The Application Process

Forms

Applications must be made on a Wintec application form accompanied by a competency self-assessment and a current CV.

Timing

All documents must be received by Human Resources at Wintec on or before the closing date. We'll acknowledge your application by email.

Short-listing

Once applications are received, an interview panel will short-list the applicants, based on what you've sent us. If you're not short-listed, you'll be advised.

Qualifications

You'll need to provide proof of all relevant qualifications on the day of your interview. We'll accept a copy of the original qualification where it has been sighted by a Justice of the Peace or an official Wintec representative.

Interviews

Interviews are normally held within two to three weeks of the closing date and usually involve a two or three person selection panel.

Wintec encourages a behavioural approach to interviewing. This involves asking questions about your past experiences, to show the panel how you might deal with similar situations in the future, for example 'tell us about a time when you have taken steps to make a process more efficient and productive.'

Depending on the job, you may be asked to illustrate a range of skills such as taking a computer skills or word processing test, giving a presentation, presenting a lesson plan, providing a video of teaching, or presenting work samples.

Candidates are often invited back for a second interview before a final decision is made.

Referees

Referees of preferred candidates are contacted after the interview. Your current employer is the preferred referee.

The offer

If you're the preferred candidate, and your references check out, you will be offered the position, initially by telephone and then via a formal letter. Those who missed out on the job will be advised once the appointment has been accepted.

Equal Employment Opportunity

Wintec aims to provide a workplace completely free from discrimination. All job applicants are treated fairly and consistently according to their skills, qualifications, abilities and experience. All Wintec employees are expected to demonstrate a commitment to equal employment opportunity.
