Applying for a Position
Appointments to positions with SWOP are based on merit. This means that the applicant who is judged to be the most capable of carrying out the duties of the position will be offered the job. The decision to appoint is based on the applicant’s written application, performance at interview, referees check, Criminal Record Check and/or Working with Children Check. Please note that the records checks will only be required on offer of employment and will only be conducted at the end of the recruitment process if you have been identified as the successful candidate and consented to the checks.
The Job Advertisement
The job advertisement and the position description provide the basis for the selection process as they specify precisely the selection criteria, competencies and experience needed to satisfactorily perform the duties of the position.
Preparing an Application
Your written application must stand on its merits. Do not assume that the selection panel knows what you have achieved in the past. If you do not demonstrate how you meet the criteria for the position you will not be called for an interview.
The completeness and relevance of your application will determine whether or not you are called for an interview. Where a large number of applicants meet the essential and desirable requirements, only those applicants who most strongly meet the requirements will be selected for interview.
There are two (2) steps to preparing an application:
1. Address all of the “Selection Criteria” as outlined in the following position description. You are required to state how your skills, knowledge, experience and qualifications relate to the position. To do this, address each criterion separately. You should use statements with examples that clearly demonstrate your competency in a particular area. Applicants who fail to demonstrate that they meet the requirements of the position will not be invited to attend an interview.
2. Attach an updated copy of your resume, including the contact details of three referees, one of which may be a personal referee.
Please note that it is not necessary to send in copies of your qualifications, references or awards at this time.
