How to apply for a position

Application Information

Indigo Shire Council (ISC) is an equal opportunity employer and applies merit-based selection techniques. Selection is based on the assessment of each application in relation to the Selection Criteria provided in the Position Description below.

The Position Description

Please read the PD - this is an outline of the nature and expected outcomes of the job. It will also include the knowledge and skills required to undertake the role.  Please keep in mind however that a PD is not a detailed record of every task and duty that may be required in the position.

Selection Criteria

The SC indicates the level of knowledge, skills, abilities and personal attributes that an individual needs in order to perform the duties of the position. ISC requires you to provide answers addressing each SC as part of your application.  Your SC responses will allow the selection panel to better assess your ability to meet the criteria of the position, and your SC answers will determine whether or not you are asked to attend an interview.  There are helpful websites and printed material which outline how to answer SC for government agencies – we suggest you research these.

Your Application should include:

  1. A covering letter
  2. An up-to-date resume, including the names and contact numbers of two referees (1 being your most recent manager/supervisor)

  3. A separate attachment outlining your experience against the selection criteria
