Phone interview & confirmation

After reviewing your application, we may call you for a quick chat to find out a little more about you, further explore your motivations, career aspirations, skills and experience and how they match the role you have applied for. This is also your opportunity to ask any questions to make sure this is the right role for you.

If the phone interview is successful, a member of our support services team will call to lock in a panel interview time with you.

Panel interview

If you are invited to attend a face-to-face panel interview, you will meet the Hiring Manager and other members of the team. They will provide you with an overview of the service and what the role involves. During the interview, you will discuss your career history, skills, experience and ability to carry out the role.

We want to get a sense for how we’d work together, so explaining your thinking through case studies and asking questions are a key part of the interview.

Employment checks

If you are still being considered for the role following interview, you will be invited to share the contact details of two professional referees. They should be people you have recently reported to in a work environment. They should not be friends, colleagues or associates. Please check that your referees are comfortable in providing a reference for you before providing us with their details.


All employees at Sonder need to supply a Working with Children Check. Depending on the nature of the job you are applying for, additional checks and clearances may be required (this will be specified in the job description).

Offer of employment
