• Information for applicants

    Before applying for the job, we recommend you:

    • check you’re eligible to apply
    • carefully read the candidate information kit for information on the role, the selection process and the knowledge, skills and abilities we are looking for
    • phone the contact officer to discuss the position, the selection process and the work environment
    • preview the application form to see what information you're required to provide and what word limits apply.

    You can apply for a position with us if you are:

    • an Australian citizen (at the time you begin with the ATO)
    • of good character, as demonstrated by a satisfactory integrity check that will be carried out before you start working with us
    • able to satisfy the relevant medical check (if this is a requirement for the position).

    An integrity check involves checking police records, confirming your identity and asking you to complete a declaration of secrecy form and compliance with tax and superannuation obligations. Additional checks may also be necessary.

    If the work requires you to have access to classified material, you may also need a formal security clearance assessment.
