Recruitment Process

What you can expect from us:

If we want to connect with you about your application it’s likely you’ll receive a call from one of our team to introduce themselves and the role in more detail and undertake a brief telephone interview to help us understand more about your experience and your expectations.

Interview:

If we progress you’ll have a face to face interview arranged by our team. Interviews are a great way to find out how we could work together – to make sure the role is a strong fit for both of us. At the interview you’ll be asked a mix of questions.

Be prepared to talk about your past experience, what you’ve done, how you’ve acted and what results you’ve produced and what you’ve learned.

We believe how you’ve performed in the past is a great indicator of how you’d work with us.

Come prepared for the interview and make sure you have thought about the questions you want us to answer for you.

Some times a second interview or other form of assessment may be required during the recruitment process – for example  if you want to be a Postie on a cycle round – we’ll assess your capability on one of our Postie bikes.

We’ll always let you know what you need to do or bring with you to the assessment.

Final steps:

We’ll contact you as soon as possible regarding the outcome of the interview.

We will always require reference checks to be completed for all new people coming into our business (normally two) and one of these will need to be with your current manager. All of our roles require completion of a satisfactory Security (Ministry of Justice) report.

For some of our roles you may also be required to complete Alcohol and Drug screening and/or a satisfactory credit history check (we’ll get your permission before conducting these).

If your role is dependant on having a qualification - for example a forklift operator or Legal Counsel - we’ll ask you to provide evidence of the necessary qualification as well.

If you’re the successful candidate, we’ll make you a verbal offer first and follow up with a formal written offer including all the detail.

Your New Zealand Post recruiter will keep in touch with you all the way through this process.

Then your induction into your great new role begins – congratulations and welcome on board!
