Searching for jobs
Recruitment Online provides two methods of searching for jobs:
Basic Search - you will need to select at least one job category that you are interested in, no other details are specified in this search. If you don't have any preferences about the location, subject(s) or duties or type of employment (e.g. full or part time), this search will allow you to browse the results for specific jobs you are interested in.
Advanced Search - provides you with the ability to provide several search criteria to ensure that jobs shown are limited to those you are most interested in. To save time browsing through jobs, you should try different search criteria so that the number of jobs returned is not so large or that no jobs match.
You will need to select one or more job categories, in the same way that you had to in the Basic Search. Additionally, you can select location(s), subject/duties and further refine your job requirements by choosing one or more classifications within the job categories.
When specifying locations, you can choose one or more locations you are interested in, schools, regions or local government areas. A map is shown which takes you to the Schools Online Website. This provides basic geographic information about the regions and schools.
If you are searching for jobs which have specific requirements, select the most appropriate subject/duties. For example, if you are looking for English / Study of Society and Environment jobs, add the ‘English’ and ‘Study of Society and Environ’ subjects (if you only include one, jobs requiring both subject/duties will still be listed).
If you are looking for jobs at one or more specific Departmental classifications, you can include all of them. For example, if you are looking for a position as a new graduate, you should select the 'Teacher' Job Category, then select ‘Graduate Teacher Program’, 'Classroom Teacher' etc. as classifications. Similarly, an example of a leading teaching interested in either leading teacher or entry level assistant principal positions could select the corresponding Job Categories then open the Job Classification Lookup and select 'Leading Teacher 2', 'Assistant Principal - Range 1' and 'Assistant Principal - Range 2'.
Applying for jobs
When you have found a job you wish to apply for, you should begin by creating a document (e.g. MS Word document) which addresses the specific Key Selection Criteria (KSC).
If you do not want to search for the job again, you can ‘save’ the job (you will be required to login or register before doing this). The job will then appear in your personal list of ‘Saved Jobs’, available whenever you login.
Once you have completed your KSC response, you can apply for the job online. The job application process will lead you through a series of steps allowing you to provide employment, education and personal details as well as attaching your KSC response document.
