The information below was updated 19 June 2018.

EnergyAustralia is among a number of businesses in Australia that uses the PageUp platform for recruitment.

We were recently alerted to unusual activity on PageUp's systems and immediately suspended our use of the platform for collection of candidate information.

A detailed statement from PageUp regarding the incident can be found here.

We have maintained close contact with PageUp since being advised of this issue. While there is currently no evidence that candidates for roles at EnergyAustralia have had their personal information extracted from PageUp’s systems, we are continuing to monitor this issue. We are also encouraging candidates for roles at EnergyAustralia after 30 September 2013 to be alert to any potential misuse of their personal information, as an additional precaution.

Based on advice about the current state of PageUp's systems and the steps it has taken to secure candidate information and prevent similar incidents occurring in the future, EnergyAustralia has recommenced the use of PageUp effective 18 June 2018.

If you are interested in an available role at EnergyAustralia but concerned about submitting your details via PageUp, please contact our Careers team directly by emailing careers@energyaustralia.com.au.
