Police checks

Parks Victoria now requires that some prospective employees undergo a National Police Record Check prior to an employment offer being made. This includes all seasonal Project Firefighters, newly appointed Field Services Officers (Fire Operations), Authorised officers and any position that has financial accountabilities.

As part of the job application you will be asked to acknowledge this as a mandatory pre-employment requirement and consent to the results of the check being returned directly to Parks Victoria. You are, however, not required to complete the consent form until instructed to do so by a Parks Victoria staff member. If you are a current Parks Victoria employee you are not required to undergo a check.

Having a criminal record does not automatically preclude you from being employed. Parks Victoria Human Resources will undertake a comprehensive assessment before making any decision on suitability for employment.

How to apply

Please follow the link below to complete the application form:

Fit2Work – Consent Form (PDF - 193 KB)

The form may only be completed using Adobe Reader version 8 or above. Before completing the form please ensure you have downloaded the latest version of this software from get.adobe.com/reader/

The Fit2Work Consent Form replaces the National Police Check application form. An improved online procedure now makes the processing of Police Checks faster.

Certifying your identification documents

You have two options:

  1. Obtain photocopies of the identification you have nominated on your application. Take the completed form, your original identification documents and photocopies of identification to a person listed on Page 5 of the instructions for certification and witnessing of your signature.
    or
  2. Obtain photocopies of the identification you have nominated on your application. Bring the completed form, your original identification documents and photocopies of identification to your interview at Parks Victoria where they will be certified by an authorised person.

After completing

Please ensure you have:

  • Double-checked all sections before signing if you have completed a hard copy form.
  • Left boxes blank where you are not required to complete part of a section or the section has already been completed for you.

Once the Consent Form is completed, please bring to your interview along with the relevant documentation.

No payment is necessary. Parks Victoria will pay the cost processing your application. Do not attach a cheque or money order.

For assistance or further information please contact Lisa Ellerton, Recruiter, on 13 1963.
