The selection process

Career-700x336px.jpg

Council is an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) employer and we use a merit based approach to select the best person for the job.

 We appreciate the time and effort that goes into making a job application. All applications are considered against the requirements of the position and taking into account your skills and experience. In addition to the technical skills of the role, we are looking for people who share our values of trust, respect, integrity, optimism, and teamwork.

Our selection process may vary depending on the specific role, but in general it includes:

  • Shortlisting applications
  • Behavioural Interview
  • Assessment task (if needed)
  • Second Interview (if needed)
  • Reference checking
  • Pre-employment health and functional assessment
  • Evidence of Right to Work in Australia
  • Working with Children's Check (if relevant)
  • Check of qualifications
  • Notification of the outcome of your application

 Preparing for an interview

Interview questions are generally based around the selection criteria and are designed to help the selection panel assess how well you are suited to the position.
 
Most interview questions are designed to draw out examples of your previous experience and behaviours. This typically involves asking behavioural based questions which require you to provide examples of situations from your own experience, what action you took to resolve these situations and the results you achieved. You may also be required to complete a practical task.
 
At the end of your interview, you will have a chance to ask the panel any questions you may have relating to the position.

Pre-employment checks

These checks are carried out for the interviewees who progress to the next stage of the recruitment process.

Pre-employment checks include:

  • Referee checks
  • Pre-employment health assessment
  • Evidence of Right to Work in Australia
  • Working with Children's Check (if relevant)
  • Check of qualifications
  • Notification of the outcome of your application

Notification of the outcome of your application

All applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application via email by Human Resources.
