Please note that all job applications must be received online, either directly through NBN Co’s jobs site or via an external job advertising site.

What happens after you apply?
After we receive your application, our recruitment professionals will review your details, then compare your skills and experience with the requirements of the position. We will also consider you for other available positions in the company.

Should you be shortlisted for a position, our recruitment team will contact you for an initial telephone interview. Be prepared for this, as this is the first stage, prior to a face to face interview with the hiring manager. The recruiter will assess your cultural, technical and motivational fit to NBN Co.

Pre-employment checks are mandatory for all shortlisted applicants. You will need to provide contact details for appropriate referees including recent, direct supervisors.

Additionally, you will be required to complete drug and alcohol testing, employment verification checks as well as security and background checking. This will include producing certified copies of original documentation satisfying the 100 points of Identification requirements.

There are further checks required for certain positions and they will be detailed in the job description.
