Required Documents

  • Covering Letter: While advertisements do not require selection criteria to be individually addressed, your application will be evaluated against the essential skills, knowledge, experience and qualifications as listed in the Position Description. Therefore a covering letter (two pages max.) must be provided to briefly outline how you meet the essential criteria.
  • Curriculum Vitae/Resume: This should provide personal details (e.g. name, address, telephone number) relevant work history, education, training courses attended, qualifications and professional memberships.
  • Referees: You should include the names and contact numbers of at least two referees in your resume. These referees may be contacted to verify the information stated in your resume. We prefer that your referees should be a current manager/supervisor, however a manager/supervisor from a previous position may be used.
  • Formal Qualifications: The position description addresses whether formal qualifications are a requirement. If required, photocopies of your qualification(s) or academic records of current studies should be attached to your application. Please do not submit originals.
