How to apply

All job opportunities can be found on our job search page.

Your resume and cover letter will be required for your application. In some instances, your written response to a role’s key selection criteria will also be required. This is will be indicated in the job advertisement.

Please ensure all attachments uploaded are in .doc, .docx or .pdf format when submitting your application.

Shortlisting and interviews

A selection panel will review and assess applications and select a shortlist of candidates to progress through the selection process. Stages of the selection process may include:

  • Phone screening
  • Group assessments
  • Panel Interview
  • Psychometric assessment
  • Reference check

How you can prepare for an interview

Prepare for your interview by understanding the job context and environment and reflecting on your skills and experience against the key selection criteria.

The panel will ask questions related to the key selection criteria of the role. It is common that behavioural questions will be asked where you should provide examples of past experience, demonstrating your experience and capabilities.

The interview stage is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions and find out more about the role to help you work out if the role is really for you.

If further assessment is needed, we may ask you to complete a practical exercise or second interview. Some positions may also be subject to a psychometric assessment.



Reference checks

You may be asked for contact details of at least two professionals or work-related referees for reference checks to be conducted as part of the selection process.

Your referees should ideally be your current or previous managers and are aware they will be contacted to discuss their experience working with you.

All appointments to MCM are subject to reference checks and pre-employment safety screening checks specific to the role.



Safety screening

MCM is required to comply with pre-employment safety screening requirements as a funded organisation. Prospective employees will be required to undergo a pre-employment safety screening process as part of the selection process.

Appointments to MCM roles will be subject to the following safety screening checks as they apply to each role:

  • Proof of Identity Check
  • National (and International if applicable) Police Check
  • Corrections Victoria Security Screening
  • Victorian Employee Working with Children Check
  • Work rights in Australia
  • Current and valid driver licence.
  • All costs associated with safety checks (except National Police Check) will be at candidates’ expense.

Letting you know the outcome

The hiring manager will contact the preferred candidate to advise of their successful application and discuss the conditions of your proposed employment. Candidates who were interviewed but not successful should also be contacted and advised of the outcome.

Candidates who do not progress to the interview stage will generally be informed via email. Due to the high number of applications MCM receives, feedback is generally only made available upon request to candidates who have been interviewed.
