About ONQ.>

Corporate social responsibility.

Health & Wellbeing

We are always looking for ways to keep our team at their bright-eyed, bushy-tailed best! An abundance of free fruit and an industrial grade coffee machine help to keep us chipper when things get busy, and our fully equipped kitchen and easy access to the Queen Vic Market (just a block away) make for happy lunchtimes.
We are within easy strolling distance to the CBD and have a plethora of public transport choices at our door – or bike paths, if you’re one of those lycra-loving types!

Fun, Team Environment

We are lucky to have an inordinate amount of nice people working at ONQ and we make the most of that at every opportunity.
From lunches at the fabulous array of local cafes to the outrageously fun, social-club-devised events; it is no coincidence that members of Team ONQ are often found travelling in packs.

Learning & Development

We think it’s really important to stay excited about what you do and so are committed to providing ongoing training for our staff. We actively encourage our team to seek out educational opportunities wherever they may arise. Let us help you be a legend in your own lunchbox.

Growth & Opportunities

Whether you’re a big thinker, a brow furrower or an all-round artisan, ONQ offer opportunities in every shape, size and colour.

We currently operate on a national scale and our reach is growing as we speak (yes, right now!). A career at ONQ assures you the chance to make good on your aspirations; we’re just as passionate as you are about finding your niche.

Current jobs.

Work with us

At ONQ, we take our culture, and the personalities that create it, very seriously. We engage in a recruitment process that ensures that our core values are yours, too.

The recruitment process at ONQ follows these milestones:

1. Apply with us.

Send us your resume and cover letter and we’ll invite you to answer a short survey. It’s pretty quick and will give us an idea of what you’re looking for, how you think, and where you fit.

2. Talk with us.

Initially, you’ll speak to someone about your application on the phone. It’s a chat that takes about half an hour and is an initial assessment of who you are, where you’re coming from and will clarify the position and ONQ’s ideal candidate.

There’s an element of structure to this call, which will generally take a questionnaire format.

3. Show us.

We’re all specialists in our given field, and we want to make sure that you can do what you say you can! We ask Developers to create something, we ask Designers to design something, we pose client service problems to Client Services candidates, and maths questions that will make your toes curl to our Analysts.

This will happen in your own time, to an agreed deadline, and should be pretty straight forward because you’re already an expert, right?

4. Meet us.

After the telephone interview, and having demonstrated your abilities, we’ll invite you in to meet a few of us that you’ll be working with, and talk in more detail about your application and skill set.

This will typically take 1-2 hours, depending on the role you’re applying for, and is relatively casual in format. You’ll also meet our CEO (he’ll be the guy asking the tough questions).

During this part of the process, and depending on the role you’re applying for, you might meet up to half a dozen different people – all with their own questions.

5. Join us.

Assuming everything goes well, and having spoken with the references you’ve provided,  we will express our interest in you joining the ONQ team over the phone, and outline our offer. We’ll then reiterate that offer via email.

On your first day you’ll be partnered with a ‘buddy’ who will show you the ropes and help you settle in. Just like starting at a new school.

Sometimes interviews go well, but you might not fit exactly into the role we’re interviewing for. Usually we’ll be frank about this, and will discuss other opportunities, or keep you in mind for future roles. We’re hiring almost consistently.

Hints

Research us.
We’re going to ask you what you know about us, and why you want to work for us, so having answers to those questions will put you in good stead.
Write a cover letter.

This is the first thing we see, and no cover letter generally means no consideration.

Tell us about your interests.
We love to know about who we are hiring, not just what. Adding some detail about who you are allows us to skip the small talk (though we do quite enjoy that too).

Don’t be generic.
Creating a resume that’s a bullet point list of your skills and abilities won’t stand out. Tailor your application to the position that you’re applying for.

We offer a respectful, energetic, friendly and team-focused working environment, with a great opportunity to learn and excellent long-term career prospects. If you’re ready for a new epoch in your career, we’d love to hear from you.
