Recruitment Gateway

Word version of job orders no longer accepted

From 14 November 2022, Word versions of job orders will not be accepted, only those submitted via the Recruitment Gateway will be progressed.

From 14 November 2022, services will use the Recruitment Gateway to create a job order. This replaces the current manual process of emailing a Word job order form to the recruitment team.


The Recruitment Gateway (Gateway) captures the required recruitment information, ensuring accuracy and efficiency with job orders and reducing recruitment timelines.

Note: The Gateway does not replace the Approval to hire process. You must still complete the approval to hire process before creating a job order on the Gateway. You will now be able to attach your approval to hire form(s) directly on the Gateway.

Use the Gateway to:

  • draft and submit job orders
  • assign job orders for approval (aligning to your internal approval structure)
  • check the status of your job order
  • raise amendment and cancellation requests
