Key selection criteria are commonly used by Australian Government departments
Key selection criteria are primarily utilized in the public sector by government agencies at the local, state, and federal levels. Applicants who provide well-written and compelling responses to these criteria are often given priority consideration.
For example, many jobs advertised by the Australian Government are listed on the Australian Public Service website.
Therefore, it's essential to have professionally crafted responses that precisely address the employer's requirements and effectively demonstrate your suitability for the position.
We specialize in crafting customised responses to selection criteria for diverse industries, professions, and levels.
Here are some examples of jobs and industries that we've addressed the selection criteria for:
Government jobs - federal, state, and local levels
Education sector - teaching, administrative, and support staff
Healthcare sector - medical, nursing, and allied health roles
Law enforcement and emergency services - police, fire, and ambulance services

Corporate sector - executive, managerial, and specialist roles in areas such as finance, marketing, and human resources
Engineering and construction industries - roles such as project management, civil engineering, and architecture
Information technology - roles in software development, project management, and technical support.
These are just a few examples, but there are many other jobs and industries that use selection criteria in their recruitment process.
Here are a few sample responses that can give you an insight into the quality of our work
The ability to deliver intended results consistent with customer needs and defined quality expectations (including timelines), aligned with strategic goals and objectives.
As the Managing Director at Business Equity, I played a pivotal role in the start-up of the company. The company aimed to provide affordable accommodation to the community and easy access to educational institutions and medical facilities.
To achieve this objective, I needed to gauge outcomes in line with strategic goals and objectives, establish a network of external stakeholders and build relationships with them.
To accomplish these objectives, I developed a comprehensive strategy that involved negotiating with stakeholders and ensuring that the company's goals were aligned with the needs of the community. I took responsibility for overseeing the implementation of the strategy and making necessary adjustments along the way.
My efforts led to the successful establishment of a network of external stakeholders, which reinforced the company's ability to deliver affordable accommodation and access to educational institutions and medical facilities to the community.
I firmly believe that my ability to achieve results is rooted in my drive to perform and excel at necessary tasks. My track record of balancing quality and costs, providing exceptional customer service, and initiating procedures necessary to support broad customer service objectives and organizational approaches for service delivery are all testaments to my commitment to excellence. I remain personally accountable for the outcome of any endeavor I am involved in, and I prioritize tasks in order of importance and due date, spending time each morning planning out the day ahead.
In conclusion, I am confident that my track record of consistent results and strategic thinking make me a valuable asset for the advertised position. My ability to provide exceptional service delivery while building meaningful relationships with stakeholders and clients alike will enable me to excel in this role and drive meaningful results for the organization.
A demonstrated ability to negotiate persuasively and to successfully listen, understand and adapt to a range of audiences is required for this role, as well as appropriate qualifications.
Throughout my professional experience, I have worked in various environments and alongside a diverse range of individuals, demonstrating my ability to effectively communicate with different stakeholders. As a friendly, supportive, and respectful individual, I consistently strive to encourage and uplift others in all my interactions.
One specific example of this was during my time as a Program Coordinator at the Shorten Institute, where I successfully developed and maintained strong relationships with internal and external stakeholders. In this role, I facilitated regular meetings with key stakeholders, including Executive Directors, Learning Portfolio Managers, and Managing Directors, to negotiate and build partnerships that benefited both parties. Through these meetings, I was able to effectively communicate project updates, as well as offer and receive feedback on program goals, timelines, and deliverables.
My communication skills extend beyond relationship building, as I am confident in delivering information in a clear, concise, and articulate manner, whether it be through written or verbal communication. I have been recognized for my excellent presentation skills, having conducted training and seminars at the state, national, and district levels.
When communicating with others, I am able to adapt my language and delivery to ensure that the information is understood by the audience. For instance, during a recent presentation to a diverse group of stakeholders, I utilized various mediums, including visual aids and simplified language, to ensure that everyone understood the content being presented.
Furthermore, my interpersonal skills have been honed through my experience in conflict resolution and mediation. I am comfortable in negotiating with customers, suppliers, and government departments, and have successfully resolved conflicts and mediated disputes in various settings.
I am currently pursuing a Bachelor of Commerce in Management and Human Resources, where I am developing pertinent and transferable skills such as critical thinking, organizational skills, problem-solving, negotiation, and time management.

You can reuse your responses multiple times with just a minor tweak.
We'll keep your responses within the word limit
When addressing the key selection criteria, our responses are maximum half a page long.
We conduct extensive research by going through the position description and deciphering what the employer is looking for, as well as what is involved in the role. We try to incorporate keywords used in the job description and include it where appropriate when writing up each response.
Even in situations where the job description is not informative enough, we work around this by researching similar other roles.
We'll incorporate working examples
We aim to provide solid evidence of your aptitude and relevance to the key selection criteria by including at least 1 or 2 specific examples.
We follow the 'SAO' approach when writing the response. However, every response is going to be different. When incorporating an example into the response, we try to adjust and expand upon examples provided by you so that it outlines the "Situation"; "Action" and "Approach" that you took. Similar to the STAR technique in addressing selection criteria.
To ensure clear and concise communication, we structure each response with an introduction, body, and conclusion. We prioritize honesty and positivity, avoiding over- or under-exaggeration of your skills, capabilities, or experience.
We'll personalise and tailor your responses
We personalize and tailor each selection criteria based on your own experience, ensuring to tie it back to the position's responsibilities. Our approach includes using relevant keywords and providing concrete examples that accurately demonstrate your suitability for the role.
Your responses will be easy to read
Our aim is to ensure that your application letter stands out and captures the reader's attention, as they may have limited time to review each application. By crafting compelling responses to the required key selection criteria, we strive to motivate the reader to read on and learn more about your qualifications and experience.
It's important to find a selection criteria writer that you can trust.
