How To Apply?

Step 1: Advertisement and key selection criteria

Vacancies have a unique position number or job reference that you need to quote in your application. The job details and position description outline the responsibilities and the key selection criteria you must respond to.

Step 2: Applications close

You must submit your application by the closing date shown in the advertisement. Applications can be submitted online. Go to current vacancies on this website, select the position, scroll down, fill in the form and apply. Online applications are acknowledged, via email, when received. We also accept applications in hard copy form, but would prefer to receive them electronically. If you wish to apply via e-mail, fax or through the post, please contact the person listed in the advertisement.

Step 3: Assessment of applicants

The received applications are then assessed against the capability requirements and key selection criteria, then ranked and short-listed for interview by the manager and a selection panel. Short-listed applicants are invited for interview and questions are asked that test the person against the selection criteria. Behavioural interviewing techniques, ability tests, as well as written and oral tests or other assessments, may also be used in this part of the job application process. Referees may also be contacted after interview. Selection is on the basis of merit.

Step 4: Job offer made

The panel prepares a selection report, which outlines the process followed, and makes a recommendation as to the most suitable applicant. This report needs to demonstrate that the selection process has been fair and reasonable, and that selection is on merit. The appointment is then authorised by a senior employee or delegate. Once salary, terms and conditions are negotiated an agreed start date is decided, and there is usually a probation period to be served before the appointment is finally confirmed. Unsuccessful applicants are advised of the selection process outcomes after the successful applicant has been confirmed.
