To be successful in the review, you need to demonstrate that you have stronger claims to the job than the person promoted to the position.

This means stronger skills and other work-related qualities. 

The Australian Public Service Commissioner's Directions identify work-related qualities as:

  • skills and abilities
  • qualifications, training and competencies
  • standard of work performance
  • capacity to produce outcomes by effective performance at the level required
  • relevant personal qualities, such as honesty and integrity
  • potential for further development
  • ability to contribute to team performance.
