 Make sure you complete your application form before the closing date!

WHAT DO I NEED TO APPLY ONLINE?

You will need a current resume, in Acrobat or Microsoft Word. You will also need access to the Internet and an email address.

How do I set up an email address?

If you don't have an email address, you might want to visit an email provider such as http://www.hotmail.com/ to create one - it's free!

CAN I FAX OR POST MY APPLICATION TO YOU?

Sorry. We only accept applications online.

HOW OFTEN ARE NEW JOBS LISTED ON THIS WEBSITE?

We post jobs regularly, often daily. However, if you don't want to check our site every day, you can subscribe to receive a Job Alert, which will notify you of any future jobs that match your employment preferences.

WHAT IF THE JOB I WANT IS NOT LISTED?

We suggest that you subscribe to Job Alert. This function will automatically notify you of any future jobs that match your employment preferences.

Can I apply for more than one job?

Absolutely. You are able to apply for any positions that match your skills and experience.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I APPLY FOR A JOB?

After you submit an application, you will receive an email to confirm that we have received it. You can then log in to our system to keep up-to-date with your progress.

We will let you know if you are successful in progressing in the recruitment and selection process.

As all of our correspondence is by email and SMS, please ensure your details are correct. If any of your details change, you can log back in to your online application and update your profile.

CAN I SUBMIT MY RESUME EVEN IF THERE IS NOT A JOB THAT INTERESTS OR SUITS ME?

If there are no current vacancies that match your skill-set and career aspirations, we suggest you set up a Job Alert. This will match any future positions with your job preferences. An email will then be sent to advise you of the new role.

WHAT IS A JOB ALERT?

The Job Alert function automatically searches for new jobs at Thiess for you. By creating a Job Alert and telling us your career preferences, matching jobs will be emailed to you for consideration.

WHAT IF I HAVE A TECHNICAL DIFFICULTY WITH MY APPLICATION FORM?

You may be having problems uploading your resume because the file size is too large. Files cannot exceed 2Mb in size. To help you reduce your file size, these tips might be helpful:

  • Compress pictures/tickets to make them smaller
  • Use .jpg format for pictures/certificate/tickets, and set your scanner for email quality
  • Try not to add too many pictures/certificates/tickets to your document

If you are still having problems, check to see if your connection is working by visiting other websites. If other websites are still working, and there is a problem with the Thiess careers website, please contact our support team at thiesshr@thiess.com.au. We will try to solve the problem as quickly as possible.

I CAN'T REMEMBER MY PASSWORD. WHAT CAN I DO?

On the left-hand side of the Careers page, you'll see a link called Existing Applicant. Click on it, then select the ‘Forgotten your password’ option. This will send your password directly to the email address you initially registered under.

HOW DO I CHANGE MY PASSWORD?

Log in as an ‘Existing Applicant’ and select ‘Change Password’ from your homepage. You will then be asked for your old password and your new password, as well as the secret question you would like to use for identification. Your secret question and answer will be used if you ever forget your password.

CAN I UPDATE MY APPLICATION ONCE IT HAS BEEN SUBMITTED?

Once you have submitted your application online, you will only be able to amend your personal details, update limited information on your profile (i.e. Education and Employment), or update your resume by attaching a new file.

HOW CAN I BE SURE MY APPLICATION WAS SUCCESSFULLY SUBMITTED?

When you hit ‘Submit’, a confirmation screen should appear. If you're not sure of your application status, you can log in as an ‘Existing Applicant’, and check under ‘Application Status’. If your application form has not gone through properly, your application status will be incomplete.

HOW CAN I SEE WHICH JOBS I HAVE APPLIED FOR?

When you log in as an ‘Existing Applicant’, any positions for which you have applied will be listed on your home page under ‘Submitted Job Applications’. You'll be able to view the title of the job, the date and time it was submitted, and the application itself.

THE SYSTEM SAYS MY EMAIL ACCOUNT HAS ALREADY BEEN FOUND. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

If you get this message it means that the email address is already present within our database.

If you have created a previous account but can't remember your password, you can select ‘Forgotten your Password’ to help you to log in again.

If you have not previously applied with Thiess, please use a different email address to log in.
