Guidelines for Applicants

APPLYING FOR THE POSITION

You need to apply in writing for the position. It is most important to prepare a good
application as it will be used to decide whether you proceed to interview. A good
application shows why you are the best person for the job and how your skills,
knowledge and experience meet the selection criteria.

Application must contain:

  • A covering letter of application
  • Telephone number(s) for contact purposes
  • Your résumé (curriculum vitae) including referee contact details
  • Your claims against the Functional Capabilities

NOTE: You should be available for interview as soon as the vacancy closes. If you
know that you will be unavailable, please note this on your application and if
possible, provide alternate contact details.

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

To be eligible to work in Australia you must provide a copy of either a birth
certificate, citizenship certificate, or a passport and a copy of a current driver’s
license with your application. If you are not eligible to work in Australia at the time
of applying for the advertised vacancy, it is in your interests to advise (in your
application) whether you have applied for Australian Citizenship or working visa and
the expected timeframe for recommendation.

THE ROLE OF THE SELECTION COMMITTEE

The selection process will be undertaken by a small panel, usually consisting of
three members. Each selection panel is convened with care to ensure that it has
the necessary expertise to make a sound decision in a fair and impartial way.
Collectively, the committee will have an understanding of the vacancy and its role
and will be responsible for the integrity of the final selection decision.

The Committee will be responsible for shortlisting, assessing the applicant which
may include questions at interview, skill testing or scenario problem solving or a
mixture contacting referees and making a recommendation of appointment to the
relevant delegate.

The most suitable applicants (short listed from their written application) will be
called for an interview where each candidate’s strengths and weaknesses in
relation to the selection criteria are further assessed. The purpose of the interview
is to provide the applicant with the opportunity to expand on information presented
in their application and to enable the panel to gather further data for the
assessment process.

The body of the interview will be structured so that each interviewee is provided
with the same assessment process and at the interview you will be given the
opportunity to ask questions about the position. The assessment offer candidates
the chance to demonstrate their understanding of the position and its duties.

At this stage you may also present information to the committee which you feel
assists your application.

If you are offered an interview and you have any special needs (for example,
wheelchair access to the building, interpreter for hearing impaired persons) you
should inform the person who contacts you
You will be advised by letter or email if you have not progressed further in the
selection process after interview.
You have the opportunity to contact the Chair of the panel to receive feedback on
your application and/or interview. This feedback will assist you with future
applications and interviews.

Please note that unsuccessful applications and recruitment documentation will be
retained for 12 months and then destroyed. Recruitment documentation for
successful candidates will form part of your personnel file.

REFEREE REPORTS

Comments will be sought from your nominated referees to determine your ability or
potential to fulfil the selection criteria and the requirements of the job you have
applied for. Referees will be required to confine their comments to their direct
knowledge of you. It is therefore important that you nominate referees who are able
to discuss your suitability in relation to the selection criteria.

Consider providing them with a copy of the position description so that they are
prepared to provide relevant information to the selection committee. Written referee
reports are not required.

MEDICAL ASSESSMENT

You will be required to undertake a medical assessment at Council’s cost if the
selection panel thinks you should progress in the selection process. The results of
the medical will assist Council to determine if you are able to meet the inherent
requirements of the position you have applied for. Pre-employment medical reports
will be kept securely on file.
