FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • HOW DO I KNOW IF THE APPRENTICESHIP OR TRAINEESHIP IS RIGHT FOR ME?

    It’s often hard to know if you will enjoy or succeed in your apprenticeship or traineeship before you commence.

    Although it can be a very rewarding industry, there is a lot more to these apprenticeships and traineeships than meets the eye. We recommend you take some time to learn a little more about these trade specialisations on our website. Find out more about the trades on offer here

  • WHAT DO I NEED TO APPLY?

    You will need a cover letter and a resume highlighting your interests in the chosen trade and the relevant skills you will bring to your apprenticeship/traineeship.

    A cover letter is your opportunity to tell us:

    • a little bit about you,
    • why you want the apprenticeship/traineeship, and
    • what makes you right for this role.

    Tell us about what interests you, what you do in the local community and why it will make you a great apprentice or trainee for Origin.

    Think of your resume as a catalogue of your skills and experience. We’d like to see your school and subjects listed along with your grades and any pre-vocational certificates you have completed, plus any full-time or part-time work.

    Make sure you include any work experience or volunteer work where you may have had the opportunity to be part of a team. And don’t forget to list any clubs or groups you are actively involved in.

    You will need to include two (2) referees and their contact details in your resume. It’s a good idea to have your referees in mind and start talking to them about providing a reference if you are successful in moving forward with your application.

    A great referee is someone who knows your skills and strengths, has managed or mentored you and can tell us about what will make you a great apprentice or trainee. They might be a teacher at school, a manager at work or a coach of a sports team you play for.

  • I LIVE OUTSIDE THE WESTERN DOWNS REGION CAN I APPLY?

    This apprenticeship and traineeship intake is about creating employment opportunities and career pathways for Western Downs locals. Local applicants are preferred. 

  • CAN I APPLY FOR MULTIPLE ROLES?

    Yes, you certainly can. To be considered for multiple roles you must apply for each position separately. Each trade is very different and requires different strengths and interests. We suggest you develop a tailored cover letter for each role you are applying for highlighting your strengths in the different apprenticeships and traineeships on offer.

  • HOW LONG IS THE RECRUITMENT PROCESS AND WHAT’S INVOLVED?

    A place with Origin is highly competitive and the selection process takes a number of weeks. You must participate in each round to be considered for an apprenticeship or traineeship position.

    The full selection process involves:

    ROUND 1  Phone Screen.

    Successful candidates will be contacted for a phone screen to briefly discuss the details of their application and clarify any questions upfront specific to the role. Those applicants who successfully pass the phone screen will be asked to participate in a more formal Skype or FaceTime interview and arrangements will be made to confirm a suitable time.

    ROUND 2 – Skype / Facetime / Phone Interview.

    Candidates will be interviewed by a MIGAS Recruitment Officer via Skype, FaceTime or phone to assess suitability for progression to the next round. In this round candidates will also be asked to participate in online skills testing.

    ROUND 3  Assessment Centre and Panel Interviews.

    Shortlisted candidates will be invited to attend an assessment centre, where they will participate in team activities, supervised testing and panel interviews with Origin and MIGAS. The interviews will take place across two days and candidates will be provided all details on their participation requirements when they progress.

    ROUND 4 – Reference Checking.

    Following the panel interviews, reference checks will be completed for shortlisted candidates. This is why it’s important to include two (2) referees and their contact details in your resume at the time of your application.

    ROUND 5  Medical Assessment.

    Shortlisted candidates will be required to complete a medical assessment before final offers are made. This will be organised and paid for by Origin and you will be advised of where to go to complete the assessment. This will take place in mid to late November.

    ROUND 6  Employment Offers.

    Employment offers into the program will be made to the successful candidates by mid to late November. You will first receive a verbal offer of employment, followed by an electronic offer (emailed documents) and relevant new starter information from MIGAS Apprentices and Trainees.

    Timing and structure may change during the course of the recruitment process.

  • WHAT HAPPENS AT AN ASSESSMENT CENTRE?

    An assessment centre is a group assessment where you and other applicants in the running for the roles will be assessed on your practical ability, teamwork, communication skills, ability to problem solve and adapt to different situations. You will be involved in a number of individual, group and practical activities that will be relevant to the position you are applying for.

    Our assessment centres generally start with an introduction and overview of the day followed by an ice breaker to help everyone feel relaxed. Then we move on to the individual and group exercises where you will be assessed by our team throughout the day.

    You can prepare yourself by simply being yourself and ensure you’re interacting and contributing to the activities throughout the day.

  • WHEN DO APPLICATIONS CLOSE?

    Applications will close on Sunday 4 November 2018

  • HOW WILL I BE NOTIFIED IF I’M SHORTLISTED OR UNSUCCESSFUL?

    Candidates will be advised if they have progressed to the next round of the selection process. We encourage you to keep an eye on your phone and emails during the course of the selection process.

    Shortlisted candidates will be contacted by either phone or email to confirm their progression.

    Due to the number of applications we receive, we cannot provide individual feedback to unsuccessful candidates. Those who are unsuccessful will be notified by email. 

  • WHAT HAPPENS NEXT IF I’M SUCCESSFUL?

    If you are successful, you will receive a phone call with a verbal offer of employment. This will be followed up by a copy of your employment contract and all other documents regarding your employment with MIGAS Apprentices and Trainees.

    From here you will have direct communication with your appointed MIGAS Field Officer regarding your MIGAS and Origin inductions and any additional tickets or training required before your first day.

  • WHEN DO THE APPRENTICESHIPS AND TRAINEESHIPS COMMENCE?

    All roles will commence in January 2019. Successful candidates will be advised in their employment contract of their exact start date.
