Preliminary step: It is strongly recommended that you take action now to obtain a copy or copies of your driving history through the relevant local motor registry or Road Traffic Authority.

Step 1 Application:
• applicants complete and submit an online application;
• resumes and any other relevant documentation are to be uploaded to the application form and submitted before the closing time; and
• once your application has been submitted you will receive an automated email confirming receipt of the application with instructions on how to access the AFP Employment Suitability Questionnaire.

Step 2 AFP Employment Suitability Questionnaire (ESQ):
The ESQ is the tool in which applicant’s character is assessed against the employment character standards.
Following the instructions contained in the email from AFP Recruitment confirming receipt of your application, the ESQ must be completed and submitted within 7 calendar days after the closing date of the applications.



Traffic History:
All applicants are required to obtain a copy of their Traffic History. If you have resided in different states or territories, you must supply a traffic history from each state or territory.
