughout the recruitment process. We ask for a minimum of two referees.

Step 5 – Verbal offer

We make decisions based on merit and free of discrimination or personal bias. Successful candidates will be made a verbal offer over the phone and confirmation will be sent via email.

Step 6 – Letter of offer and contract and probity checks

Once the verbal offer of employment is accepted, a letter of offer and contract is issued. Unsuccessful candidates are notified within two days of an offer being accepted.

All successful candidates are required to complete probity checks prior to commencing employment.

Probity checks cover:

  • The right to work in Australia
  • Employment History
  • Academic credentials check
  • National police check
  • Financial background checks (e.g. AML, bankruptcy) for applicable roles

Step 7 – Onboarding & Welcome

You’ll be contacted by your manager in the week prior to your start day to discuss plans for Day 1.
