Information for applicants

It is in your interest to read the requirements for the application process – this could mean writing a ‘sales pitch’ or submitting ‘statements of claims’ against the selection criteria. Selection criteria are standards that measure a candidates abilities, skills and knowledge and are contained within the duty statement or job description.

Both the selection criteria and duty statement outline the minimum requirements necessary to do a job and are collectively called the selection documentation. These documents can be downloaded from this site along with other information to guide you in developing your application.

If your application does not address the requirements you may not get an interview as this is the basis for shortlisting applicants.

Please download the ‘Candidate information pack’ (see below) and the ‘Personal particulars form’ in Word for further information.

Please attach all application documents in one email to our Recruitment Officer.

Acknowledgement of applications

We do not acknowledge applications as a general rule but we would like to thank you for your interest in ACIAR.

Due to the high number of applications received by ACIAR, the Committee are unable to provide individual feedback to those candidates not selected for interview. The agency’s selection processes are governed by the requirements of the Public Service Act 1999. Candidates are judged individually against the relevant selection criteria as well as comparatively against other candidates for the position. The selection committee (usually three members) will determine applicants’ comparative merit for the position based on their application, performance at interview and comments from referees.

ACIAR’s recruitment process adheres to the APS values, ASPC recruitment and selection guidelines and all relevant legislation.

Applying for jobs within the Australian Public Service can be different from other types of job application processes, if you need advice on how to apply for jobs in the Australian Government try JobAccess or APS Jobs.
