The Recruitment Process

  1. Eligible applications are ranked by all participating training centres for the interview shortlist.

  3. Successful applicants will have their CV, references, application form and documents sent directly to the matched DHB. The DHB will then undertake the employment process, which may require the applicant to complete the DHB’s application form.
  4. Unsuccessful applicants will be advised by email that their application has not been successful.
