How do I apply for a position?
We will advertise opportunities on Seek.com, if you wish to provide an expression of interest, send through a covering letter and resume outlining your experience, qualifications and any other supporting information for the position you wish to be considered for in the future. Email this to hr@scientificpest.com.au
Will I receive a response to my job application?
All resumes collected will be vetted by the HR Manager. If there is a position vacant at the time you submit your application or in the next three months and if you meet the required criteria, the HR Manager will make contact with you via email to confirm if you are interested in the current opportunity.
Will I need to provide any further information?
If you meet the criteria for a specific position, the HR Manager will provide you with a copy of the Job Description and an Employment Application Form, which will need to be completed and returned prior to being offered an interview.
Will I be expected to complete a medical assessment?
For some positions with SPVM, we do conduct pre-employment medicals when it is a requirement of our clients to do so. These are conducted by external, independent and accredited workplace health solution specialists chosen by SPVM. You will be required to sign a consent form and have this undertaken within thirty days of employment with SPVM. This is used as a tool to ensure that you have the capacity and will be safe to perform in the position you have applied for.
Will I be expected to provide referees or to undergo any background checks?
Yes. As part of the selection process, candidates will be asked to provide at least two referees whom the hiring manager can contact by phone. It is preferable that these referees are or have been your direct manager/supervisor. References will only be conducted by the manager after you have given permission for your nominated referees to be contacted. The SPVM representative will ask your referees to comment on your work behavior and can be asked to verify or comment on claims made by you.
Will I need to provide a police check?
For some positions with SPVM, we do require you to have the capacity to undertake a Federal Police Check. This may also be a client requirement.
Do I need to have the capacity to work in Australia?
Yes. To be eligible for employment you will need to provide evidence that you are an Australian Citizen / Permanent Resident or that you have a working visa.
How do you select people for a position?
The selection of candidates for positions in SPVM is determined by skills, knowledge, experience and the personal qualities that best match the job requirements, the SPVM Vision, Mission, Values and our Strategic Direction. Once your Employment Application Form has been received, you will be advised if you are shortlisted for a position at which point SPVM will assess your ability to perform the job through interview questions and referee checks.
