Organisational & Time Management Selection Criteria Examples

These ‘Organisational & Time Management’ selection criteria examples have you covered.

Demonstrated organisational and time management skills (Medical resident)

I have excellent organisational and time management skills, including the ability to follow work schedules to achieve results.

Examples of times when I have been required to utilise my time management and organisational skills include during my employment as a Resident Medical Officer, where I practiced in two different hospitals in Canada. During my tenure, I managed cardiac, hypertensive and diabetic patients, multiple trauma as well as sick children, pregnancies and women health issues. As part of my overall care for patients, I was required to take good history, conduct clinical examination, order and interpret investigations, prescribe and administer treatments and medications, perform minor surgeries and refer cases requiring admission to hospitals. This required firm management of my case load in order to prioritise the care and treatment of all my patients. At times, patients would present with a number of separate medical issues which needed to be addressed. In order to ensure comprehensive care I would prioritise the patient’s complaints by order of severity before prescribing treatment. I also encouraged patients to let us know when entering the medical facility if they anticipated a longer consultation in order to better prioritise our services to patients.

I have also been responsible for triaging patients according to their injuries during my tenure as an Intern Medical Officer, which included the emergency and chronic management of patients presenting to the ward. This experience, coupled with the ability to manage further tertiary study while completing an Observership, demonstrate my ability to organise and manage my time to meet job responsibilities.

Ability to prioritise work and meet expected deadlines (Administration Assistant Application)

I am a highly organised individual with the ability to maintain accuracy and work to strict deadlines. An example of this occurred recently at Betta Letters when one of the supervisors needed a number of letters to be inserted into envelopes and ready to be mailed out on the same day. This was an urgent job and the short notice made it difficult for the task to be completed on time. To resolve this issue, I negotiated with my supervisor for me to stay back and work late in order to ensure that the machine had inserted the correspondence into the envelopes in time for this deadline. I also renegotiated some other work with a less than urgent deadline in order to leave room for this task to be completed. The supervisor was very impressed with my ability to resolve his problem of getting these letters completed on time and I received positive feedback for my organisational ability as a result. When faced with a time sensitive task, I convert the goal into an achievable task and set a work schedule. This forward planning approach ensures I meet all the deadlines and job responsibilities of my role as per Key Performance Indicators.

A Letter From Me To You

Hi There,

My name is Nicole Coggan and I want to help you get the job you love through creating you a resume or cover letter that gets you the attention you deserve.

I know you have loads of achievements that are just waiting to be uncovered and I’m here to help you uncover these so you can highlight them on your resume or criteria. I understand that the whole resume process can be overwhelming and confusing which is why I’ve created a ridiculously easy order process.

I offer a 100% online and phone consultancy in order to keep my overheads down and to pass on the savings to you so just let me know if you would prefer a phone interview or to fill in my super easy questionnaire.

I’ve been helping people find work, create resumes and write selection criteria for the past 8 years and prior to starting my own consultancy worked for the big names in Employment Services such as MAX, ITEC and DSDS.

On a recent customer service survey I conducted 100% of respondents stated they would refer me to their family or friends and I received some really nice referrals and feedback from past clients, some of which I’ve included in the testimonial section above.

I look forward to working with you.

Real Client Feedback

“I thought you might like to know that I was successful and was offered the position today which I accepted. I would like to say a big thanks for all your assistance and will be raising a cold one to say cheers tonight.”Brett C

“Hi Nicole, Just a little bit of feedback for you! I used my resume for the advertised position as discussed with you, I had a phone call 48 hours after sending it in for an interview. The doctor that called me said he just wanted to let me know that my resume was very well written and gave him the details he required without having to go through pages of nothing he said it told him what I could do and that is what he needed to know! Once again thank you.’” Coleen

“Hi Nicole, I just wanted to say thank you for your services at the beginning of the year. I am happy to say that I was offered a position and am now in my third week of work at the Hospital. There have been only a handful job openings in my area in the past few years and hundreds of applicants for each position. The application you put together for me allowed me to clearly and confidently communicate what I have to offer and I am sure this is what gave me an edge over other candidates. Thank you very much and all the best for you and your business” .

Customer Service Selection Criteria Examples

Use these examples to demonstrate how you meet selection criteria involving customer service.

