Appendix 1: Simulated Business Scenario
Background to scenario
CoffeeVille is a family-owned and run café located in Melbourne. CoffeeVille aims to serve quality food and fair trade coffee at a city pace. The café is currently open 7 am–5 pm, Monday to Friday.
CoffeeVille has been experiencing consistent growth in sales and numbers of customers over the last two years. This growth has led to a need for a second floor manager who is able to manage customer complaints, take responsibility for higher level café operations and manage staff performance.
The current manager, Joe Belfone, works four days a week. Joe is a good manager, but when he’s not there on Fridays, the café does not run as smoothly. The owners of the café have also decided to start opening on Saturdays, and would like to have at least one manager working from Monday to Saturday.
Owners Emma and Rufus Belcastran have provided you with the task of recruiting a full-time or part-time café manager (working Tuesday–Saturday or Wednesday–Saturday). Recruitment, selection, and induction processes must be undertaken in accordance with relevant external standards, such as legislation and codes of practice, and internal standards, such as organisational policies and procedures.
You will need to review organisational documentation and undertake preliminary research into hiring a café manager.
You will need to recommend the tasks and timelines required for recruitment and selection, provide a job description and advertisement for the role and, finally, provide an interview guide template to the owners for approval.
The new staff member needs to be appointed within six months.
Consultation notes
The following are recorded notes from consultations that you’ve undertaken with management.
Rufus Belcastran – Owner
Rufus has expressed that he would like to:
? interview ASAP and is happy to negotiate a suitable time for interviews
? attract an applicant through referral from staff or patrons.
Rufus would like a café manager who is available for an immediate start, who lives locally and who has at least five years’ experience in:
? managing staff
? barista training
? motivating staff
? induction and in-house training
? performance appraisals.
Rufus would also like to hire an individual with a qualification that is relevant to operating/managing a small business.
Rufus is available any time for interviews.
Emma Belcastran – Owner
Emma wants to spend the minimum on advertising the position and generally prefers to try advertising on the shop window or through word of mouth. She really wants the manager to start some time in the next six months.
In terms of the salary, Emma explains that ideally they want to hire someone who’s available for a full-time work week (38 hours) at $24.50 an hour.
Emma is available to conduct interviews on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, but she requires at least 48 hours’ notice.
Emma also mentions that it’s really important to ensure that anyone of any age, gender, cultural background feels welcome to apply. Emma says: ‘We’ve tended to write ads in the past with extremely formal English and sophisticated wording and I feel like it has limited our applicant pool to people with university degrees. I want to move away from that kind of advertising to attract someone with the right skills, not someone with a PhD.’
When you write the advertisement, put my name and email as the contact details for submitting the applications.
Emma would be looking for the following in the new café manager:
? an understanding of fair trade principles
? a qualification that is relevant to operating/managing a small business
? exceptional communication skills
? staff management experience including:
? performance management
? training
? strong understanding of coffee products
? sales and customer service skills
? sustainability and community building experience
? ability to develop and implement café policies and procedures
? ability to manage vendors and maintain inventory
? ability to run staff meetings.
Joe Belfone – Current Café Manager
Joe would prefer to promote an existing staff member who understands the needs of the café and requires limited training. Plus, an internal staff member would be able to start immediately which would be a big help to Joe. Joe would like to utilise CoffeeVille’s Facebook page to advertise the position.
Joe is available after 3pm, when he finishes work, for interviews, or Tuesdays around 11am when café is quiet.
Joe would be looking for the following in the new café manager:
? CoffeeVille product knowledge
? at least three years’ experience in:
? managing staff, including training
? performance appraisals
? must be highly motivated
? excellent communication and interpersonal skills
? excellent management and leadership skills
? good organisational skills
? an understanding of food and beverage operations
? must be available to work four weekdays and Saturday each week
? social media savvy especially with Facebook and Twitter
? bilingual skills desirable (particularly Italian, Greek or Chinese)
The new manager would need to be able to perform the following duties:
? coordinating the café schedule, covering different shifts if necessary
? serving as the lead customer service contact at the café, including answering questions, welcoming customers, and other communications
? responsibility for keeping café area clean, neat and orderly
? ordering any supplies needed for the café.

Performance objective
In this task you will demonstrate the skills and knowledge required to work with an interview panel to complete an interview and select a successful applicant for the role.
