Application Instructions:

Please note there has been a change in the DHS screening requirements as of 1 July 2019 which are outlined below.

Screening

Consideration for an offer of employment in the South Australian Public Sector is in part dependent upon a National Police Check, also known as a National Police Certificate.

If you are new to the department and are invited to an interview, you will be required to produce a National Police Check, which has been issued within six months of your application for the role. National Police Checks can be applied for via the South Australia Police or through an Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission accredited body.

If the role you are applying for also requires an Employment-related Screening Check, you will be required to undergo such assessment as is advised by DHS, including periodic assessment during your employment.

Cover Letter and Resume

You are required to submit a cover letter which should be no longer than 2 pages addressing how your skills, attributes, experience and capabilities align with the role description. You are also required to provide three work referees, preferably being your two most recent line managers and attach your current resume via the online application form. For more information on DHS’s recruitment and selection process please refer to the ‘How to Apply’ page. Please note that for this role you are not required to address Behavioural Questions in the application.

You will only be able to save your progress once all mandatory questions are completed on each respective page. It is recommended to allow enough time to complete the whole application as the system times out after one hour. Please be aware that late applications cannot be accepted.

Please note: Information provided in applications, including user account information is an official record pursuant to the State Records Act, 1997 and will be retained in accordance with General Disposal Schedule 30. As a result, requests for deletion of your application(s) and/or related user account(s) may be declined.
