Information for all applicants
These notes are provided to assist you in preparing your application and to help the selection panel assess your application and suitability for the role. Further information regarding Leeton Shire Council can be obtained from Council’s website www.leeton.nsw.gov.au.
It is essential that the information you provide is clear, concise and most importantly relevant, so that the selection panel can readily assess your claim for the position. It is up to you to demonstrate to the panel that you understand the requirements of the position and that you have the necessary knowledge, experience and qualifications to successfully carry out the duties of the position. Here it must be noted that it is impossible to interview all applicants and therefore only those who can best demonstrate their capability according to the criteria will be short listed for interview.
CURRICULUM VITAE / RESUMÉ
A brief summary of your relevant personal particulars, education (and qualifications) as well as your employment history should be attached to your application. Information provided should preferably relate to the position.
REFEREES AND REFERENCES
While the names of referees may have been asked for in the advertisement, these need not necessarily be supported by written references at the time of sending your application. However, if you choose to enclose written references, copies will suffice at the time subject to sighting originals at a later date. It is recommended that you advise your referees that you have nominated them as the Council may wish to contact them at a later date. The referees you nominate should be able to comment on your recent work experience.
It is recommended that only copies of supporting documents be enclosed with your application so as to avoid loss or damage to originals. Nonetheless, the Council may ask to sight the originals at a later time.
The Council is pleased to accept all applications for the position and does not favour hand written applications over typed applications, or vice versa. However, all applications should be neat and legible for ease of reading by the selection panel.
In fairness to all applicants, late applications cannot be received but the Council will accept late applications when consent to such a request has been given by the Human Resources Manager. However, such permission must be sought before the closing date for applications.
