HBF was created to bring the best healthcare within reach of ordinary Western Australians. Since then, generations of lives have been transformed, and even saved, thanks to the care they have received as HBF members.
Our vision is to be Australia’s most trusted and valued member-based organisation. With members nationwide, we are focused on new ways to grow our business and offer more to our members - determined to deliver for them in the moments that matter!

HBF's four core values shape our behaviours in everything we do - the way we relate to and treat our colleagues, our members and our community.
Members Are Our Reason: Members are the reason we exist and are at the heart of everything we do.
We Are Brave: We are brave in the way we will tackle the future. We’re driven by curiosity, and constantly look for better ways to work smarter, faster and more innovatively.
We Do the Right Thing: We are open and honest in everything we do. We do what is right, not what is easy and explain why we’re doing it.
We Work as One: We act as one HBF because we’re better together. We work not as individuals but as a team to achieve more.

Your application is our first introduction to who you are and is often the key decision maker on whether or not we offer you an interview. The first step in preparing your application is to read the job advertisement and accompanying position description and ensure you follow application instructions.
Your application should consist of a covering letter and resume. In addition, you may be asked to provide a separate written statement addressing the selection criteria as outlined in the position description.
It is important you clearly show a connection between the advertised role and your qualifications, experience and knowledge. We recommend you ask someone to proof read your application prior to submitting it as they may pick up any errors or make suggestions.
The covering letter is usually the first document our selection panel will read. Your covering letter should clearly state the position you are applying for and briefly outline your suitability and why you are interested in the role.
It should look professional, use positive and enthusiastic language, contain no spelling or grammar errors, and be tailored to the role. If possible, keep your covering letter to a single page.
Your resume must be current, concise and outline your personal details, qualifications, skills and work history. It’s best to keep it between two and four pages. Your resume should include:
You may be asked to prepare a separate document addressing the job selection criteria as part of your application. The required selection criteria is usually stated in the position description.
To be considered for a role, you should be able to meet all ‘essential selection criteria’. If there are many applicants who meet the essential criteria, the selection panel will also review your response to the ‘desirable selection criteria’.
If statements addressing the selection criteria are required we suggest you use each selection criteria as headings and write a brief paragraph using the SAO formula below.
The above formula should also be used when responding to an interview question.
To ensure you perform well in an interview you should be prepared. Here are some tips:
Prepare your interview responses and examples by reviewing the key selection criteria as outlined in the position description and content of the advertisement. Prepare for commonly asked questions such as: Why do you want this job? What are your strengths? What are your areas for development?
The first few minutes often set the tone for the rest of the interview, so make a good impression by being confident, yet relaxed.
