Key Selection Criteria

Key selection criteria (KSC) are the skills, attributes, knowledge and qualifications that Council have defined as being essential for satisfying the requirements of the job. Responding to KSC is an important part of applying for a position with us and can be found in the position description and also in the APPLY NOW application form. 

You will need to write short statements that clearly show how your personal values, knowledge, skills and experience meet each of the criteria.

Include examples from other jobs, experience gained outside of work, or from your formal studies. These should be approximately one to three paragraphs in length and should be expressed concisely.
