Addressing Key Selection Criteria 

Applicants must address the Key Selection Criteria contained in the position description/recruitment kit for each advertised vacancy. These criteria form the basis for shortlisting and selection. Adequately and succinctly addressing these criteria will improve your chances of gaining an interview.

Use each selection criterion as a heading and then write your response underneath. Make sure your answers are succinct and relevant. Keep the length of each response between one paragraph to half a page. You may want to use bullet points to keep things concise and focused. Please answer each Key Selection Criteria individually and do not join your responses together.

Email if you have any questions.
