I've applied, what happens next?
We will go through each application as they arrive and do our best to let you know, as soon as possible, whether you have made the team or not. If you’re selected, you’ll have some time to clarify any necessary information and make updates to your availability.
We understand that sometimes life gets in the way of good things and from time to time people need to withdraw their application, it would be appreciated if you could make your decision BEFORE 1 August when we get started on the rostering process as after that it really makes our job super tricky!
