Tips for your application

To apply for a role you'll need to submit a cover letter and resume. You may also be asked to provide a response to the key selection criteria.

Cover letter

Your cover letter should be no longer than one page in length and provide an overview of your skills and experience. This letter explains why you are interested in the position and the reasons why we should hire you.

  • has dot points to separate skills gained through past experience
  • has headings and sub-headings to clearly separate different areas such as employment history (including month and year of employment), skills, knowledge and abilities
  • has page numbers so we know if pages are missing or out of order
  • is two to four pages long
  • is relevant and current.

Interviews

Following the closing date for each position, the hiring manager reviews all applications and then draws up a short-list up usually within two (2) weeks. 

If you're shortlisted for an interview, we'll contact you by phone.

Our job interviews are conducted by a panel of 2 to 3 people and follow a structured format. All applicants are asked the same questions, with follow-up questions dependent on responses.

During the interview, we'll also let you know about any pre-employment checks we may need to do if you're one of the preferred candidates, such as:

  • medical
  • working with children
  • police
  • right to work in Australia.

We recognise the benefits of a diverse workforce at Boroondara and promote equity of access to employment opportunities. If you require any additional support or adjustments for interview arrangements, just let us know in advance.

Successful candidates

If your interview is successful, we'll conduct reference and any other relevant pre-employment checks.

If you're then selected for a position, you'll receive a letter of offer from our online recruitment system and a welcome pack in the mail.

Unsuccessful candidates

If you're not shortlisted for an interview, you'll receive an email to let you know that your application has been unsuccessful. However, we encourage you to keep an eye out for jobs that might be of interest and to apply for other roles that you may be suitable for.

Good luck with your application!
