To apply for a position with International Cargo Express it's important that you have a clear idea of your career progression, including how you wish to utilise your skills and experience in your next role.
There are two ways to make yourself known to us! The first is a general submission of your CV to our Head office or the relevant ICE branch manager. In this case, you become part of a "pool of candidates"! When we intend to recruit for a position we start a talent search against a vacant role. CVs in this pool are considered against our selection criteria. If your details are matched to the vacant role and reviewed for suitability we will talk to you before the role is advertised! The second way is to apply directly to an advertised opportunity and include a covering letter which demonstrates how and why you are suitable.
You are more likely to be successful in the recruitment process if you tell us how you fit the position you are applying for, i.e. in your covering letter.
We recommend you only apply for targeted positions for which you have suitable skills and experience.
Your CV is very important – it is like your Passport which should be up-to-date and current at all times to facilitate "travel" to your next career opportunity!
A CV should also "sell" and "market" you in an interesting and honest manner. A functional CV should highlight the skills and experience you have gained throughout your career to date. It may be helpful to consider the following tips to enhance your current CV:
To apply for a position you will need to follow the steps in the online application process. As part of this process, you'll be required to create a personalised profile. Click the 'Apply Online' link at the bottom of the advertised position to create or update your profile. When you have successfully submitted an application, you will receive a system generated confirmation email, letting you know we have received your application.
As we often receive a large number of applications for any given position, you may not hear from us again until two or three weeks after we receive your details, however we are conscious of progressing as quickly as possible and often can advise of your suitability or next steps before this.
If your application will not progress to the next stage, you will be advised in writing via email. If, after applying for a position, you have not heard from us within three weeks please contact us.
When we progress your application, you will be contacted by phone and informed of the next steps, which may include an initial telephone interview or face-to-face interview.
When you progress to the next stages, for some roles you may be required to participate in psychometric assessments and for all roles there will be reference checks, so please be prepared to provide at least two professional referees for us to contact.
These referees must ideally be people you have reported to in prior positions - or at least people who have working knowledge of your abilities and experience.
If you are successful in becoming the preferred candidate, you will be advised of the offer by telephone and promptly provided with a written employment agreement. The offer of employment is valid for a finite period of time and requires your acceptance by signature and its return to us.
