Frequently Asked Questions
At Downer we are always active in our search for talent and have a large team that work to manage recruitment and selection. Our goal is to ensure that you have a positive experience when you apply for a job with us. With that in mind, we have provided some information below so that you know what to expect when you apply for a job.
How do I search for current opportunities?
All our current vacancies can be viewed on our “View Current Opportunities” page.
If you do not see a job that interests you, register for Job Alerts, accessible on our “View Current Opportunities” page. That way, you will be notified when a job that you may be interested in is advertised.
How do I apply for a job?
Once you have identified a specific vacancy, please submit your application by clicking on the “Apply” button on that particular advert. You will need to provide contact details including an email address, and a resume to do this.
What happens after I apply?
Once you apply, you will receive an acknowledgment email. This will only be generated by our recruitment system once you successfully lodge an application.
Your application will be reviewed by one of our experienced recruiters. Our goal is to get back to you no later than 2 weeks after the closing date of a position.
Should your application not be successful, you will be notified to that effect by e-mail. As you are already registered in our database, your details will be retained on file and we invite you to apply for any future roles which may be of interest to you and which match your skills set.
Who can I speak to if I still have questions?
If you have a question about a specific role you can contact the recruiter for the role you have applied for. The name of the recruiter will be on the initial acknowledgment email you received. If you do not know the name of the recruiter, you must know the job number and division the role is being recruited for so that you can be directed to the right person.
If you have a general enquiry, you can call reception and ask to be put through to a particular division.
Our contact numbers are listed on the “Contact Us” page.
