Graduate recruitment process

Applications for our graduate opportunities are now open.

There are 7 steps in the graduate recruitment process for all graduate roles. This process is designed so you have many opportunities to showcase your skills, personality and motivations through written, face-to-face and groupwork activities.

Please note, if you meet the suitability requirements for multiple positions, you may be offered a position outside of the one you initially applied for.

Find out more about our graduate program.

Your performance in each step of the assessment process will determine if you progress to the next stage.

  • 1. Fill in an online application form

    Complete an online application, where you will select your role preferences and attach the following:

    • an up-to-date resume
    • your most recent academic transcript.

    Once you have submitted your application you will receive an invitation to complete a PredictiveHire interview.

  • 2. Complete a PredictiveHire Interview (screening stage 1)

    As part of your application you will need to complete a PredictiveHire interview. You will be sent an assessment via Hudson to complete the online text-based conversation, which will take you 30 minutes to complete.

    Find out more about the PredictiveHire process.

  • 3. Complete an online E–Tray assessment (screening stage 2)

    If you are successful in proceeding to the next stage, you will receive an invitation to complete an online assessment, which will take 60 minutes to complete. This short online assessment is so that we can understand how you respond to real workplace situations, issues, and problems.

  • 4. Complete a writing assessment online (assessment stage 1)

    If you are shortlisted from stages 1 and 2, you will be invited to undertake an online written assessment. Hudson allows up to 5 days to complete and return this assessment.

  • 5. Attend a virtual assessment centre (assessment stage 2)

    The virtual assessment centre is a live interactive experience, where you will be required to complete an interview with a Department of Transport and Main Roads representative, and a group activity. Interview questions will be behavioural-based, and your responses should include relevant examples that demonstrate ability and/or experience.

  • 6. Provide references for referee checks

    The reference checks are the last stage in the recruitment process. Your referees will be contacted to submit online reference checks.

  • 7. Outcome of the recruitment process

    If you are made an offer after your assessment centre, you will either be phoned or emailed to make the offer. An emailed offer will then be sent for you to formally accept and you will be asked to complete a number of important employee onboarding activities ready for your start date.

Our graduate program is now open until 29 August 2022.
