GMCT offers positions to people on the basis of merit. It’s important that you provide information showing us how your qualifications, experience, skills and abilities are matched to the position requirements as outlined in the Position Description. 

2.  Prepare a covering letter that:

  • addresses all key selection criteria

  • outlines your skills and employment experience relevant to the position you are applying for.

There is no right or wrong way to present your application; however, to be shortlisted you should address the key selection criteria. If you don’t you are unlikely to be considered for an interview.

3.  Attach a brief resume containing:

  • your full name, address, telephone number (daytime preferred)

  • work experience summary (include where you have worked, positions held, period of employment and brief details of duties performed)

  • other information you feel is relevant to the job you are applying for.

     Shortlisting and interviewing 

1.  Shortlisting

All positions are shortlisted and processed within two weeks of the closing date.

When there are a large number of applicants, only those that best meet requirements are contacted for an interview. Successful applicants are contacted after the 2 week processing period.

Our selection process is conducted using the principles of merit and equality. Everyone deserves an equal chance and a fair opportunity. We strive to be fair and consistent in what we do.

2.  Interviews

We’ll organise an interview (aiming to give at least two working days’ notice) and advise you of the date, time and venue. Make sure to let us know if you have special requirements.

First interview

This is our chance to really get to know you. You will usually meet the hiring manager and another team member and they’ll want to know all about your skills and experience and how they relate to GMCT.

Unsuccessful candidates are informed and provided with an opportunity for feedback.

Second interview

If the interview goes well we’ll organise a second interview to discuss your practical tasks and explore some new questions. You might also meet other team members or prospective stakeholders at this stage.

      Pre-employment checks

Reference checks

We’d like to speak with a previous manager to get a feel for what it’s like to work with you. Two professional referees are contacted to conduct reference checks.

Police check and pre-employment medical

A national pre-employment police check and medical examination is undertaken. Appointment is determined by outcomes listed on these checks and is subject to a satisfactory result.

A relevant international police check is required for anyone who has lived overseas for 12 months or more in the past 10 years.

      Offer

If you’re the best person for the role and we’re happy with everything so far, the next step is an offer for the role. 

Probationary period

EBA staff – 3 months, Non-EBA staff – 6 months

The probationary period is an opportunity for both parties to make sure that the match is successful. A demonstrated commitment to the GMCT Staff Code of Conduct, principles and values is essential, as is your ability to meet expected performance standards and competencies.

Entitlement to work in Australia

Successful candidates are required to provide evidence of entitlement to work in Australia (i.e. a current passport, birth certificate or citizenship certificate and photo ID).

GMCT has a no smoking in the workplace policy.
