Thank you for your interest in and considering the Northern Midlands Council for your next career move.

We have a range of exciting career opportunities available, from office-based positions to hands-on, operational outdoor opportunities. Some of which require qualifications and previous experience and others that are entry level positions.

The following information is designed to help you understand our selection process, so that you can put your best case forward for our consideration.

All applications for employment must be clear and concise as this is the first step in demonstrating your skills, qualifications, and experience for the advertised vacancy. Your application should include a current resume and a cover letter that introduces yourself and details your reasons for applying for the position. Your cover letter should also address the criteria outlined in the “About You” section of the specific advertisement which demonstrates your ability to meet the essential requirements of the position.

Merit based selection techniques and suitability for the position are applied throughout the selection process. This simply means that the merit of each applicant is assessed against the position description, the written application, selection criteria response and performance at interview. The successful applicant is the one who through this process is deemed to be most suitable for the position and who best demonstrates their ability to be able to fulfill the requirements of the role.

To ensure a fair and equitable process, all applications for employment must be received via the website as specified in the specific advertisement for the role for which you are applying. Applications received via alternate methods will not be considered. As part of your application, all candidates are asked a set of questions specific to the role and that will assist us with the assessment process.

All roles on the Seek website will be advertised for a minimum period of 2 weeks. Review of applications will begin after 2 weeks and reviews will continue as applications are received until the position is filled. Council may proceed with interviews at any stage during the process. Applicants are encouraged to submit applications promptly.

The Northern Midlands Council is an equal opportunity employer, and we encourage all applicants to apply, regardless of gender, race, colour, nationality, age, religion, or disability.

If you have any questions, please contact the People and Culture Business Partner on 03 6397 7303, otherwise we look forward to receiving your application.