Ability to understand and meet the needs of clients and stakeholders to ensure that the right information is provided to the right people (Finance Officer Application)

My ability to understand and meet the needs of clients and stakeholders is demonstrated through my current employment as the Lead Accountant at Miller Services. To ensure the right information is provided to the right people, I respond to all client requests promptly, avoid making assumptions about they need and instead ask questions to clarify their request. I take the initiative to develop policies that assist our clients and I maintain a helpful attitude, demonstrating professionalism at all times.

I hold a Master of Accounting and Finance Management degree from Curtin University, a Bachelor of Commerce Degree and a Certificate III in Business Management which ensures that I have the answers to the majority of client or stakeholder questions. If I don’t know the answer to a particular question, I am able to source the information from the correct location.  I’ve also completed additional training in GST and Insurance Accounting, which expands further on this knowledge.

An understanding of customer service requirements in the position and a demonstrated record of strong commitment and achievement in meeting customer needs. (Customer Service Application)

Prior to my employment with Miller Services, I worked as both an Energy Consultant and Sales Representative which included reviewing and processing calculations for customers, verifying account details with customers, preparing customer welcome information and selling LGH products to residential customers. During this role, I had a number of Key Performance Indicators, specific towards my ability to provide excellent customer service which was always exceeded. This demonstrates my commitment to both customers and ensuring that customer delivery standards are met and maintained.

I believe that customer service should not be seen as just an extension of my job but as a fundamental part of an organisation’s success. I believe that a smile and a friendly and personable approach is one of the critical ingredients to success with customer service. I also strive for mutual satisfaction when it comes to resolving a customer complaint and have a solid set of negotiation and conflict resolution skills. For example, by seeking to first understand where a client is coming from, before trying to be understood, the situation does not escalate into an argument and a swift resolution can be found.

Technical Capabilities Example Selection Criteria

Need to address the technical side of selection criteria? These examples show you how.

Experience in a technical environment (Administration Officer Application)

My role at LP demonstrates my experience in a technical environment. Along with the MS Office Suite, I used ‘Harmony’ account software, the company ‘intranet’ program and the internet to complete my role. I’m also PBX communication system competent and have experience with EDI. Other technology expertise includes printers, faxes, scanners, switchboards and various computers and programs.  I pick up new programs quickly. For example, I taught myself ‘Harmony’  which was our accounting program for debtors, creditors, mapping and stock control within a few days of starting my position through accessing it’s help function and watching others perform their roles.

As the Administration Manager, I acted as ‘first point of contact’ for any technical issues. When faced with an issue I gathered as much information about the issue as possible, prior to coming up with potential solutions. For example, if a problem was identified with the printer, I would check for paper jams, check the screen for troubleshooting tips, make sure the cartridge was installed properly and gather information from the person who identified the problem as to the specifics.  If I was unable to resolve the issue, I would contact technical support who provided troubleshooting via the phone, prior to contacting a technician to come on site potentially saving the company money in call out fees.

Evidence of computer literacy working in an operational environment (Administration Application)

I have a high degree of technical computer knowledge, demonstrated by a Master of Information Systems degree obtained through SEQ University. I have an excellent understanding of the MS Office Suite and can use Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook. Further, I have an excellent understanding of the internal computer system currently used by Big Boy Services and use ‘Objective’ on a daily basis to record and track mailing packages.

I have an excellent understanding of the technological office equipment also used as part of the role, such as scanners, printers and fax machines and can troubleshoot issues with both the computer systems and this office equipment with minimal assistance. I also understand where I can find help to resolve technical difficulties and can follow instructions to make minor repairs and alternations to systems as necessary.

Communicates with Influence Selection Criteria Examples

Need to address the communication part of your selection criteria? These examples have you covered.

Communicates with Influence (Office Manager Application)

I communicate with influence and present information in a clear and concise manner. I also offer demonstrated experience in networking and communicating with external bodies. For example prior to NCRS I worked in Child Protection where I frequently networked and negotiated between Foster Carers and the Department of Communities (DOCS). Child Protection matters can be highly charged and sensitive so it was vital that I approached all negotiation from a neutral perspective based on facts and evidence.  In this role I was also responsible for conducting Foster Carer Assessments to determine the suitability of potential carers which required a comprehensive assessment report to be completed and forwarded to DOCS. It was vital that the report contained all information prevalent to the assessment no matter how small as this evidence could be used in court in the event of a future incident.

