    If you follow our Fletcher Building LinkedIn page you’ll see who in your network currently works here.

    If you’re already registered with us, hit Apply Now on your mobile device and it’ll take you through the process. You’ll just be a few clicks away from applying for your dream role.  If you are new to us, you’ll need to have your CV available on a cloud platform like Google Drive or Dropbox, then follow the prompts- applying on the move has never been easier.
  8. What do I do if someone has referred me to Fletcher Building?
    If your referrer is a current Fletcher Building employee then simply ask them to refer you through the intranet - this way we capture all of the details and we can thank them too. If is an external person thank them as they have just given you some great advice!
  9. When should I discuss salary?
    We want the process you go through to be as seamless and straightforward as possible - we like to remove stumbling blocks as early through the process as we can. Discuss your salary expectations with the recruiter during your initial conversations.
  10. What information should I have ready if I call the Fletcher Building Recruitment Team?
    The role title and reference number is a good start - If you also have the recruiter’s name you will already be in our good books. All relevant information helps us get to a solution for you as quickly as possible.
  11. How will I know if I’ve been unsuccessful?
    Depending on where you are in the process we will either call or email you. We will always get back to you as quickly as possible.
  12. I don’t have a CV, do you have a template I could use?
    Yes. Our suggestion would be a brief and informative CV. It should summarise your skills, education and experience gained throughout your career or study, supported by dates and referees. There are no hard and fast rules around the length of your CV but a good rule of thumb would be to make sure that all the information is relevant. Highlighting your achievements is helpful and demonstrates use of your skills in action, which is important to us as a potential employer.

    You will receive an email straight away from us acknowledging your application. After this someone from our recruitment team will be in touch within a week of the role closing date. We always aim to be in touch as quickly as possible, because we understand how important this is to our candidates.
  15. If I’m unsuccessful will you still have my details?
    Yes. We know that the first job you apply for may not be the perfect match. But with so many opportunities at Fletcher Building, the perfect job is likely to come up. If you have signed up for job alerts you’ll continue to be alerted to relevant roles. It’ll speed up the process for you the next time you apply for a role with us.
