    Casual recruitment pools are used to employ casuals on an ad hoc basis. These advertisements are not for specific positions. Please lodge your application and if you have the required skills and experience a hiring manager will contact you directly. This is ad hoc work and the pool is renewed every twelve months so you will need to submit your application again for the new pool to be considered.

    A Working with Children Check is mandatory for certain positions that involve child-related work. Candidates for these positions must have a current Working with Children Check or be eligible to successfully apply for a Working with Children Check in order to be eligible for employment.
