Some positions also may require additional steps which could include psychometric testing and practical exercises.

If you have any questions about this please email us at jobs@brookfieldrail.com.

What happens after I submit my application online?

Once you apply to a position, you will receive an e-mail notification confirming receipt of your application and resume.

We will assess all applications against the job description and requirements of the role and make a shortlist of candidates who best fit the requirements of the role. We will then make contact with these candidates to get further information and explain the rest of the process.

If your application is not successful, you will be notified and are encouraged to continue looking on the Current Opportunities page for positions that are more aligned with your experience.

What if I am interested in multiple positions? Can I apply for more than one position?

Yes. Please apply for each position of interest that matches your experience and the requirements as specified by the position. Your application will be considered against each job for which you apply.

Does Brookfield Rail offer vacation work for university students?

Yes, from time to time Brookfield Rail does offer opportunities for university students to come in to complete their work experience. At the time, we will advertise directly with universities for students to come forward for the opportunity to undertake work experience with Brookfield Rail.

You can also register your interest by sending your CV and a cover letter which outlines your area of study to jobs@brookfieldrail.com.

What do I do if I am having problems with the online recruitment system and am not able to register my application for a position?

The main reason this happens is that people often forget their password. You can go through the process of retrieving or resetting your password through the system.