In my current role I write clear and concise advertising for Google Adwords Campaigns. With an Adwords Campaign I only have three lines to meet a number of objectives. As the company only pays when someone clicks on the advertisement it is vital that the text discourages individuals who are not the right fit for the service. For example I include the price so people with a limited budget don’t click on it. I also include the fact the NCRS only does phone or email appointments so that clients looking for a face to face consult also avoid clicking on the advertisement. At the same time I need to ensure the text invites out ideal clients to visit our sales page by including the terms they are searching for such as “professional resume service” and any specials or promotions.

Excellent interpersonal, verbal and written communication skills (IT Team Leader Application)

My interpersonal skills are demonstrated through my position as Team Leader. I lead a team of four staff members, sometimes in high pressure and tense environments. I also work with both technical and non-technical stakeholders on cross function projects and via remote communication such as email, phone, instant messenger and video conferencing.

Reporting to Senior Management, I produce ad hoc reports, including progress reports for management, technical data reports and analysis and coverage reports. I also write technical papers, respond to email enquiries, write content for the internet, deliver presentations, chair the Change Advisory Board, conduct team meetings and run meetings according to specific projects. I have presented to audiences of 40+ participants and conducted workshops and training for groups of 12.

Attention to Detail Criteria Examples

ATTENTION TO DETAIL SELECTION CRITERIA EXAMPLE

 

Ability to ensure data integrity through demonstrated attention to detail and quality data input (Finance Officer Application)

I am able to ensure the integrity of all data through attention to detail and quality input. As the only administrative worker at LINTS, I administer all aspects of payroll, including administering the superfunds of staff members. This role requires that the database be regularly updated and remain current at all times.  I am very conscious about the consequential impacts in the event of any inaccuracy incurred. Therefore, I always compare raw data with written evidence before entering the information into the system.

Dealing with account payables and receivables at LINTS requires me to enter numerous figures into the system and I can confidently say that I have never made any mistake as to the accuracy of this. The following is a summary of tasks that I perform routinely that require data entry:

  • Organise the Payroll and Superannuation in line with the law and contracts and provide group certificates each year.
  • Collect and record Account Receivables and issue statements.
  • Arrange payments for Account Payables, reconcile statements and liaise with suppliers.
  • Calculate, file and arrange the payment of Excise Duties, GST and other taxes, and BAS reporting.
  • Bank/Credit Reconciliation.
  • Balance Sheet transactions and reconciliation, such as Depreciation.
  • Assisting external accountant with financial reports preparation.

When it comes to attention to detail, I have the ability to pick up on errors prior to finalisation through comprehensively checking the document. I understand the value of accurate data entry and I follow all company policy and procedures.

How To Write Selection Criteria For A Government Application

Applying for a government job and not sure how to write the selection criteria you need to lodge your application? Here’s the ‘need to know’ basics to get you started.

So what’s the best way to make writing selection criteria less sucky? Start with the basics. Make sure you title the document what it is. ‘Response to Selection Criteria’ works just fine and add in your name and contact details. If your selection criteria is going to be longer than 2 pages it’s also a good idea to add in a footer with your name and the page number (just in case the employer gets lost printing all your details off). You can do this by going to Insert on the top of your Word document, followed by Footer and just follow the prompts to choose a style that is suited to your needs.

When it comes to font size, 11 or 12 is best and pick something easy to read. There is a reason that many people choose to use New Times Roman.  It is one of the easiest fonts for the employer to read. Other good choices include Calibri and Arial. I also like to add a border but it’s a personal preference. Adding in a plain black border is super easy. Just hit Page Layout on your menu bar, followed by Page Borders and choose one that suits your needs.

The next step is to either retype or copy and paste the actual selection criteria questions onto the document so you know exactly what you are faced with. You don’t have to number them but you can if you want to. Always underline or put the actual questions in bold so it’s easy to read. Now comes the tricky part. You need to actually write the criteria.

Remember to break your text up with paragraphs so it’s easy to read. And please double check that the criteria does not specify either a word or page count. There is nothing worse than pumping out a six page criteria only to discover that there is a 200 word count on each question!

