Careers Information

We’re uncomplicated, open and genuine. We work hard, speak from the heart and don’t pretend to be anything or anyone that we’re not.


Step 1. Apply Online

Simply apply online for an advertised position or register your interest. Be sure to include a current resume and, if you want to add more information, send a cover letter as well. You’ll receive an automated response acknowledging receipt of your application.

Step 2. People Team Screens Your Application

Once we’ve received your online application, our team will review it in line with the selection criteria. If we think you’d make a successful addition to our team and we have a suitable position available, we’ll contact you. If you meet our selection criteria but we have no suitable roles available for you at the time, we’ll let you know that we’d like to keep your details for when future opportunities arise. If you don’t meet our selection criteria, we’ll notify you that your application has been unsuccessful.

Step 3. Telephone Screening

When you meet our selection criteria, the next step is a telephone screening. This is a simple way for us to get to know you better. We’ll ask you to explain your experience further and why you’d like to work for EFC.

Step 4. Attend Your Interviews

Pending a successful phone screen, you’ll then be invited to attend a face-to-face interview with a relevant Manager/Hiring Manager. This may lead to further interviews and you will be notified of the time and location of your interview(s).

Step 5. Reference Checks are Conducted

If your interview is successful, we’ll conduct reference checks with your most recent employers. We’ll always ask your permission before we contact any referee you’ve given us.

Step 6. Your Job Offer

Finally, if after reference checking you application is successful we’ll make you a verbal offer of employment and send your contract and paperwork.

We also conduct background checks for all positions. This may include: National Police check, Working with Children, Employment History, Academic Qualification, Entitlement to Work, and a Global Media check.
