Our Recruitment Process

At PICA Group, our doors are always open for individuals with diverse skills and competencies. We’re always looking for talented, passionate and customer-focused individuals to join our team.

The property management industry is not just about overseeing properties—it’s about establishing impactful relationships with people to help create positive, vibrant, and flourishing communities where everyone has an opportunity to thrive.

Being part of the rapidly expanding property management field presents many opportunities to grow and learn. If you’re interested in pursuing a career with one of Australia’s leading property services companies, we’re more than willing to welcome those new to the industry. Here is a peak into our simple three-stage recruitment process:

  1. Phone Interview

A recruitment team member will contact you to conduct a 15-20-minute call.

  1. Face-to-face interview

If you have the right skills and experience, you will be invited to attend an interview with the hiring manager and other team members. This interview can be virtual (with cameras on) or in person; depending on the role’s seniority, we may invite you to meet more than once. The interview format may vary. Most interviews will involve the hiring manager asking about your experiences and how you would handle real-life situations related to the role you applied for.

  1. Reference checks

If you have been shortlisted as the preferred candidate, reference checks will be conducted, and you will be asked to complete a national police check. With the successful completion of reference checks, you will be contacted with a verbal offer, and a welcome pack containing your employment contract will be sent to you to start you on your #PICAPeep journey.
