We have included a series of questions most commonly asked by candidates joining the Veolia team.


Applying for a Job
 

Does Veolia conduct pre-employment screening checks?
Veolia conducts pre-employment screening checks in an effort to make an informed decision about the people we hire; further protecting our reputation and integrity as a responsible employer.
 
Each pre-employment screening check is determined by the specific role and location of the potential employee. Such checks may include: identity, eligibility to work, qualifications, references and employment medicals.
Does Veolia accept resumes via email or postal mail?
No. We do not accept resumes or CVs submitted via email, postal mail, in person or through any medium other than our online application tool.
 
To view and apply for open positions, search for a job and get started.
 
Please call the relevant HR recruiter hiring the role if you have any questions about uploading your resume/CV.
Will I need to undergo a medical check, including drug and alcohol testing?
Depending on what type of role you are applying for, you may be required to attend a pre-employment medical assessment at one of our preferred medical centres.
I have submitted my application, when should I expect a reply?
Due to the number of resumes received, there may be some delay in the recruiters processing your application. Unsuccessful candidates will be notified via email. Only those candidates successful during the pre-screening process will receive a phone call.
 
We understand that as a potential applicant, you are anxiously waiting to be advised if you have made the shortlist. Where ever possible, we will endeavour to advise you as soon as possible.
