Notification Info:

It’s easy. Our Job Notification System contact method is via email however, employers may utilise SMS or phone contact.
This function allows employers to send out multiple online job offers through the ETA website to qualified staff that are waiting to receive their Job Offer Notification email. They can offer the one position to one or more candidates chosen from their favourites list. Selected staff are alerted via email of the casual vacancy. A Job Acceptance Response email will be sent back by the potential candidate. A Job Confirmation Response email will then be sent by the employer notifying the successful candidate that they have been awarded the position.
A standard template message will be forwarded by the employer to the selected candidate/s via the ETA website. The candidate/s will reply by writing “Job Acceptance Response” and their full name in the “subject” area of the reply email, eg. Job Acceptance Response – John Smith. The employer will continue the email chain and reply to the successful candidate with “Job Confirmation Response” and the name of their school/childcare centre in the “subject” area, eg. Job Confirmation Response – Australia Secondary College. This confirms the booking with the successful applicant.

Accepting a position:

The email chain is evidence that you have followed ETA’s process, therefore if any party does not uphold their obligation, a transcript exists to verify the sequence of events. This is essential if lodging a complaint with ETA’s administrative body.
You must reply to the employer via email by placing the following in the “Subject” area: Job Acceptance Response and your full name. eg. “Job Acceptance Response – John Smith”. Successful appointment of the position will be confirmed by the employer with a Job Confirmation Response email.
This means that the employer has accepted your expression of interest to work in their organisation; therefore you start employment at the organisation listed on the Job Confirmation Response email.
