Visa requirements

We have a responsibility to ensure that we only employ legal workers, so we have a specific recruitment protocol that we follow at all times. You should double-check that you're eligible to be employed by us before you start your application process.

BT Financial Group's recruitment protocol

We can only employ you if you are:

  • An Australian citizen; or

  • A permanent resident; or

  • A non-citizen in Australia on a valid visa that allows you to work - this includes New Zealand citizens

If you're a non-citizen on a valid visa with no work restrictions, we can offer a maximum term contract that falls within the validity period of your visa.

There are many different types of temporary visas, but only some will mean that we can hire you. Have a look below to find out if you're eligible to be employed by us. This list isn't exhaustive, so call us on 1300 130 548 or email a Talent Acquisition Consultant if you have any questions.
