How to apply for a job with the CMC
Job vacancies available with us are posted in the current vacancies section of this website with a link to the Queensland Government Smart Jobs website for more detail.
The majority of our vacancies will require you to complete and attach the following — in all cases follow the instructions on the position description.
- An application form (when applying offline)
- A detailed resume, including your work experience and any other information relevant to the role
- Name, role and contact number of at least 2 referees (preferably current or previous supervisors) who are familiar with your performance and achievements
Review the position description to identify the work experience, education and skills the ideal candidate should have. Draft your resume and statement of claims (if required) in a way that best shows how you are suited for the role.
You must register before applying online through Smart Jobs. Once you have done so, use the ‘Apply online’ button at the bottom of the 'job details' page.
To save your online application as a draft and return to it at a later time, click ‘Save and submit later’ at the bottom of the form.
Register and apply online through Smart Jobs.
When you have completed your Smart Jobs application, click ‘Submit’. Note that once you do this, you cannot return to it or make any further changes. The only other option you have its to withdraw it. It will, be saved in ‘My applications’ for your reference.
In jobs with a questionnaires attached to the application form, the ‘Next’ button acts in the same way as ‘Submit’ — once you click it you cannot return to the application form.
Ensure you submit your application before the closing date, as it may not be accepted at a later time.
If you are submitting your application late, please notify the contact person named in the position description. The selection panel will decide if they will accept a late application.
You can withdraw an application on SmartJobs or by contacting us. If you withdraw an application you will not be able to resubmit through SmartJobs for the same vacancy. Confirm with the contact person that you can send in a new application by another method.
The selection panel will consist of at least 2 people who will:
- consider the applications
- short-list applicants to be interviewed
- use the selection techniques best suited to determining which applicant can best fulfil the duties of the position. These can include
- work samples
- ability tests
- structured group and individual exercises.
Members of the selection panel will contact your referees during the selection process if necessary. No referee will be contacted without your prior consent.
Applicants for positions for the CMC may be required to undergo strict security vetting, which includes making personal and financial disclosures.
Once we have approved the appointment of the selected candidate, we will advise both the appointee and all unsuccessful applicants of the outcome, as soon as possible.
If you would like post-selection feedback, please contact the Chair of the selection panel.
