Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to apply online?

It is preferred applicants apply online for positions advertised on the career portal. If you don't have an internet connection at home; friends, family, internet cafes and public libraries may have internet access and could be good places to try to access the application site from.

If my internet connection drops out when I'm in the middle of my online application, will I have to start the whole application again?

No. The system should have saved where you were up to, and should email you a login and password which you can use to log back in and finish your application.

If I forget my password to login, do I have to start a new application?

No. Go to the Existing Applicant Login page, enter your email address, and your password will be resent to that address.
