Online recruitment system

How do I submit my application?

Step 1 Upload your current resume

You can only upload one resume for all vacancies you are applying for, with a maximum file size of 1MB. You may edit your uploaded resume, however these changes will be visible against the position you are applying for as well as any position/s you have already applied for. No covering letter is required, as specific information will be sought about your current knowledge, skills, competence and experience in Step 3.

Step 2 Upload the applicable certificates

This demonstrates your ability to meet position requirements.

Step 3 Answer the Selection Criteria

Address criteria outlined in the position description in the fields provided. Your application is assessed against these and the caliber of other applicants. Please ensure you carefully consider your responses to the selection criteria. Applicants who don’t demonstrate they meet selection criteria may not proceed to interview. 

Step 4 Provide referee details

You need two referees. At least one must be a current supervisor or have been a current supervisor within the past 12 months. While you can only nominate two referees in the system, you can list more in your CV/resume. Note that convenors may refer to CV-listed referees if they choose. You can also nominate further referees at your interview. Please ensure that your referees are available during the recruitment period to be contacted and that they have agreed to be your referee.

Step 5, 6 & 7 Checks and declarations

You are required to complete declarations and consent to pre-employment screening checks relevant to the position.

Step 8 Print and sign the National Criminal Record Check form (PDF 94.1KB)

If you are requested to attend an interview this form must be printed, signed and taken to the interview.  In some cases you may also need to apply for a Working with Children Check - this will be noted in the job advertisement or information supplied to you.
