• Interview

Your interview will be conducted by a selection panel and is designed to be a two-way discussion between you and them. You can elect to do your interview in person or via video link if you are not in Tasmania.

The panel will ask you a range of questions based on the selection criteria and may also ask you some questions about your psychometric assessment.

Good preparation is key to a successful interview. While each person may prepare themselves differently, some tips include:

  • Read your application and the statement of duties
  • Familiarise yourself with Tasmania Fire Service
  • Think about possible interview questions and how you would answer them
  • Prepare yourself to elaborate on your written application or give new examples
  • Get a friend to help you practise.

  • Referee check

At this stage your referees will be contacted via email. You should choose your referees carefully and you must include either your current line manager/supervisor or a recent line manager from the last 3-6 months. If this is not possible, the name of an earlier supervisor or work colleague should be provided who can testify to your abilities in line with the selection criteria.
