It depends where you work, for standard office based work hours are generally 8-9am to 4-6pm. it really depends on the type of work you do and what your manager needs/wants. Any flexibility is at the discretion and approval of your manager.

Make sure you look up how to respond to selection criteria, most processes will require this. Also make sure you don't knock yourself out by forgetting to include something - attention to detail is important. Some areas are getting more creative with the recruitment processes with pitches and other processes. if you are unsure talk to the contact officer.
