Non-Ongoing (Temporary) Employment Register Frequently Asked Questions
 



Beginning your application – tips for the first time applicants to the ABS

Your email address is our primary method of contact with you, so in many ways it is more important than your name. Ensure that this is correct, current, reliable and accessible. Some web based email systems can become 'full' quite quickly. Make sure you understand any limitations that may apply to your email account.

You will need to use the same email address you initially used to register for the ABS Careers site, to access your current applications. Also, any communication and forms we send you, will be to this email account.

If you have forgotten your password you can reset it via the login page. The ABS National Recruitment team will not be able to reset your password for you.

Save your application regularly as you proceed through the steps, as the site does “time-out” after a short while.