Grab your  DIY Selection Criteria Kit for $19. Limited time only. No Rain-checks. 

Get your package here.

 How long should my criteria be?

If no word count is specified, this is up to you. I like half a page per criteria unless you really do have heaps and heaps of achievements and need more room. That said, anywhere between one paragraph and a page is pretty average depending on the actual position. For example, if you are applying for a role as a Biological Engineer you will be leaning towards the one page mark. If it is a simple reception position, one paragraph usually covers it.

Ok, that’s the basics of how to write selection criteria for a government application. If you need more help – Get in touch:)

“Hi Nicole, I just wanted to say thank you for your services at the beginning of the year. I am happy to say that I was offered a position and am now in my third week of work at the Hospital. There have been only a handful job openings in my area in the past few years and hundreds of applicants for each position. The application you put together for me allowed me to clearly and confidently communicate what I have to offer and I am sure this is what gave me an edge over other candidates. Thank you very much and all the best for you and your business” .

Awesome Tools To Write Your Selection Criteria

Writing your own selection criteria for a government application? Make sure you check out these tools to write a winning criteria that gets results.

Performance Reviews: If you keep them you should have all the quotes and statistics you need to back your claims up with evidence. Employers love evidence.

Written References: These are awesome source to take quotes from. You can add them to your criteria to support to your claims

Official Job Descriptions:  Are you stuck on words to describe your role or how you perform it? Cheat and get ideas from your official job description that someone else has already written for you.

Resume: I have only once written a selection criteria without a copy of the clients resume and I will NEVER do this again. It’s very difficult and hard to have any idea what you are talking about. Keep a copy of your resume beside you as you draft ideas.

Free Courses: What do you do if you stumble upon a criteria that you have zero experience in? Get some free training. My favourite is www.alison.com. They cover courses from accounting to marketing to household budgets and all their courses are free with the ability to print a transcript of your results at the end. These courses are not accredited but you can still use them under the ‘Professional Development’ section of your resume and use them in your criteria to show your knowledge. Alison is ridiculously easy to sign up for and you can work at your own pace which gives you plenty of time to finish before the application closing date.

Challenge 1 – A Stock-Take Of Your Current Skills

Hello campers and welcome to your first challenge!  Our very first challenge is a super simple one. In it we look back at our past jobs (yep, even the time you flipped burgers at McDonalds) to work out your transferrable skills. Transferrable skills are the ones you can take with you to the next job even if it’s in a totally different industry.  Let’s use McDonalds as an example:

Ok, so let’s say your first job out of school was at McDonalds. You served customers, processed payments, made burgers and that was about all. Now let’s say you are looking at a job as a Bank Teller next. Some of the skills you learnt at McDonalds that transfer across might include: cash handling, customer service, conflict resolution etc.

Ok, now you know what you are looking for create a spreadsheet on excel or draw two columns on a piece of paper and list every job you have ever held in the first column. In the second column, write down all the skills you learnt doing that job that would transfer across to the next one.

To Recap:

Your challenge is to identify your key skills based on previous employment history

Step One: Create two columns on a spreadsheet or piece of paper

Step Two: List every job you have ever done

Step Three: List the skills you learnt at each job

Step Four: You should probably create a sub folder on your computer or get a vanilla folder if you are doing the activities manually to keep all your challenges in – because you are going to need this information for some of our resume modules later on.

Here is what some of my past clients have said about our service copied and pasted direct from email:

 

“Hi Nicole
I’ve read through your version of my resume and I have to say…….Wow Congratulations, it’s fantastic!!! You have captured me to a tee. I’m so pleased with the results, and all without us having interviewed face to face. I really can’t thank you enough for what you have achieved in such a tight time frame with limited information and if you were here right now I’d be throwing you a hug and  paying for drinks. . So thank you once again for your professionalism and effort on my behalf. I’ll buy you a drink next time I’m in Queensland 😃😃 As always Kind Regards, Damian

 

Good Morning Nicole,

I was meant to email you last week but I’ve just been so busy, my partner and I just moved house and there’s been so much to do and organise. 

