Addressing Selection Criteria
All positions advertised will include selection criteria consisting of core and position specific competencies. These competencies describe the behaviours, motivations, experiences and knowledge that we, as an organisation, believe employees need to demonstrate to be successful in that position.
When responding to the selection criteria use the same method that you would in an interview, providing examples of how your current/past skills and experience meet that criteria by:
- describing the situation/task
- describing your level of involvement in that situation/task
- describing the outcome/result
We receive a large number of applications with all applications being assessed based on who ‘best’ meets the selection criteria and therefore there may be times where candidates do meet the selection criteria but are not invited for an interview.
