The Australian National Audit Office (ANAO) is committed to attract, retain and develop a skilled and diverse workforce that meets our current and future needs in order to deliver against our purpose as outlined in the ANAO Corporate Plan 2021–22 .

ANAO’s recruitment and selection decisions are based on merit and consistent with the ANAO Values and the Australian Public Service (APS) Values. Your application will be assessed by a selection committee against the ANAO Capability Framework and the specific position description. You are not required to respond to individual selection criteria, however you will be asked to submit no more than 1,000 words outlining your relevant experience and why you are the best applicant for the job.

Should you be shortlisted, you will be contacted at the email address you supplied on your application with an invite for you to login to our eRecruit system to select an interview time. Applicants who are unsuccessful after shortlisting will be advised of this by email.

If you are interviewed, you will be expected to demonstrate your suitability and efficiency against the capabilities which define the necessary attributes of the role. The Selection Panel will assess those claims in a fair and practical way. Interviews may be conducted face to face, by telephone or video conference at the discretion of the selection panel.

Generally, applicants will be given at least two days notice of an interview. However, applicants are expected to be available for interview from the close of applications.

You may also be asked to undertake a brief work sample exercise and personality questionnaire. These tools will assist the selection panel when assessing your claims for the position and also enable them to gain an insight in to your working preferences.

Referee reports may also be obtained to further assist the selection panel in their assessment of your suitability and capabilities for the role.

Following ANAO delegate approval of the merit list, successful applicants will be contacted by phone and subsequently emailed a formal offer of employment. Unsuccessful applicants will be notified by email.

Applicants who have been placed on an order of merit, and who have agreed to have their details made available to other agencies, will be contacted before their details are provided.
