Lodging Your Application

Applications must be received by the closing time and date specified in the advertisement. We are unable to accept late or emailed applications. Our preferred option is for job applications to be lodged online through the current vacancies section. You will receive an electronic receipt confirming your application has been submitted.

Alternatively if you prefer you can also send your application (marked Confidential Advertised Vacancy) by:


HR Officer
Human Resources
Department of Justice
GPO Box F317

Hand delivery

Reception (Recruitment Branch - Job Applications)
Department of Justice
Level 23 David Malcolm Justice Centre
28 Barrack Street

All submitted documents should contain a header or footer stating your name and the relevant position number and title.

An application only needs to be submitted in one format, ie. electronic or hard copy.

Unless your handwriting is neat and legible, applications should not be handwritten. Please ensure they are stapled in the top left corner. Do not put applications in plastic sleeves or cardboard binders.

If you would like to change your application at any time (including the submission of extra or forgotten attachments) this must be done prior to the closing date and only by resubmitting your application in full.

Under no circumstances can we accept any documentation by email about job applications.

Closing date and time

Applications received after the closing date and time will not be accepted. It is your responsibility to make sure the application is received by Human Resources before the closing date and time.

If you are posting your application, do it several working days prior to the closing date as the Department does not take responsibility for the postal service’s failure to deliver an application before the closing date.

If you are using a third party, for example a recruitment agency or courier service, you are still responsible for making sure your application is received by Human Resources before the closing date and time. The Department does not take responsibility for late submissions of applications through the fault of a third party.

Please consult the Consideration of Late Applications document for clarification. If you are concerned your application has not been received in time please contact the HR Officer for confirmation on 9264 1777.

Always keep a copy of your application for personal reference.
