  • Please direct any queries to recruitment@genwest.org.au.
  • Answer each key selection criteria separately. Please note that your response doesn’t have to be too long. A few sentences (or up to 300 words) is enough.
  • Take a look at each key selection criteria and write a few sentences about why you think you are (or would be) good at the activity described.
  • Write a few more sentences to give an example of how you have demonstrated this ability in the past. You can consider skills and experiences you have gained through work, school/study or in your day-to-day life.
  • It is important to notice that the key selection criteria are asking about ability, not just experience, so even if you haven’t done exactly what is described, you can tell us why you think you would be good at that activity.
  • For the question about GenWest’s values (key selection criteria 1) take a look at the explanation of our values at the top the position description. You can write what you think about all of them or decide which one you relate to the most and let us know why.
