Job hunting preparation
The aviation industry is specialised so you will need to be on the ball when looking for employment. No matter what part of the sector you want to work in you should find out who all the major employers are and set yourself up job alerts. In addition to the airline companies themselves, there are a few recruitment companies that list only aviation vacancies.
Most applications regardless of what you are applying for require you to undertake a security or background check, including Federal Police Check and a pre-employment drug and alcohol screening. You will need to be an Australian or New Zealand Citizen, or an Australian Permanent Resident.
Read the job application carefully and make sure you address all the criteria. An Air Traffic Controller trainee recruitment process can take some months to complete.
