Application Process

Pre-Employment Screening

South Gippsland Shire Council is committed to safeguarding children and young people.

Employees and volunteers undergo screening processes prior to appointment and successful applicants must comply with the South Gippsland Shire Council Child Safety Plan.

As part of the pre-employment screening process, all preferred candidates will be asked to complete a Criminal History Check online. In addition to this, some positions at Council may be subject to a pre-employment medical examination to determine if you are medically fit to perform the requirements of the position. Other checks may include a Working with Children Check and/or a Qualifications or Australian Work Rights Check to determine your eligibility to perform the role.

All offers of employment are subject to the suitable return of all applicable pre-employment checks.
