After your initial approach to the Barnardos Recruitment team at abrs (Australian Barnardos Recruitment Service) you will receive the Position Description that also contains a section called essential and desirable criteria. Here you discover what Barnardos are looking for in a suitable candidate for the role.

It is essential to respond to each of the selection criteria, explaining how you have demonstrated the skill or competency required to be successful in the role. It is important to provide relevant examples from your work, study or community roles, and provide evidence to back up your examples detailing what you have done, how well you did it, what you achieved, and how it relates to the requirements of the role.

If you feel you would be a strong candidate for the role you will be required to submit your resume and selection criteria to the abrs recruiter who will assess your application against the selection criteria and other applicants for the role. If you are successful at this stage you will be invited in for interview with abrs. When all potential candidates have been interviewed abrs will select their final shortlist to meet with the line manager who will make the final recruitment decision.

As part of the recruitment phase Barnardos will run a series of probity checks. In NSW this will be a Working with Children Check and a Federal Police Check. In ACT additional checks include a valid Working With Vulnerable People card, Drivers History Check and a CYPS check. For candidates who have been residing in Australia for less than 5 years (including Australian Citizens) an International Police Check will be conducted.

If you have any questions regarding this process or would like to speak to one of the recruitment team please contact us on admin@abrs.net.au or 02 9218 2334.
