- I am having trouble resetting my password; what should I do?
I don’t meet every single requirement of the advertised role; should I still apply?
Although there is healthy competition for the advertised roles at Gold Fields, our hiring managers also look-out for a strong safety aptitude, transferable skills and qualifications, and most importantly, a positive attitude, so if a role is of interest, and you don’t necessarily ‘tick’ every single box, we still encourage you to apply.
What if I want to discuss the specifics of a role with a recruiter?
We ensure our job adverts are highly detailed which takes the pressure off our recruitment team who process a constant stream of calls and emails daily. Even if you feel unsure about a role, we still encourage you to apply. There will always be opportunities to ask questions during the phone-screen stage if your application progresses further.
Can I communicate directly with a Gold Fields recruitment or hiring manager?
Due to the high volume of interest in our vacancies, it is not possible for our recruitment team or hiring managers to liaise with every single candidate. We will be in touch regarding the next steps should we decide to progress your application further.
How much will I get paid?
Gold Fields does not divulge salaries over the phone with candidates. However, if an application progresses, and the candidate successfully completes the pre-employment checks, then a confidential conversation between the recruiter and the preferred candidate will take place.
I have applied for a role; what happens next?
Our response times may be slightly delayed due to the high volume of applications we receive, so the best advice is to remain patient. The recruiters reserve the right to start shortlisting immediately, however once the shortlist is on-site, feedback is dependent on how quickly the hiring managers respond – and this too can be dependent on their workload and roster. We will however, always make it our priority to respond as soon as we can.
I have applied for a job and just received a rejection email; can I get some feedback?
Regretfully, due to the high number of applications we receive, feedback on every single submission is not possible. However, please note that the recruitment process is extremely competitive, and we encourage you to continue applying for roles that are of interest to you.
I have had an interview; is my offer coming?
It is most likely the recruiter is completing a number of interviews concurrently with yours, and at the end of the interview, he/she would have provided an indication as to when you will receive feedback.
If you have been selected as the preferred candidate, you will be provided with an offer upon successfully completing all pre-employment checks.
I have been advised that I am progressing through to the next steps of the pre-employment process. How long can I expect the process to last?
Many factors determine the length of the pre-employment process, including your availability for a medical, how quickly you apply for your police clearance, how easily the recruiter can get hold of your references and how expediently you provide any requested information to the recruiter.
Contacting references is often what causes delays during the recruitment process, so to assist in fast-tracking the process, it is advised that you contact your references in advance, so they can expect our call.
There can also be internal delays outside of the recruiter’s control. Wherever possible, the recruiter will keep you informed of any delays, however your patience is always appreciated throughout this process.
How can I prepare myself for the pre-employment process?
Once Gold Fields has decided to progress to the pre-employment-checks stage, we will require a National Police Clearance (less than 12 months old), the details of at least two reference checks, a driver’s licence, proof of residency or the Right to Work in Australia, and relevant qualifications, tickets and certificates relating to your position.
For specific senior positions, a psychometric assessment will also be required.
Will I have to do a medical with Gold Fields?
A pre-employment medical assessment is mandatory before working at any of the Gold Fields sites. The medical comprises of a drug and alcohol screen, a role specific musculoskeletal assessment with a physiotherapist and a full medical history. Gold Fields will cover the costs for these tests and the candidate’s suitability for the role will only be advised once the results have been reviewed by the company physician.
