What can I expect at the interview?
At Amana Living we conduct both pre-recorded and face to face interviews. However due to recent COVID-19 events, video interviews are becoming more frequently used.
Video Interviews will be sent to you via an emailed link. You will be able to take the interview at a time and place that is convenient for you. We ask that the interview is completed as soon as possible, ideally within 3 days of receiving the email. It is important that you present as you would for an interview, however we are also very aware that interruptions can occur when you are doing this from home or in a public space! Don’t be alarmed, we take this all into consideration.
Face to Face interviews can be with our Recruitment Team in the first instance, or with one of our Managers. The questions asked in the video interview and face to face interview will be similar. A face to face interview for our direct care roles is most likely to occur at a facility, or at one of our corporate offices.
A literacy assessment is required for some of our vacancies. You will be advised when this is the case by the Recruitment Team. You will also be required to attend the interview with your 100 points of Identification.

Following review of your application you may be sent the pre-employment questionnaire by the recruiter who is keen to understand your fit for our vacancies, and culture. This will come via email containing a link to the online assessment.
What is 100 points of Identification?
Your passport and Drivers License are the most common documents used to confirm your Identification. Please follow the attached link to find alternative documentation you can use.
