Knox City Council has a policy of Selecting for Excellence which means we are committed to ensuring that any selection process is one based on merit, genuine contestability and the objective comparison of all relevant information.
For each position there will be a position description attached which will outline to you what the roles and responsibilities of the position entail. Each advertisement will also have a contact name and number – if you have any questions about the position description or the role in general, which are not covered in the advertisement or the position description, we encourage you to contact the officer listed to discuss.
Within each position description there is a section called “Selection Criteria”. Each applicant is expected to address the selection criteria within their job application.
Shortly after the closing date a selection committee will review your application. Knox Council conducts interviews with short-listed candidates. If you are successful in obtaining an interview you will be contacted directly by telephone.
Positions advertised by Council attract a large number of qualified applicants. The process of reviewing applications, creating a short list and interviewing can often take up to four weeks.
