You are welcome to attend even if you were unable to make an information session!

  • Panel Interview: Postponed to ~ September 2020
    • Following the day hike, we will contact some recruits to come in for a panel interview so we can learn more about your interests, strengths, and what skills you bring to the team. These interviews will commence in September due to COVID.
  • Overnight Scenario: October 2020
    • Once the panel interviews have finished, the remaining recruits will be invited to attend an overnight scenario. More details to come for this.
