    Assessment activities

    • If you progress to the next round, you'll be invited to attend an assessment centre where you may be asked to undertake; an online cognitive ability assessment
    • an activity designed to assess the skills, behaviours and competencies that lead to good job performance
    • a face-to-face interview with a panel of ATO staff.

    Preliminary decision

    At this point, your performance from all assessment stages of the process will be reviewed and your suitability determined.

    Final checks and offer

    We'll conduct a number of pre-employment checks. Any offer of employment will be subject to the results of the enquiries being satisfactory.

    If everything is okay, you'll then be able to accept the formal offer and start your career with us in early 2018.
