Common questions about our job application process

You can create an account on the Australian Unity Career Opportunities site and register for job alerts that can be emailed out to you. Instructions on how to create a job alert via the My Job centre are below:

1. Click on My Job centre

2. Click on Job Alerts

3. Click on the Create New Job Alert Button

A pop-up window will open asking you to create your job alert. Job alerts are sent to you by email.                        

You can have all available opportunities sent to you by email daily, weekly or every two weeks. You can either choose to have all new opportunities at Australian Unity sent to you or you can filter the alerts to suit your preferred job category, location or work type.

Once registered, you will be sent job alerts for six months.

Your candidate profile is available for you to review, modify and delete at any time.  We encourage candidates to update their resume and contact details via the My Profile section of the site.  Click the Update button if you want to upload a revised resume.  

You also have the option to delete your candidate profile entirely by going to the My Profile section of the portal and selecting Delete Profile. 

For a quick response, please log into the Australian Unity careers opportunities site at any time to check the status of your application via the My job centre > Job applied section of the site.  Your history of job applications and the status of each application will be visible.

Candidates may apply online for a specific vacancy or join our online talent community within your local area via our website.  Applications are open to candidates who have an interest in working for Australian Unity and have valid work rights in Australia.  

Applicants or registrations of interest should be submitted either online or via enquiry at your local branch.  For more information see our careers website.  

We do not accept applications from non-panel recruitment agencies, search firms or external parties on behalf of candidates either through our careers opportunities site or directly via Australian Unity representatives.  

You must be an Australian or New Zealand citizen, a permanent resident or have a specific visa allowing unrestricted work rights when you apply to be considered for a job with us.  

Keep your resume simple, concise, easy to read and focused on selling your skills.  We'd prefer that your resume is no longer than four pages.  And of course, make it professional and clearly written with no grammatical errors, spelling mistakes or typos. 

Applications should ideally be made online via our careers opportunities site so that your application is electronically stored in our resume database.  

For careers in Home services across NSW, you may also enquire about a career with us at your local brand.  The local branch staff will be able to assist with your application.  

Once you apply for a vacancy or join our talent community, you will receive an automated response via email confirming receipt of your application.  Make sure you check your junk folder in case it gets moved there.  The Australian Unity talent acquisition team will review your application and advise you of the next steps as part of either a specific selection process or as part of our talent community. 

If your application is not successful for a specific vacancy we will advise you by email and your details will be retained on our database for future opportunities.  

Some roles are open for a period of one to two weeks; others will remain open until the position has been filled.  

Yes.  You are welcome to apply for any of our roles that you believe match your experience and interests.
