An organisation I want to work for has advertised several new roles, all in the same department with varying accountabilities. One is more senior to the others, and is the one I really want, and feel I am qualified for. However, I would still be quite happy with one or two of the other roles.

What do you think would be the best way to approach this? Should I write separate applications (bearing in mind they have some selection criteria in common, so I would be repeating myself), or apply for the role I really want with a note that I would be interested in the others as well?

Is there an internal recruiter that is handling these two roles?
I am friends with ours and they are very upset when candidates do not tell them that they applied to different roles and think that they will not find out.
I think you can if possible discuss with the hiring manager/recruiter that would be a good thing to do.

I might be too late responding, I work in gov and you have to apply for each one seperatately even though they have the same criteria

This. You need to treat each position invidually.
I applied for two positions which are essentially the same (except one is on a higher pay level) and got an interview and offer for both.

I know it feels strange to repeat yourself, but they are separate roles.
