Applying for a position

To apply for a position, you must complete an Application Form on-line (preferred) or by downloading the Job Application Form and returning it with a covering letter, which introduces yourself and addresses the selection criteria as contained in the Duty Statement.  This is the most important part of your application.

If you have any queries regarding the position, please contact the officer nominated in the advertisement.

Please check the closing date of the position stated in the advertisement.  Late or Pro-forma applications will not be accepted.

Your application:

Your application should demonstrate how you meet all the essential selection criteria.  It is extremely important that you include information about your previous experience, skills, knowledge and qualifications that make you a suitable applicant.  The information you provide will be used by a selection panel to determine suitability for an interview.

What happens to my application once received?

If you have completed the application on-line you will receive a return email acknowledging receipt of your application.

Once applications have closed on a vacant position a selection panel will be formed from staff within our organisation. However, there are times when 'expert' assistance from outside the organisation is called upon. The selection panel will review all applications and determine those most suitable for an interview.  This process can take up to two weeks and you will only be contacted if you are short listed for an interview.

Interview requirements:

Applicants who are short listed for an interview will be required to obtain a current (less than 6 months old) National Police Certificate. Applicants who reach this stage and will be working with children will also be required to obtain a Working With Children Check.  This criteria will be listed within the Duty Statement and/or a representative from Senses will inform you during the interview process.

National Police Certificate:

A National Police Certificate lists your disclosable criminal history, recorded in any Australian police jurisdiction.  If you require this certificate, applications can be made through Senses Human Resources (preferred) or alternatively at selected Australia Post Offices.  Suitable identification must be provided. 

Working with Children Check:
All staff involved in child related work must have a current Working With Children’s Check. Application forms can be obtained from the Senses Human Resources or alternatively at selected Australia Post Offices.  Please note that Senses ("employer") must complete a section of the form prior to you submitting it.  Applications are lodged at an Australia Post Office once completed.

Please note: A National Police Certificate is not a substitute for a WWC or visa versa, both are required if the position requires individuals to working with people under the age of 18 yrs.
