Selection Criteria
Writing Service

Public service and non-government selection criteria which positions you as the best candidate.

We write brilliant, detailed responses with carefully selected examples from your experience.

Our key selection criteria responses include:

  • Structured using STAR, CAR or SOAR
  • A focus on brevity. No excess content or 'fluff'
  • Responses addressed as per Work Capability and Band levels
  • Adherence to business communication conventions
  • Carefully selected examples from your experience
  • Awareness of your state and federal requirements
  • Research into legislation and methodology specific to your application
  • Unlimited revisions

How We Write Your Selection Criteria

Writing selection criteria is all about adopting a systemic approach to the information gathering stage, accurately judging and selecting the best examples and then fleshing out structured responses which address each component of the question.

This means that regardless of your industry, the approach is always the same.

Over time we are seeing more selection criteria with requirements such as:

  • 1 page statement of claims
  • 1000 word statement of claims
  • Address the major duties
  • One page pitch

These are less straight forward, but the principle is the same. Develop the responses well, avoid the fluff and emphasise your approach.

Working closely off the position description and within the application requirements, we develop simple questions for you to answer either over the phone or through email (dependent on how you prefer to respond), which we use to develop the STAR, CAR or SOAR responses from.

For complex selection criteria responses we perform research into your industry, the company/organisation you are applying to and gain a comprehensive understanding of the responses required.

We have excellent understanding of the Capability Development Framework, the APS Work Levels and the general expectations per role and field.

Case studies

Nursing

Jessica had previously worked as an Enrolled Nurse (EN) before undertaking her Bachelor in Nursing. Applying for graduate roles nation wide, the selection criteria questions generally pertained to interpersonal skills, continuous improvement initiatives, hygiene and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), patient-centred care, communication and collaboration within the multi-disciplinary environment. We worked with her to gather examples from her EN experience where she had assisted senior members in the clinical environment, adapted her approach to provide the best care to her patient and identified improvements and hazards to the workplace. We included the Nursing and Midwifery Board legislation, Privacy Act 1988 and focused on brevity of responses.
Jess now works in Perth as a Graduate Nurse.

Executive Level

Adam was a property development and relationship manager with a private enterprise that frequently worked alongside government. He possessed extensive achievements and consistent professional membership involvement. He was applying for a challenging Band 8 state government role in public property management. To develop the selection criteria we went over the major duties, discussed major infrastructure projects that he had delivered and we developed each response with the approach and result clearly outlined, including industry terminology. We focused on experiences that could clearly develop innovation aligning his experiences with the proposed challenges of the role. Congrats on the role Adam!

Accountant

Shoan is an accounting professional, facing increasingly tough competition to gain a role. He had his CPA, Masters of Professional Accounting and had completed a professional year. Applying as a Finance Officer with the state service, we focused on examples that were client-centric, demonstrated a sound approach to challenges and could demonstrate an ethical approach. Fundamental to success within the state government is the ability to communicate and adapt communication contextually, to which we carefully selected a time he had worked with a major stakeholder through a challenge in which he had to negotiate. All the best with the new job Shoan.
