|Where do I send my CV to if I'm interested in jobs?|
|Please do not take your CV into our stores as all recruitment for Farmers is managed through the Human Resources team. In order to be considered for a position with us, you need to create a profile and apply for positions online at www.farmerscareers.co.nz |
|What’s a profile versus a job application?|
|The first part of the process in applying for a position is the creation of your profile. Your profile includes all of your personal details, CV and any preferences such as pay rate, locations, hours and days of availability.|
As part of your profile, you can also indicate whether you’re interested in being emailed job vacancies that match your preferences. We refer to this as “job alerts”. The more accurate your profile, the more accurate the job vacancies you’ll be alerted to.
If you do find a job that you’re interested in, simply click ‘Apply’. You may be asked some additional questions relevant to the particular position you’re applying for. This is known as your job application.
|How do I register my interest?|
|It’s easy!... just click on “Vacancies” on our Careers Website then click on “Want to stay informed” to register your interest.|
|I’m having technical difficulty. Where can I get some help?|
|We use a database called Snaphire which is owned and managed by a supplier. If you have technical difficulties and are coming unstuck with either your profile or your application, you can email email@example.com.|
|How do I apply for a job?|
|Once your profile is set-up, you can search for jobs by location, expertise, level, work type and/or keyword. Once you’ve read the job ad, simply click "Apply Now" at the bottom of the ad.|
|I’ve registered, what do I do now?|
|You can search current vacancies. If there are no vacancies that suit you, ensure your profile is up to date and wait to be alerted about vacancies by email.|
|What’s an “expression of interest” mean?|
|There are certain positions where we prefer to advertise for expressions of interest on an ongoing basis. These ads will be clearly marked as ‘Expressions of Interest’. Once you’ve made an application, we’ll keep in touch as vacancies become available that suit you. Unlike jobs where we manage a selection process, our expressions of interest are longer term. Simply put, it’s putting you on our radar.|
|Do you have any Christmas vacancies?|
|We’ve had thousands of candidates enquire about Christmas vacancies this year. We do have a very large database and prefer to use this before going to market for seasonal positions. So you may not see Christmas vacancies advertised. However, if you are interested, you can create a profile and list “Christmas” as one of your preferences. That way, you should come up in our database search.|
|Where do I find information about being a Farmers Model?|
|All talent enquires should be made to:|
62 Models & Talent Ltd
1 Beresford Sq
PO Box 33662
Retail Booker- Kelly Hotham
Ph: 09) 377 6262
Fax: 09) 376 3329
|I’m having trouble updating my profile with my preferences|
|Some of the sections of the profile require you to make a selection from a list. This is a three step process:|
|How do I change or reset my password?|
|Click on "Forgotten your password". Enter the email address you registered with and you’ll be sent an email to reset your password. If you cannot remember your email address, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org |
|I’m having trouble uploading my CV|
|This is usually related to two issues. Either your CV is too large or in the incorrect format. Both are easily fixed.|
Too large? Remove any clipart or graphics you’ve saved in your CV and try again.
Wrong format? Resave as a Word or text document and try again.
|The system tells me I’m already registered|
|If an email address is already registered with us, you will need to either use another one, or use the Lost my password option to reset your password and update your existing profile. Our preference is that you do not register again as it creates duplicate profiles about candidates and makes it hard for us to use our database.|
|How can I get alerted to available job vacancies?|
|One of the questions in the profile asks you to select whether you want to be alerted. Selecting "yes" means you’ll receive an email alert when a new job vacancy is advertised. |
|I’m not sure which vacancy would suit me. Where can I get help?|
|Why not take our Career Quiz.|
Our quiz takes your interests, current situation, career goals, and experiences, and explores what possible career paths would suit you at Farmers. From store administration to fashion sales, there is something for everyone at Farmers!
Click here to start.
|I’ve already submitted an application. What happens now?|
|Unless we’re advertising on an ongoing basis for expressions of interest, all other job vacancy advertising includes a close date. Once the job advertising has closed, the Farmers HR Shared Services team will shortlist CV’s. Unsuitable candidates are generally advised within a week of the advertising closing. If there is a delay in the selection process, we generally email to advise. Therefore, it’s important that you keep your profile and details up to date.|
What evidence is required to prove my eligibility to work in New Zealand?
When will I be required to provide evidence of my entitlement to work in New Zealand?
You will be asked to indicate your circumstances as part of the application process. Should you then be invited to interview, you will need to bring the evidence with you. A Farmers Manager or a member of Human Resources will sight, copy and verify the evidence.
If your application is successful and you are offered a position with Farmers, we will retain copies of your entitlement on your personnel file.
If your application is unsuccessful, your information will be retained until the end of the selection process and then destroyed.
Where can I get more help regarding the immigration requirements?
Please refer to the New Zealand Immigration website.
