How to apply

We want to make it as easy as possible for you to work with us.

Before you apply, please read the job advertisement carefully. It is important that you feel confident that both the role and Landgate sound like a good fit for you.

Please don’t hesitate to contact the hiring manager and ask any questions that you might have about the role, Landgate or the recruitment process. They are there to help.

Best of luck with your application!

Section 51 of the Equal Opportunity Act 1984 (EOA) and Landgate recruitment processes

Landgate is committed to reconciliation and increasing our First Nations representation throughout our business.

Therefore, we will be applying Section 51 of the EOA to our recruitment processes as a measure to work towards achieving a higher representation of First Nations peoples, demonstrating our commitment to reconciliation and our RAP.

You will know if Section 51 of the EOA is applied to the recruitment process, as it will be outlined in the body of the advertisement.

For further details, see our FAQ document!

Step 1: Prepare your application – act fast

Your initial application will determine whether you progress to the next stage of the selection process.

Make sure you read the advertisement carefully and follow the instructions for submitting your application. Usually this is done online via the WA Government Jobs Board.

Typically, we only ask you to upload a copy of your CV, but you may be asked include a cover letter or complete a short online interview.

Your CV should:

  • Outline your education and training (including qualifications)
  • Reference your paid and unpaid work history
  • Highlight your most relevant experience and achievements
  • Ideally, include the names and contact details of two referees (your current or a recent line manager, who will be available to confirm your suitability for the role).

Please make sure we receive your application before the closing time. We can’t accept applications after the closing date and in some cases, we may even close jobs early if a suitable field of applications are received.

Step 2: Applicants are shortlisted

This is where an initial assessment of applications is completed and a shortlist of the most competitive applicants is made.

  • If you have been shortlisted - we will contact you and let you know what to expect next.
  • If you have not been shortlisted - we will endeavour to let you know as soon as we can and there is always an opportunity to receive feedback at the end of every recruitment process.

Step 3: Further assessment on those shortlisted

Depending on the role, a variety of approaches may be used to determine a candidate’s suitability for the job. Assessments may include a structured interview or a more informal meeting with the recruitment panel. In some instances, it may involve further processes - for example, we may ask you to participate in an assessment centre or some form of testing to assist in determining your suitability for the job.

Your referees may also be contacted during this stage.

Step 4: A recruitment decision is made

We evaluate all the evidence that we have gathered and identify which candidate is the best fit for the job. Landgate then writes to all applicants confirming the final recruitment outcome.

Step 5: Feedback is available to you

When you receive your letter about the outcome of the selection process, you are welcome to speak with the recruitment contact at Landgate for some constructive feedback.

All roles of six months duration or more are subject to a four-day breach period, meaning any applicant who believes the Public Sector Employment Standard has been breached can lodge a 'breach of standard' claim if they have been adversely affected by the decision.