I just wanted to email you to say thank you! What you’ve done is amazing and honestly just blew me away. I didn’t even know resumes could be written professionally until I was told by a friend and had honestly struggled to write my own, it was beginning to stress me out! When I opened up my resume and CL I read it through so many times, it just sounded so amazing and I thought to myself this THIS is a resume and cover letter! You had included things that I hadn’t even thought of and I do those tasks everyday at the restaurant. I’m so much more optimistic about applying for work now and I’m not afraid that I’m sending something dismal and unworthy through as my resume.

Thank you thank you thank you again!!

Hope you have a lovely week and I will definitely be coming back to you for any resume/cover letter writing in the future

Warmest Regards

Sarah

Strategic Direction/Strategic Thinking Selection Criteria Examples

Are you stuck on how to write selection criteria for the strategic thinking or strategic direction questions? I have some selection criteria examples which will help you answer these questions in your application.

 

Selection Criteria Examples: Supports Strategic Direction (Marketing Officer Selection Criteria)

 In charge of marketing and advertising for NCRS I implemented a complete overhaul of the original marketing structure.  I conducted a strengths and needs assessment of the work environment and goals to develop a six point marketing plan with the goal of reducing advertising spend, increasing customer engagement and moving our website from Webs to a self-hosted WordPress platform.  In order to compete on a national scale I developed a plan to reduce Google Adwords expenditure through the launch of an email marketing campaign, changes to all sales and website copy, the addition of an employment focused blog to the site and the transfer of our site from Webs to WordPress for better integration with marketing software (LeadPages, Pop Up Ally and Mail Chimp). With no knowledge of WordPress or any of the integrations I sourced knowledge on how to complete the site transfer via Google, online technology forums, software support pages and various Help Desks. I watched online tutorials, took detailed notes and implemented what I had learnt.

By split testing the copy on our sales page I identified that personal, informal and transparent communication resulted in a higher conversion rate as opposed to the formal style used by big business.  I also identified we could increase sales through the implementation of an ‘opt in’ where we would automatically send potential customers a ‘resume achievement question list’ which would assist the reader to identify their selling points to the employer. In return for the resume achievement questions   the reader would join our email list and we could continue to market our services to them using Mail Chimp automation software. This led to a decrease of 70% on our advertising spend, increased referrals and ensured that 95% of our clients were our ‘ideal customer’.

Selection Criteria Example: Shapes Strategic Thinking

As the Sourcing Team Leader and Senior Recruitment Consultant for Muppet Recruitment it is my role to performance manage and coach my team to harness information and opportunities in order to meet the strategic direction of our organisation. At Muppet, our mission is to be the best we can be in order to compete with the 70+ other IT recruiters located in the Toowoomba geographical area.  This includes increasing our revenue in order to expand our team by providing top level training to all our recruitment staff.  In order to meet these strategic objectives, I assess emerging issues and trends in the IT field and develop long term solutions through performance mentoring and training.

For example, our recruitment staff have a certain amount of activity based key performance indicators they need to meet to reach their individual targets. These activities include phone calls made, candidate interviews, submissions sent etc.  When I identify that a staff member is not reaching their potential, the first thing I check is which activity area is not being achieved. For example, a staff member may not be making enough phone calls to potential clients. After I identify the problem, I work with the team member to come up with a solution and provide tips, mentoring and any further training the staff member requires.  After a solution has been agreed to, I closely monitor the staff member’s performance to ensure that the solution implemented is effective.

For example, since April I have worked closely with one of our Recruitment Personnel who mentioned that she finds it intimidating to speak to candidates who have higher qualifications or more experience in the IT industry. As a result of this lack of confidence, the staff member’s key performance indicators suffered.  To combat this issue, I held a meeting with the staff member and reminded her that our role was to find these candidates employment and that as a recruitment specialist, although she did not have as many credentials as some of her candidates, she did have more experience in the recruitment field which was why candidates sourced her assistance. We also implemented some strategies to assist the staff member to rebuild her confidence. For example, the staff member researched each role and the candidate, listing any possible questions they may ask prior to contacting the candidate about a potential position. This ensured that she was prepared and did not falter when asked specific questions. Since implementing these strategies, this staff member has met all indicators and targets and has stated that she feels more confident in her role. Her number of referrals has also increased. As demonstrated, I believe that a progressive mindset, finding alternative solutions to problems and focusing on the long term goals are key to shaping the strategic thinking ability of a team.
