    Our Hiring Process

    STEP 1 : Application

    Found a job you want to apply for? Carefully review the job advertisement and position description to determine if the role is right for you.

    The position description will help you understand the responsibilities and tasks required in the job.

    Your application must include a cover letter. A Cover letter is a brief introduction about yourself and your relevant skills, qualifications and experience.

    Resume

    Selection criteria

    To be considered for the job, you will need to respond to each of the essential & desirable criteria which are shown in the position description. You will need to write at least one to two paragraphs explaining how you have demonstrated the particular criteria being asked for.

    It is important to provide evidence to back up your claims. Use actual examples of what you have done, how well you did it, what you achieved, and how it relates to the requirements of the job you are applying for.

    The STAR technique can help you form your answer.

    • Situation: Must be specific and actual. It is important that the example provided lets the Selection Committee know ‘why’ the action took place. The situations or tasks from which actions result are often created by changes in work procedures, job responsibilities, etc.
    • Task: The purpose of the task must be realistic and specific.
    • Action: The “what” and “how”. Actions are what people say and do. They are steps taken in completing a task, how someone lays out work or interacts with others.
    • Result: Outcome or what happened as a result of the action. It is essential that the Selection Committee understand whether the ‘actions’ taken were effective in changing or somehow effecting the identified situation.
