Your accuracy in completing this document package is an assessable component of the recruitment process.

    Your previous history will be assessed (traffic, criminal, employment, etc.) at this stage and throughout the entire selection process.

    It is important that you fully disclose all information relating to prior history including past employment.  Failure to disclose information can result in your application being cancelled.

    If you are unsure and would to like check if your offence history will affect your application, you can consult the Prior Offences History Guidelines and complete a Voluntary Disclosure Form which will be assessed prior to submitting your application.
