The selection process

Man with hands on desk

Council is an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) employer and our selection process is merit based.
 
Your application will be considered against the requirements of the position and taking into account your skills and experience. Put simply, Council will select the best person for the job!
 
Our selection process includes:

  • Shortlisting applications
  • Interview
  • Reference checking
  • Pre-employment health and functional assessment
  • Evidence of Right to Work in Australia
  • 'Working with Children' verification (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

Pre-employment checks are carried out for those interviewees who progress to the next stage of the recruitment process.

They include:

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

Notification of the outcome of your application
