New Recruitment Online is here...

From Sunday 27 September, the Recruitment Online (ROL) Applicant Portal was transformed into an intuitive, easy to navigate portal for both employees and external applicants as part of eduPay reimagined 2020.

A new link to login for external applicants is included below (Applicants - Searching or Applying for a Job) section.  Please update your favourites with the new link.  External applicants may browse all schools only jobs online, If you don't already have an previous external applicant login, you will be required to create a new profile in the new system to submit a job application

For current employees (internal applicants) access ROL seamlessly from within eduPay via a new Careers tile (Employee homepage > Careers > School Jobs) which enables browsing of all Department and other job opportunities across the VPS.

The new ROL is more intuitive, easier to navigate with screens that render correctly on all devices (such as your phone, tablet or computer).   For further assistance and system help including FAQs use the Help links below.
