At My Gateway, we receive hundreds of applications each month for a range of apprenticeships and traineeships. We also receive a number of enquiries on how to apply for these roles and what our recruitment process involves.
One key thing to note is that My Gateway is not a recruitment agency. Applying for a job does not mean you have signed up with us and we will automatically find you a job. My Gateway is actually a group training organisation, which works a little differently…
A group training organisation (GTO) is an organisation that employs apprentices and trainees, and then places them with a host business who they work for, while receiving on-the-job training for their apprenticeship or traineeship.
This is our process from start to finish if you are successful in gaining employment through us.
If you find a job of interest, click on the title and read the job description. If you think you are suited for the role, click apply, complete the online form, upload your resume and cover letter.
You can also fill out our Expressions of Interest form if there is not a specific job currently available that appeals to you. If a suitable role comes up in the future, our team may contact you to discuss the opportunity.
As previously mentioned, our Recruitment team receive and analyse many applications so it may take a few days to hear back from us. If your application fits the selection criteria, a member of our team will be in touch. We will also advise you if you are unsuccessful.
We will give you a quick call to discuss the role you have applied for and confirm the location and duties. If you are still interested in the job, we will book you in for an interview.
You will either come to our office for a face-to-face interview or do the interview online via a video call. Just like any other interview, we will ask you some behavioural and situational questions to determine whether you are suited for the role. You will also complete an application form and an aptitude assessment specific to the trade or industry you have applied for.
We will contact your provided references and if everything sounds good, we will proceed with referring you to the Host Business where the employment is taking place.
You will have the opportunity to meet with the host business and its team members. They may ask you questions around why you have chosen this career path and on your experience and studies. Some meetings may even include a one-day trial or tour of the job site.
Congratulations, you have been offered the job! We will contact you to finalise the last few steps. We will advise you of key dates like the first day of employment, induction etc.
You will receive an email from us with our Policies, Procedures and a copy of your Employment Contracts, which you will need to review and sign before you begin work. You will also provide us with your new starter information such as bank account details, tax file declaration form and superannuation details.
At your induction, you will sign your contract to make you nationally recognised as an apprentice or trainee. If you are under 18 years old, if possible, please bring a parent or legal guardian with you to sign the contract on your behalf.
