The Recruitment Process

Wilson Security has grown to the present size of over 3,000 employees in Australia, and is still growing. This offers significant opportunities and development to our employees.

Our operations encompass the areas of security guarding, emergencymanagement, IT, traffic management, customer service, finance, accounting, administration and many more.

Our recruitment process reflects and supports our aim of sourcing people who can undertake their job effectively while contributing to the work environment. That is, people not only with the requisite skills, knowledge and competencies to undertake their particular job functions but also who will work towards the outcomes sought by the Wilson Group and embrace our culture. 

How to Apply

Reading the position description (available for most jobs) is the best way to assess your suitability and optimise your application.

The position description will indicate the skills, experience and attributes relevant to the role. Though we'll assess you against these criteria, you should still apply even if you don't meet them all, because we'll consider everything you have to offer and compare you with other applicants on the basis of your overall profile.

Application Details

The particular requirements for our job applications will be indicated in the job advertisement. Some jobs require a typed application letter and resume whereas some will require you to complete an application form which will give us all the necessary details to assess your background and suitability for the position.

Where an application letter and resume are indicated as requirements, it is helpful to show how you meet the criteria for the job. This could be encompassed in the detail of your covering letter.


We usually shortlist within two weeks of closing our advertising for a position. If you're shortlisted, we'll call you to arrange an interview and tell you who's on the selection panel as well as any other requirements such as testing or paperwork you need to bring.


The selection panel usually includes the position's manager/supervisor, and another person who's involved with the job. The interview process is designed to allow you to talk to us about your work history, how your experience and background meet the needs of the job, your interest in the particular role and in working at Wilson. The interview is also an opportunity for you to find out more about the particulars of the job, the people you would be working with and the environment you would be working in.

Other Requirements

All job offers are subject to referee checks. Most positions (other than casual appointments) also have a probation period. Some jobs also will be subject to certain screening checks such as a Police Clearance, security licence, current driver's licence, or numeracy and literacy testing.

We also require proof of your eligibiliy to work in Australia Australia and in some cases (depending upon the position), proof of your qualifications.

Notification Letters & Feedback

If you are not shortlisted, you will be advised in writing after we've made a decision and the successful applicant has accepted. This may take up to four weeks after the advertising for the position has closed.
