Due to the nature of the role offered it is important for the suitability of the applicant to be measured against numerous inherent requirements of the position that would enable the successful applicant to be employed in a Local Government role. For this reason, the short listed applicants will be required to undertake the following pre-employment checks: Psychometric Testing, Reference Checks, Identity Check, Drug and Alcohol Screening and Medical Check, and may also include a Criminal History and Working with Children Check. Employment will be subject to clearance on all of the pre-employment checks.
