Preparing to Apply

Found your perfect role? Amazing – Let’s get started!

Application Process

When you are ready to apply, simply click the ‘Apply now’ button.
The application form will guide you through all the mandatory questions (e.g. personal information, contact details, recent work history and education) and will allow you to attach any relevant documentation. You may also be asked to indicate your availability to work over a selected period (e.g. weekly, fortnightly) and your salary expectations.
We ask our applicants to record a single 5 min video in response to the provided questions, normally just 2 questions. Finally, we ask that you answer some questions about your relevant work experience and / or the job requirements, before you submit your application.
You will be able to review a summary of your application before submitting. Once you have reviewed your application, click ‘Submit’ to send your application to us.


If you’re invited to an interview, it will be conducted by a panel of two or three (or more) members depending on the role. Your interview can be in person or online. We’ll send you all the information in advance so you can prepare.
At the end of your interview you will be advised what the next steps of the process will be and what pre-employment checks may be required for the position, should you be successful.
At the interview, be authentic and show your passion. We seek those who want to make a positive impact. Also, don’t be afraid to tell the panel about your mistakes and how you corrected them – we see this as an opportunity to learn and find new ways to get better results.
Ask the interviewers to repeat the questions if required. Pause if you need to gather your thoughts or think about an example. It’s also fine to bring and use notes at your interview if they can help you provide some examples. An interview is a conversation, not an exam!

Will I Require Pre-employment Checks?

Yes. As a registered NDIS provider, Challenge Community Services must ensure that all new staff undergo pre-employment screening and obtain the checks required to maintain the organisation’s compliance with NDIS registration standards.

If you are recommended for appointment, proof in support of the requirements listed below will be required before you can commence with us:

  1. Right to Work Check
  2. Working with Children Check (Blue Card), or eligibility to obtain one.
  3. NDIS Worker Screening Check, or eligibility to obtain one.
  4. Reference Check
  5. Vaccination against COVID-19

After the Interview

Once your interview is complete, your selection panel will advise of the next steps required. Often this is waiting for your necessary clearances to be entered into our onboarding system.
If you are the successful applicant, you will be contacted by the team and offered an official offer of employment.

Equal Opportunity Employment
