The stages of application

Below is a guide on what to expect at various stages of the recruitment process. It's a little more thorough than applying for other jobs. But then a career with us is more rewarding than other jobs - so stick with it. You will be assigned a Candidate Coordinator who will help you through the process.

Please note:

  • The time it takes to be accepted into the Candidate Pool will also depend on your motivation and readiness for the various stages of the recruitment process and assessments.
  • Depending on the needs of the service, Defence Recruiting reserves the right to close off applications for a specific trade when necessary, or to offer an alternative trade suggestion.
  • To help with processing time ensure you respond to requests for information as efficiently as possible.
