Our aim is to get the right people in the right roles ... building our capability for the future


Throughout our recruitment process we give you the opportunity to show us why you’re a great fit for our company and meet people from across our business – so you can ask questions and determine whether Downies is the right company for you.

To ensure fairness and consistency in our recruitment process, we have the following steps in place:

Step one: 

Complete the on-line application form, and upload your resume and covering letter. Make sure your application addresses the selection criteria outlined in the job advert or position description.

Step two:

Once we've reviewed your application, you may be invited to attend a telephone interview. A telephone interview usually takes about 15 to 20 minutes, and we'll ask you to nominate a time that suits.

Step three:

If shortlisted, you will be invited to attend an interview with the hiring Manager and a member of HR. This is your opportunity to learn more about the role and our business – and to answer both behavioural and skill-based questions.

Depending on the role we may have a second stage interview, or ask you to complete an additional assessment.

Step four:

With your permission will contact your professional referees and conduct reference checks.

Downies will respect your Privacy at all times throughout the selection process. You can view our Privacy Policy by clicking on the Privacy & Security link in the menu on the left hand side of this page.

Step five:

All job offers at Downies are subject to the satisfactory completion of a National Criminal Record Check. Downies will administer and cover the cost of this check.


Thank you: We appreciate the time and effort required to prepare and submit your application, and will be in contact with you by email to let you know how your application is progressing.
