Job Application Process

Application Process

For consideration, applicants will need to provide the following

  • Resume
  • Cover Letter
  • Address Key Selection Criteria

And, for specialist family violence roles, the Minimum Qualifications Pathways and Equivalency Self-Assessment form must be completed. View further information on our Minimum Qualifications page here.

It is essential that the information you provide is clear, concise and most importantly relevant, so that the selection panel can readily assess your application.

To respond to the KSC you will need to address each criterion individually with a separate heading for each one, about a paragraph in size, summarising how your skills, qualifications, experience and personal attributes are relevant for that criteria.

It is always best to support your claims with evidence and avoid using opinions/statements such as 'I have excellent communication skills'. We suggest using the 'STAR' approach -

  • S - Situation - A brief outline of the situation or setting. Who was involved? What was your role?
  • T - Task - What did you do? What happened next?
  • A - Approach/Action - How did you do it?
  • R - Result - What was the outcome? What feedback did you receive?

Employment with CNV is subject to a satisfactory Working With Children clearance and criminal record history check prior to commencement of employment. For those who have lived overseas, there is the requirement to obtain an International Police check in addition to a National Police check.
