Recruitment Process

Vacancies are typically advertised through Seek and/or LinkedIn and you can apply directly via those sites. Some vacancies may also be advertised through an external recruitment agency.

All applications should include a cover letter (no more than one page) and a CV (preferably no more than 3 pages).

If you are shortlisted for an advertised position, you will be contacted via phone in the first instance for a pre-screening interview. The purpose of this is to obtain some initial information about your suitability for the position and your current situation. At this time, you will also be given some more information about the role and what the next steps in the recruitment process are.

The typical next step would be an interview (face to face or online via TEAMS) with the hiring Manager and a representative from People and Culture. The purpose of this interview is to find out more detail about your relevant skills and experience. For some positions, you may also be asked to attend a second interview.

Applicants who are successful through the interview process will be asked to provide contact details of professional referees.

Lung Foundation Australia is an equal opportunity employer and we welcome all applications. Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people are strongly encouraged to apply, as are those identifying as LGBTQIA+.
