Spotted a role that interests you? Great! Head to our careers page and upload your resume, cover letter (optional) and answer 8-10 quick questions to support your application.

Stage 2 - Screening and interview

Our recruitment experts review each submitted resume for suitability to the role. Applications that most closely align to the experience and skills required to successfully perform the role progress to a phone interview for screening.

Once phone screens are completed, we advance the top three to five candidates who have suitable skills and experience for the role to an interview with the hiring manager.

  • Cleared Working With Children Check (NSW) or Working with Vulnerable People (ACT)
  • Cleared police check conducted by The Y (International check may be required)
  • Evidence of your right to work in Australia
  • 100 points of identification

  • Relevant qualifications

Stage 4 - Offer and on-boarding

This stage is where we move to a formal offer of employment with The Y NSW. Congratulations if this is where you’re at!

We are passionate about giving employees a great start, so after you receive and accept your formal offer you will receive log in details to our online on-boarding program. This is where your journey with the Y formally begins.
