How do I apply for a job with Express Couriers?
You can use our job search facility on the site to apply online for current vacancies. If there are no current vacancies that meet your requirements, you can register your details and create a profile for yourself and attach your CV. Your profile and CV will be stored in our database and you can be emailed any time a job vacancy occurs that matches your preferences.

How do I arrange notifications of new job vacancies?
To receive notifications of job vacancies, you need to be registered. Once registered you can set up Job Alerts as follows: log in to your Careers account and click on the My Profile link, then click on the Job Alerts link. Job Alerts allow you to receive email alerts for jobs matching your selected criteria. To set these up, click on Job Alerts and fill in the details.

What do I need to include in my job application?
When you apply online you need to ensure that you complete all the fields and attach a copy of your CV; you can include a cover letter if you wish. If there is a questionnaire attached to the job application, you need to ensure that you complete this too.

You must also be able to provide a copy of your entitlement to work in New Zealand which we will ask you to provide if you get to offer stage. We are unable to offer a position to anyone without sighting this. If you are a NZ citizen you can provide either an NZ passport (this can be expired by up to two years) or NZ birth certificate and supplementary photo evidence. If you are a non NZ citizen you will need to provide your foreign passport and evidence of residency or appropriate work visa.

Can I apply for more than one job at a time?
Yes. You’re welcome to apply for any jobs that you believe match your skills and career goals.

What happens after I have applied?
Once you’ve submitted your online application, we’ll send you an email or a letter confirming we’ve received it. The recruiter responsible for each job you apply for will assess your skills and experience and let you know how you’ve got on. If there is a closing date for the position you will likely be contacted once the advert has closed. If you’re not successful, we can keep your details in our database and contact you if a future position matches your skills.

What do I do if I have forgotten my Careers username and/or pasword?
Click on the Forgot Password link on the login page and enter the email address that you used when you set up your Careers registration. Your username and password will be emailed to that address.

How do I reset my expiry date when my careers profile is about to expire?
Login to your Careers account then click on My Profile. Then click on Reset Expiry Date to extend your profile for another three months.
