Hints for applying with RockBuild
What’s the merit principle?
In the private sector, job selection is based on the merit principle.
Under this principle, RockBuild employs, promotes and transfers employees based on their suitability to:
- perform relevant duties
- work in the relevant workplace
- work in the administration or construction sector
What’s the difference between selection criteria and merit criteria?
Selection criteria are different to merit criteria. While the selected applicant must meet all the essential selection criteria, they must also have the best knowledge, skill, qualifications and experience to fulfill the role.
A candidate needs to show ambition, direction and a desire to better themselves so the selection panel can determine future potential.
How can you show merit?
There are lots of different ways to demonstrate merit. The components of merit aren’t always given equal weight. There are times when existing knowledge and experience are the most critical factors in a role. At other times, it’s better to take on someone with less experience but more skill.
For example, your qualifications may not be as high as another candidate, but your work experience and willingness to do what’s needed to add value might be more important to the team.
Or, you could have qualifications that are higher than what we need for the role, but the fact you worked hard to qualify in a special interest area may show your ambition, direction and desire to better yourself.
Meeting the selection criteria
So, how can you stand out?
For each selection criteria, always consider your:
Give clear examples of each. Write in plain English, using fewer words to say more.
Limit your job application to a one-page summary sheet with an attached resume setting out experience, qualifications, duties and achievements in previous roles, and contact details for current and other relevant referees.
While you can demonstrate your knowledge and qualifications through formal study or work experience, skills and potential are harder to define.
Potential is more than just a feeling we have about someone based on their writing style or personality.
You can show your potential by describing your capabilities.
For example, you might explain how you picked up a new piece of information quickly, came up with an improved way of doing something and shared this with the team or worked flexibly to achieve a goal.
When your referees reinforce your stories of achievement, it strengthens your credibility.
People have lots of different skills, even if they’re working in similar roles. Therefore, it’s vital for you to demonstrate the required skills, as well as those extra skills that place you at an advantage.
If you’re applying for a role in a team, but have mainly worked on your own or without direction, show examples of how you approach collaboration outside of work.
Remember, skills can be transferable. You may not have led a team of engineers, but you have demonstrated leadership through project management. Let us know.
