    The recruitment process may vary for each role. Typically, our Talent Acquisition Partners will review your CV against the purpose of the role. If you have the suitable skills and drive, we’ll call you for a phone conversation and/or you’ll be asked to complete an online assessment. From there, you will either attend a series of interviews or an assessment centre to show your values, skills and experience. Bankwest completes comprehensive background checks to people being offered roles and these are completed before you are able to start with us.
