Application tips

North Metropolitan Health Service (NMHS) employment decisions will meet the minimum standards of merit, equity and probity and be made in accordance with legislative requirements including:


The Advertised Vacancy Process

The advertised vacancy process consists of three stages:

  1. Recruitment: The period the position is advertised and people can apply for the vacancy.
  2. Selection: The selection panel assesses the extent to which an applicant has the skills, knowledge and abilities relevant to the position’s work related requirements and the outcomes sought by NMHS. The selection stage typically includes shortlisting and additional assessment (e.g. interview and referee reports).
  3. Appointment: Applicants are advised of the selection outcome and the recommended applicant is appointed.


Applying for an Advertised Vacancy

We typically receive many applications for a position. Therefore, it is important that you take the time to read and understand the position’s requirements and prepare an application that will assist the selection panel to accurately assess and compare your suitability for the position in contrast to other applicants.

The following tips are provided to assist you in preparing your application:

✔ Read the advertisement, the application instructions, and the Job Description Form (JDF) before writing your application.

✔ Consider the work related requirements (selection criteria) in the JDF. To be considered for assessment or appointment you must demonstrate you meet all the essential selection criteria and the appointment prerequisites.

✔ Tailor your application to the advertised job and NMHS’s Vision, Mission and Values as well as service delivery principles.

✔ Talk to the contact person named in the advertisement to clarify any elements of the job description or conditions that you are uncertain about before applying. Make sure you have read the JDF first.

✔ Include in your resume or curriculum vitae (CV):

  • Your relevant work history, qualifications, and education.
  • Brief description of your work experience, including the work situation, key responsibilities, tasks, results and achievements.
  • The name and contact details of at least 2 referees, ideally one who is a current or recent supervisor and can answer questions about your skills and abilities.

✔ Follow the application instructions.

  • If you are required to provide a separate statement addressing the work related requirements (selection criteria), your statement should demonstrate (preferably with examples) your competitive ability to meet the work related requirements.
  • If you are not required to provide a separate statement addressing the work related requirements (selection criteria), you can still opt to provide a separate statement along with your cover letter and resume or CV.

✔ Proof read your application and/or have someone proof read it for you.

  • Conduct a ‘Spelling and Grammar’ check.
  • Check your name is on the application.

✔ Ideally type your application. If you are submitting a handwritten application, make sure it is legible and in a dark blue / black ink to help with photocopying.

✔ Allow sufficient time to complete the application process online, as we cannot accept late applications. If you are mailing your application, allow enough time for it to be received by the closing date.

✔ Make sure you upload the correct supporting documentation prior to the closing date and time. Only include attachments that add value to demonstrating your ability to meet the criteria.

Good luck with your application.
