Application Process

Application Process

Hello and thanks for considering a role with us. We work hard to ensure that our selection process is as transparent, fair, thorough and straightforward as possible. This process is described below.
 
Further INFormation on the role
Every time we advertise a role we also provide you with the name of someone that you can contact to seek clarification on details about the role. 
 
completing a formal application
Once you've decided to formally apply for a role you'll need to complete and submit an electronic Application form, along with a cover letter addressing the key selection criteria and your resume. Some of the questions on the Application will require some careful time and thought. It's important that we ask these questions because your answers will provide us with some very helpful insights into you as a candidate. You'll also be required to include certified copies of your academic transcripts and qualifications.
 
Receipt of application
Once we receive your application, and after the closing date has past, we'll consider it in light of the published experience, qualification and skills requirements of the role. Typically, as a candidate you won't have to wait too long to hear back from us on the progress of your application.  
 
Interviews
When you're invited to interview you should expect to meet with a small panel of interviewers. We use panel interviews because we find them to be an efficient and thorough way of helping to assess candidate suitability. In most cases, a second interview will also be required for our preferred candidates. For roles reporting directly to the Principal, an interview with a panel of School Board Members will also be part of the selection process.

During interview we'll ask you a series of questions that will span a wide range of areas including your work history, your work performance & achievements, your Christian beliefs, your work style and what you feel are your key capabilities and development areas. .
 
Finalisation and offer
Once the full interview process is complete then, as the final preferred candidate, we'll arrange to speak with your work and personal references. We'll only ever contact your referees when you authorise us to do so. At this stage, and only as the preferred candidate, you'll also be required to submit to a NSW Government Working with Children check for verification before employment commences..

In preparation for your interview we encourage you to read through the important documents on our suggested readings page.
