Applying for a job at the Superannuation Complaints Tribunal

Our recruitment process has four stages: Application; Selection; Offer and Security clearance.

Each stage is done for good reason. Each stage in the process will help us find the best people for the Superannuation Complaints Tribunal.

To be eligible to apply for a job with Superannuation Complaints Tribunal, you must be an Australian citizen.

1. Application

We ask that you submit a cover letter (one page) and reflect the selection criteria - highlighting your skills, previous experience and achievements – in your CV (4–5 pages).

All our jobs have a unique job reference number. Please quote this on your cover letter.

Once your application has been received and the closing date has passed, your application will be reviewed. Should you progress to the interview stage, you will be notified by phone from one of our recruitment specialist.

2. Selection

Your recruitment specialist will discuss the selection process in more detail at the relevant time. However, a typical process is likely to include:

  • A phone screen with the recruitment specialist.
  • An interview with the selection panel which will include the manager.
  • A reference check for the preferred candidate/s. Two verbal references will be taken and must include your current manager. Your peers or friends are not suitable referees.

At times, the process may also include:

  • A second interview.
  • An online psychometric or skill assessment either at the application or interview stage. These assessments provide us the additional information against the selection criteria which are critical for the job.

3. Offer

If you are successful, a verbal offer will be made by your recruitment specialist or manager. We will then send you an offer pack which will include an offer letter, information on working at the Superannuation Complaints Tribunal, your role and employment conditions and a pre-engagement assessment pack.

4. Security clearance

As part of the offer pack, you will be required to satisfactorily complete a pre-engagement assessment pack to determine your suitability for employment. The security questions are comprehensive but they have been created to ensure every employee has the appropriate level of security to the work the Superannuation Complaints Tribunal undertakes.

We will validate your education, employment history, current and previous address history and membership with professional groups. Some of the information provided will be validated with other government agencies.

If the Tribunal receives information that is inconsistent with your application, this may result in an offer of employment not being made to you.
