Hints and tips

We want to give you the best chance to succeed in your application and have provided some hints and tips to help you:

What should I include in my application?

Your application needs to demonstrate how your experience, skills, qualifications and knowledge meet the requirements of the role for which you are applying. 

To help you demonstrate this you may wish to include a separate statement, in addition to your resume, that addresses all of the key selection criteria listed in the position description.

What happens once I have submitted my application?

Once you have submitted your application it will be assessed against the selection criteria to see if you meet the requirements of the role.

Selection of staff at ACU is on the basis of merit in relation to the selection criteria so, in your application, you need to make sure that you've addressed all of the criteria for the role for which you are applying.

If your application has been successful, you will be notified and invited to interview. In the interview, the Selection Committee will ask you questions to assess your work experiences and qualifications against the selection criteria.

If you are successful in securing your chosen role, you will be contacted by telephone and then a formal letter of offer will be sent out to you.

Internal-only positions

To apply for internal-only positions, you must be a current ACU continuing, fixed term or casual staff member at the time of the advertisement.
