The Shire, as a part of its vision, is committed to providing Equal Employment Opportunities.

All current vacancies are listed in this area as well as advertised in the press.  Application information can be downloaded by clicking on the position you are interested in. Alternatively you can contact the person who is listed for the vacancy for further information.

Position Description

The position description provides you with information about the job, including the purpose of the position, reporting relationships, duties/responsibilities, delegations/accountability and a list of key skills, knowledge and abilities required to perform the position. This is for your information only, and whilst all selection criteria may be assessed during the recruitment process, applicants are advised that they ONLY need to address the requested criteria listed in the application form.

Application form and how to respond to selection criteria

An Application form must be completed, signed and submitted with your application.  Applicants must respond to all of the key selection criterion required within the application form in order to be considered for the role.

The selection criteria are those skills, abilities, experience, knowledge and qualifications defined in the Position Description as important to ensure the functions of the position are effectively and efficiently performed.  The selection criterion is the basis for which a selection panel shortlists and selects which applicants are to be interviewed.

Applicants must respond to the criterion requested in the application form.  Wherever possible provide examples of your work performance in your responses to the selection criteria, do not simply state that you meet the selection criteria.  In order to adequately address each selection criterion, and therefore increase your chances of securing an interview, it is suggested applicants follow the S.A.O (Situation, Action, Outcome) guideline in each specific criteria. That is, describe a Situation that you have experienced (relevant to the selection criteria), then write about the Action you performed to address this requirement and then describe the Outcome of what you achieved as a result of your action and involvement.

As it is not always possible to interview all applicants, only those who best meet the selection criteria will be short listed for an interview.  If your application does not address each of the selection criteria required, it is unlikely that you will be short listed for an interview.

What to include in your application

Please be aware for your application to be considered, ALL of the following documentation must be submitted:

  • Application for Employment with selection criteria addressed
  • Cover letter
  • Resume
  • Copies of relevant qualifications
