The safety and wellbeing of our employees and potential employees are important to us. All external candidates will be interviewed over Zoom and we will not be conducting any face-to-face interviews in any of REA's Australian offices - with no exceptions. The reasons for this are not only to protect the health and safety of our people, but also to assure candidates that there is no expectation from REA to meet face-to-face. A virtual interview will not adversely impact your application. If you have any questions or concerns, this can be discussed through the screening process. ​

Please note we have two open vacancies and are open to applicants in both Melbourne and Sydney.