Assessment description
Across three assessment tasks you will support the recruitment, selection and induction of staff. In this Assessment task, you will participate in interviewing applicants and making a selection.

You will use résumé documents provided to select two appropriate applicants to interview for the role of Café Manager at CoffeeVille. You will then update the interview guide you developed in Assessment Task 1, and interview two applicants for the role. You will need to work as a group to complete these tasks.
The final part of this task involves conducting reference checks and writing a selection report to recommend an applicant for the role. This part of the task is to be completed individually.
Part A
1. Review the CoffeeVille simulated business documentation provided to you in Assessment Task 1.
2. Form a group of learners to act as a selection panel as per your assessor’s instructions. Your assessor may need to provide direction on identifying suitable learners to convene a selection panel with if you are separated from selection panel members by distance or time. Seek approval for the composition of the selection panel from your assessor before continuing.
3. With your selection panel, read and review the résumés (provided in Appendix 1) to determine who you would consider to be the strongest two applicants for the role. You will then interview these two applicants in Part B of this Assessment Task. During this stage, you will need to:
a. short-list applicants based on the requirements of the job role and the needs of CoffeeVille (as documented in the scenario in Assessment Task 1 and in the CoffeeVille policies and procedures)
b. adhere to principles of EEO and anti-discrimination legislation
c. negotiate for your preferred two applicants
d. take notes to document how the selection panel determined the most appropriate applicants to be interviewed; you will need to refer to these notes to write a selection report in Part C of this task.
4. With your selection panel, determine which interview questions (of the questions you individually developed for Assessment Task 1 and documented in the interview guide) you will choose to ask applicants during the interview. During this stage you will need to:
a. assign a weighting (from 0 to 5; 5 being most important) for each question
b. ensure that the group’s questions comply with legislative requirements, e.g. are not directly or indirectly discriminatory
c. edit your interview guide and replace your original questions with the final questions that are agreed on as a group
d. take notes to document how the selection panel determined the most appropriate questions to ask the applicant during the interview. You will need to refer to these notes to write a selection report in Part C of this task.
5. Once the group has selected applicants to be interviewed and agreed on interview questions, the group needs to schedule the interview role-plays with your assessor (who will act in the roles of the part of your chosen applicants).
6. You will need to make two copies of the interview guide and update the correct time, date and selection panel for each interview.
Part B
1. At the times scheduled for the interview, conduct the two interviews with your assessor (playing the role of your chosen applicant) using your amended interview guide. You will need one copy of the interview guide for each applicant (to be completed electronically or in hard copy). Each interview should take 10–20 minutes. During interviews, ensure that you:
a. participate in asking questions
b. take notes of the applicants’ responses
c. give each response a score (from 0 to 5; 5 being the best response)
d. ask each applicant for referee contact details and record them in the interview guide (your assessor)
e. advise applicants of the next steps as the interview comes to a close.
2. Discuss your scores with the panel (the learner group) and come to an agreement on the best applicant for the role.
Part C
In this part, you will work individually to contact referees and prepare a selection report
1. Conduct a reference check by emailing a questionnaire to the applicant’s referee (your assessor who will act the part of the applicant’s referee). Ensure that you specify in your email who it is that you are seeking a reference for and ensure that your questionnaire seeks to determine:
a. the applicant’s employment period with the previous employer
b. the applicant’s reason for leaving the company
c. the applicant’s job responsibilities
d. issues impacting job performance
e. if the applicant supervised other employees
f. if the applicant showed an ability to handle conflict
g. what the applicant’s strengths and weakness are, based on their performance in their previous role.
2. Write a selection report that recommends an applicant for selection. In your report, include:
a. the names of the members of your selection panel
b. a summary of the process taken in Part A to identify the two strongest applicants for the role
c. a summary of how you negotiated with the selection panel to agree on the two applicants to be interviewed
d. a summary of the process taken in Part A to decide on the questions to be used in the interviews, including how the selection panel ensured that interview questions comply with relevant legislation
e. a description of your role in assisting to ensure that interview questions comply with legislative requirements
f. a description of your role in interviewing the applicant
g. a summary of how the panel came to a consensus regarding your selected applicant
h. why you recommended your selected applicant; identifying why they are suitable for the role.
3. Submit all documentation as per specifications below. Keep copies for your records.
You must:
? participate in two interviews
