The selection process by Victoria Police is based on merit. Once your application has been received and the job closes, a short-list is selected and these people are invited to attend an interview which is conducted by a selection panel. Our aim is to select the applicant whose skills, knowledge, personal qualities and experience best match the job requirements, as defined in the position description.
The length of the selection process can vary considerably from case to case, depending on factors including the number of applications received and work demands of the recruiting manager and panel. Typically, it may take around eight weeks from advertisement to appointment.
Please note that the point of contact for Victoria Police positions is located on the job advertisement and any queries should be directed either via phone or email to the contact person listed.
