All employees working in Australia must either be permanent residents or have a valid working visa to cover the period of employment. We may choose to offer sponsorship to overseas candidates depending on the role and eligibility.
Offers of employment to overseas applicants are subject to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection granting approval for permanent residency or an appropriate temporary work visa to cover the period of employment. We encourage you to familiarise yourself with the Australian immigration requirements as early as possible. Please contact the People Portfolio to discuss your circumstances.
The length of our selection process can vary, depending on the position, availability of panel members and number of applications. However, we aim to keep you informed about the progress of your application as much as possible. You will receive a confirmation email when we have received your application and all candidates will be notified once shortlisting has been conducted. Following the conclusion of interviews unsuccessful applicants will be notified via email.
We are committed to recruiting and retaining a high-quality workforce and perform pre-employment checks to ensure the suitability and integrity of our people. If you are being recommended for employment, we will contact you following your interview and talk you through the process. Find out more about our pre-employment checks in our step-by-step recruitment process.
If you are invited to an interview, we suggest that you begin organising your referees. Should we wish to explore your suitability for the role further after your interview, you will be asked to provide details of your referees, one of which should include your current supervisor. Please note that we will not contact your referees without your approval to do so; nor will we do so prior to interview stage.
We are committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive culture and we continue to build a workforce that represents the cultures and communities we serve. Our strength as a University lies in our people, and we welcome and value everyone’s unique perspectives.
