Employment FAQs

How do I apply?

You will be required to complete an online application form which will request the following information:

  • full name
  • residential address
  • contact telephone number
  • full details of all education and academic qualifications and any specialised training
  • immigration status including work permit and passport details and country of origin (You may be asked to bring copies of your passport to an interview.)
  • drivers licence details including what classes (You may be asked to bring copies of your drivers licence to an interview.)
  • details of present and previous employment
  • interests and involvement in activities other than those associated with employment
  • the names of, and means of contacting, two referees
  • such other information that might assist in determining the applicant’s suitability.

You will also be asked to upload your cover letter and curriculum vitae, so please have these documents ready.

Any supporting documentation you think will support your application however, if specific information is required by NPDC (e.g. art portfolio) you will be asked to forward that or bring it to an interview if you are shortlisted. You may also be asked to bring in your driver's licence or passport.

Any applicant canvassing any elected member of the Council or of any community board shall automatically be disqualified from appointment; provided that this shall not preclude any applicant from nominating any such elected member as a referee.
