Organisational Values

As part of this cultural journey, Councillors and staff set new organisation values. These are now the cornerstone of improved service delivery and are reflected in everything Council does. Do these values align with yours? Click here to learn more about Council’s organisational values and the new Culture Development Plan (CDP).

Preparing your Application

Your application should include the following information:

  • A completed Job Application Form (Application for Employment )
  • A separate attachment addressing the Selection Criteria
  • A current resume including three referees and their contact details
  • A cover letter (optional)

Addressing the Selection Criteria

All positions at Council require candidates to address the Selection Criteria. The Selection Criteria can be found on the last page of the position description.

Applications that do not address the Selection Criteria when required may be eliminated from the recruitment process.

The Selection Criteria sets out the skills, experience, qualifications and abilities that we are looking for in applicants for the role. This is an opportunity for you to demonstrate how you meet the requirements and to expand on your resume.

Responses to the Selection Criteria should be submitted as a separate document.

The most important aspect of responding to the Selection Criteria is to provide evidence of proof using relevant examples to support your claims.

A short, simple paragraph for each criterion is all that is required.

Shortlisting of applicants to attend an interview is based on how your skills, qualifications and knowledge match those required in the Position Description.

Sending your Application:

Employment applications can be submitted via email to: careers@centralcoast.tas.gov.au.

Ensure that you submit your application before the closing date, as late applications will not be accepted unless prior arrangements have been made.


All applicants will be treated with equity and courtesy and assessed against the same criteria for any given position, irrespective of individual attributes.
