+ INTERVIEWS - HOW DO THEY HAPPEN?

In a perfect world this process would be uniform, collaborative, swift and have a distinct timeline, making it easy for both the employer and interviewee (and us!).

Sadly, such perfection doesn't always exist but there are still some common elements to most interview processes.

As you can probably imagine, attending an on-site interview in a remote community isn't quite the same as jumping on public transport and heading into the CBD. There are considerable costs involved - travel, accommodation, telephone interviews, transfers and so on.

Q: How are interviews conducted?

A. Trans promotes a process which we believe to be the most practical in terms of fairness and of long-term benefit (ie: costs, retention rates). As we require a minimum standard of information from database candidates (jobseekers), so too, do we expect a similar commitment from our client employers. We encourage employers to conduct telephone or videoconferencing prior to selecting short-listed candidates for on-site interviews.

Q: Who pays for the cost of travel and accommodation to and from interviews?

A: These costs are payable by the employer. However, you may be responsible some meals and beverages. Telephone charges accrued at any accommodation on your interview trip are your responsibility.

Q: Who pays for travel to my new job?

A: There will be a relocation condition in your employment contract or job description. The costs of personal travel to your new place of employment are the responsibility of the employer. Different employers have varying relocation conditions regarding personal items, effects etc.

Q: If I was successfully appointed, I would have to give my current employer notice.  Could my new employer wait this long for me to start?

A. Employers understand that you need to give notice. Whilst we assume that all positions need to be filled immediately, realistically this isn’t always possible. Sometimes we engage a candidate on a temporary basis until the permanent employee is on-site. Employers will generally accept a 4-6 week wait for a new employee to start.

Q: Who pays for the service provided by Trans?

A. The service for jobseekers is free. The employer is charged a very small percentage of the annual salary for each position successfully filled from the Trans database (see our fees). This is a one-off fee payable upon the signing of the employment agreement. There is no charge to the candidate/employee.
