Writing Expressions of Interest
There are many government roles that are not advertised externally. Temporary roles that do not have to go through the formal recruitment process can be advertised internally.
Many of these internally advertised roles are a great opportunity to act in a higher level position or gain valuable experience in a different area to the one you're currently working in.
Typically, internally advertised roles require a written expression of interest. An advertisement for an Expression of Interest is likely to include a list of Selection Criteria or required experience/attributes for the position. To discuss an Expression of Interest, please click here.
What to include in an Expression of Interest
Many Expressions of Interest will list Selection Criteria, similar to those for permanent job vacancies. However, even if Selection Criteria are listed, you are not likely to have to provide a full formal statement of claim against Selection Criteria.
You may need to write a short statement that individually addresses a list of Selection Criteria.
Alternatively, you may be asked to detail your relevant experience in an extended cover letter. You may even only have to submit a covering email and resume.
If the requirements for an EOI are not clearly stated in the job advertisement, it is important that you clarify these with the position contact before starting your application.
As when writing any job application, it is best to clarify what your recruiter/hirer is looking for, and stick to what they have requested.
