What if the position I am looking for is not advertised?

Do I have to attach a resume when I apply for a role?

Do I need to have an email address to apply for a role?
Yes, your email address is your user name.

Why do I have to create an account? What do you do with my information?
Creating an account will make it easier for you to apply for future positions and keep track of current and past positions.

Your account and application data are subject to our privacy policy and our terms and conditions. You may delete your account at any time by emailing a request to careers@ruralco.com.au

Must I review the Privacy Statement before applying for a role?

Can I apply for more than one job?

What format should I use for my resume and cover letters?
We accept Adobe (.pdf) and Word (.doc and .docx) documents. Adobe (.pdf) is preferred. Your documents should not exceed 2MB (per document). Be sure to select SAVE after you have loaded your documents.

How does applying via a JobBoard differ from applying directly via the Vacancies Portal?
If you apply via Seek or another JobBoard, you will receive an email within 48 hours of your submitting your resume, asking you to log in to the Ruralco Vacancies Portal to complete our application process. Please ensure you select EDIT before and SAVE after you add your information for each section in the application process. 

What if I forget my login information?
Your “Username” is your email address. If you’ve changed or forgotten the email address you used when applying you will have to register again with a new email address and re-enter your personal information.

If you forget your password, click on “Forgot Your Password?” button and you will be asked your three security questions and a new password can be reset.

How do I know if you have received my application?
Once you have completed the application process, you will receive a confirmation page indicating you have successfully submitted your job application. You will also receive a confirmation email at the address you specified in your application.

If you do not receive a confirmation, or you receive an error message, you can contact careers@ruralco.com.au to report the problem.

Will I be notified if the job has been filled?
Positions remain on our website until they are filled. Unfortunately, we are not able to contact everyone when a position is closed. You will be notified that a position has been filled if you have interviewed for that position.

How can I withdraw my application?
You are able to withdraw your application at any time by logging into your profile and selecting ‘Withdraw’ next to the job application that you want to withdraw.

Who can I contact for any further recruitment enquiries?
If your question has not been answered here, you can send a request for information to the Recruitment Team at careers@ruralco.com.au
