Applying for a position

Central Coast Council is an equal employment opportunity (EEO) employer and values the diversity of its workforce.

An individual’s race, sex, age, disability, marital status, sexual preference or membership of an ethnic or minority group will not increase or reduce their chances of employment. We apply best practice recruitment and selection while supporting Council's vision.

Applicants with a disability are encouraged to apply for vacant positions. Should you have any special needs during the recruitment process please contact the enquiries person listed in the job advertisement, or alternatively contact People and Culture on 4325 8917 to discuss and make appropriate arrangements.

The following information will help you to understand our selection processes and to prepare your application.

Preparing your application

Before you apply, read the information carefully to assess your eligibility and suitability. The position description can be downloaded from the job advertisement. If you require further details, please contact the officer listed in the position information.

If you decide to apply, you will be required to answer a few questions based on the selection criteria, via the online application form. We recommend copying the questions, then typing and saving your answers into a separate Word document. This makes it easy for you to review and finalise your responses. You can then cut and paste your answers into the application form.

Once you have completed the online application form, attach your resume (CV) which should include information on your qualifications, employment history, skills and experience. We also require scanned copies of your listed qualifications and certificates, along with contact details of two referees. Once all these documents are uploaded, you may submit your application.

Acknowledgement of applications

After your application has been received you will be provided with confirmation via return email.

Closing date

All applications must be received before the advertised closing date and time. Late applications may be accepted at the discretion of the business only.
