Selection Criteria Example – Are You The Right Person For The Job?

Looking for an example of selection criteria that asks for a two page statement addressing ‘Are You The Right Person For The Job?’ This is a real life example addressing the key criteria including Supports Strategic Direction, Achieves Results, Supports Productive Working Relationships and Communicates With Influence.

Supports Strategic Direction

I work in alignment with the strategy of the organisation by following the directions of my supervisor, asking questions to ensure I understand all roles and responsibilities associated with the position and by making suggestions to improve work practices. Additionally, my employment with Narang Hospice Care and the State Reporting Bureau has provided practical experience in understanding what information can/should be provided to others – both internally and externally from the organisation.

Specifically my role as a Client Service Officer for the Department of Justice means I have a solid understanding of both privacy and confidentiality laws and requirements. For example I need to verify a client’s identity before processing their requests and ensure that transcripts are only available to the appropriate individuals. Additionally I understand where to gain further information around our procedures through accessing our online procedure database or asking my supervisor for additional clarification.

My ability to improve current work practices is demonstrated through an example of when I was relieving in the position of ‘Coordinator’ for the Justice Department and we received news of extensive redundancies from within the team. I identified that in order to improve our work practice I needed to address the issue so I coordinated a ‘Dealing With Change’ workshop for the team which allowed staff members to cope with the change and improved work performance by decreasing staff resistance to the upcoming change within the organisation.

Achieves Results

As a member of the Justice Department, I was required to meet specific deadlines. For example, if a request to review evidence was presented at trial, I was required to have the transcripts completed and returned within one hour. At other times all court transcripts were required to be completed by the end of the day demonstrating my ability to achieve results in line with the organisations expectations. My position with the Justice Department also required a high level of accuracy. During the 7 years of my employment the accuracy of my transcripts was never questioned and I received praise from management for my ability to achieve expected outcomes for the business unit.

I attended all shifts and have never had an issue with my reliability in any past roles. I’ve often changed shifts or covered for other staff members on short notice, responding with flexibility to any requests from management. I achieve all work goals and work in a self-directed manner that requires minimum supervision. I constantly look for ways to streamline processes and save time and actively seek feedback from my supervisor to ensure all job expectations have been met. Previous performance management reports have been favourable demonstrating my ability to make effective use of my own capabilities.

I have a solid understanding of my own strengths and weaknesses and have identified ways to improve on these. I continually review my own progress towards individual goals and I have delivered measurable results in past positions through meeting all key performance objectives associated with the role. I manage all resources effectively and maintain a proactive outlook where I meet deadlines and take ownership for my own decisions.

Supports Productive Working Relationships

My ability to support productive relationships is demonstrated through my recent experience with Narang Hospice Care where I coordinated a team of 20+ volunteers from different cultures and backgrounds. I also provided administration support to the Director and Business Development Manager and monthly reports to the Management Committee.

I was also employed as the Staff Trainer for all new recruits for the State Reporting Bureau, where after completing three months’ worth of training the new hires were involved in a three month ‘buddy’ system where they worked with another team member to record their transcripts further demonstrating my ability to work with others.

In both instances I’ve found that by anticipating any conflict and taking a proactive approach to conflict I was able to meet the needs and expectations of others. When working with others I treat every individual with respect, avoiding making assumptions about what they need, maintain an attitude of helpfulness and ask lots of questions to clarify any issues.

Displays Personal Drive and Integrity

I offer an extensive knowledge of Queensland Acts and Regulations, Public Service Values and the Code of Conduct developed through a short-term contract as part of the Death Review Team for the Royal Commission where I was responsible for data management processes. Prior to this I spent 7 years with the Department of Justice as a Court Monitor and Transcriptionist where I was responsible for ensuring departmental compliance with all procedures and policy in relation to transcripts, workflow and spreadsheets. All my recent roles have involved exposure to explicit information and material (including coronial reports, concise graphical scene depiction and injuries sustained as well as expert medical evidence) which is all confidential and subject to a principled approach.

Additionally I display personal drive and integrity through ensuring personal responsibility for the accuracy of all work completed and ensuring it meets deadline requirements. I display high levels of personal drive and motivation and offer the ability to provide accurate advice to other staff on complex issues. For example I trained new staff as part of my role with the Justice Bureau where I explained our policies and procures and provided best practice tips to ensure they would meet their workflow agreements. I was also responsible for guiding a team of 20+ volunteers for Narang Hospice Care where I provided advice in response to any volunteer enquiries.

Communicates With Influence

I have excellent verbal and written communication skills and can communicate with people at different levels. An example of this occurred when a family member was dissatisfied with a court transcript and requested a review be conducted. To de-escalate the situation I listened to the client carefully, asked questions to clarify the issue and followed up with management to ensure a resolution. I followed this issue through for the client and ensured the client was made aware of what had happened and apologised on behalf of the department, effectively de-escalating a potentially volatile situation. Additionally my volunteer role at the local community hospice incorporated meeting and greeting distressed relatives who were attending the hospice for grief counseling sessions after recent loss of a family member.  An empathetic approach assisted in managing these delicate situations professionally.

My written skills demonstrate my ability to communicate messages clearly and concisely. I offer well developed written skills including a typing speed of 80WPM and an accuracy level of 98%. Responsible for providing accurate and timely court transcripts and recording court proceedings, I ensured all transcript requests where completed according to set deadlines and met quality standards.

No idea what to write for your criteria?

I’ve been writing selection criteria in a professional capacity for (8) years now. In that time, I discovered a very simple and effective formula to follow to make writing criteria quick and painless.

I quickly realised the basics of the writing process were the same for every criterion.

It was ONLY the individual examples that changed for each one.

(Read on and I’ll show you EXACTLY how to do each step so you can write your criteria in 30 minutes or less).

I created ‘fill in the blank’ selection criteria templates and now can write criteria in 30 minutes when it used to take me (3) hours!

And every selection criteria is still absolutely unique for each individual.

(I have over 80+ examples I can send to prove it).

Ready for the super simple steps I use over and over again to create winning selection criteria for clients?

Step One: Fill in a simple ‘Achievement Questionnaire’ to pinpoint your achievements.

Step Two: Use the ‘Fill in the Blank’ templates I created to turn these achievements into examples for each criteria. The filler content is part of the template. Just plug in the questionnaire answers and the selection criteria is written for you.

Step Three: If you get stuck on any challenging criteria not part of the template, turn to my 80+ winning real-life examples for inspiration and guidance.

Last year, I released my ‘DIY -Fill In The Blank Templates’ to my existing clients as a bonus with great success. I gave them EVERYTHING I use to write winning professional selection criteria including the achievement questionnaire, fill in the blank templates and my 80+ real life winning selection criteria examples.

My clients were able to write their own criteria in 30 minutes or less using exactly the same process that I use.
