Applying for the Position

IMPORTANT Information Guide for Job Applicants
Selection is based on the assessment of each applicant in relation to the selection criteria identified in
the Position Description for the advertised vacancy. Therefore, write your application so that the
selection panel can assess your capabilities against each of the selection criteria. A letter and/or
resume on its own are generally not sufficient.

Whilst there is no set format for your application, the following is a general guide on what should be
included:

    1. Covering Letter to support your application
       Letter introducing yourself and advising what you are attaching to support your application.

    2. Statement which addresses selection criteria

        You should concisely and adequately illustrate how you meet each criterion.
         Compile a 'Statement Addressing Criteria', list each of the criteria and write a paragraph
        providing examples of how you meet the criteria. You may also include transferable
        knowledge, skills or abilities in areas relevant to the selection criteria that you have developed
        outside the workplace as evidence that you meet selection criteria, eg. A leadership role in a
        volunteer organisation.

     Note that applications which do not adequately address all the necessary selection criteria
                  may not be considered further and may miss out on an interview

    3. Resume
       Include a resume with correct information (full name, address, telephone numbers and email
       address) and a summary of your work experience detailing where you have worked, positions
       held, period of employment and brief details of duties performed.

    4. At least two work related referees
        In your resume include details of at least two people who can be contacted who can provide
       information about how you meet the selection criteria. Provide their names, position titles,
       addresses, telephone numbers and email address. As a matter of courtesy you should advise
       the people you have nominated as your referees that they may receive a call from a prospective
       employer.

    5. Give complete and relevant information
       Your application is a tool to sell your skills and abilities. It is the first stage in the selection
       process. It should be well presented and supply such detail as is necessary to fully explain your
       capabilities and experience. Do not simply state that you meet the requirements of the
       selection criteria. Give examples that demonstrate how you meet each criterion ie. numbers of
       staff supervised, examples of suggestions which have been implemented, etc.

    6. Be concise
       Avoid being long-winded, overstating your case or exaggerating your abilities.

    7. Application should be typed.
       It is preferred if your application is typed, single sided and stapled in the top left hand corner.
       There is no need to insert your application into a plastic presentation folder.
