Know what to expect when you apply for a job at Downer.

At Downer we are always active in our search for talent and have an experienced and well established internal recruitment team. We value your interest in our organisation and our goal is to ensure that you have a positive experience when you apply for a job with us. With that in mind, we have provided some information below so that you know what to expect when you apply for a job.


How do I search for current opportunities?

All our current vacancies can be viewed on the 'Current opportunities' tab.

If you do not see a job that interests you, register for Job Alerts on the left hand side. That way, you will be notified via email when a job that you may be interested in is advertised.

How do I apply for a job?

Once you have identified a specific vacancy, please submit your application by clicking on the “Apply now” button on that particular advertisement. You will need to complete the application form for that position, providing relevant information including an email address, resume and previous experience.

What happens after I apply?

Once you apply, you will receive an acknowledgment email. This will only be generated by our recruitment system once you successfully lodge an application.

Your application will be reviewed by one of our experienced recruiters. Our goal is to get back to you no later than two weeks after the closing date of a position.

Should your application not be successful, you will be notified to that effect by e-mail. As you are already registered in our database, your details will be retained on file and we invite you to apply for any future roles which may be of interest to you and which match your skills set.

Who can I speak to if I still have questions?

If you have a question about a specific role you can contact the recruiter for the role you have applied for. The name of the recruiter and contact information will be on the bottom of the advertisement. If you need to find this information again, simply add the job number in the Job search section back on the careers website to be directed to that role.
