Application guide

Latrobe City Council prides itself on a merit based application process. Applicants are shortlisted according to their suitability for the position. To ensure a fair and equitable process, all applications require a resume and cover letter as a minimum. Some positions may require additional documents such as education certificates or working with children check.

Cover letter

The cover letter is your opportunity to introduce yourself and provide an overview of your suitability for the role. Use your cover letter to highlight your key skills, experience and qualifications relevant to the position you are applying for.


Your resume should include your employment history and experience, education, training and qualifications, key skills, knowledge and attributes.

Key selection criteria

The key selection criteria questions help us to better understand how you meet the requirements of the position. It is unlikely that your application will progress to interview stage if you do not address the criteria fully. Requirements vary for each position and relate directly to the position description, so it's important you review the position description before you start. It is a good idea to refer to the position description when you prepare your answers.

Under each selection criteria listed, explain and provide examples of how you meet those criteria in relation to the requirements of the position description.

You do not need to upload a separate document addressing the key selection criteria.

Application tips
