6. Do I have to apply for positions using the EOI proforma and CV / Resume template provided on the website?

The application requirements differ depending on the position being applied for (as per the tables above). 

The EOI Proforma is required for all positions advertised by restricted EOI for impacted staff, along with a CV / resume. 

Other internally advertised positions require abbreviated selection criteria and a CV / resume.

Externally advertised positions will require abbreviated selection criteria and a CV / resume. 

The CV / resume template provided on the website is to assist those staff who do not already have a CV. It is not compulsory to use this template in your application.

The majority of the roles will be based at the St Lucia Campus, however a small number of HDR Liaison Officer positions will be based in other locations. Your location preference will be discussed with you at the interview stage.

8. What if I currently work at Gatton and am offered a position at St Lucia (or vice versa), however I don’t want to / or can't relocate?

Under the Transfer and Travel between University Locations policy staff may, in these circumstances, be eligible for a VSP. This will be discussed on a case by case basis should the situation arise. 

9. Will flexible work arrangements such as part-time appointment be maintained?

The University is committed to continuing to support flexible working arrangements for staff where possible.

Applicants are encouraged to discuss any requests to commence or continue flexible work arrangements at the interview step of the process. Any request will not impact the assessment of merit,

10. If my position is approved to be disestablished, what are my options?

Impacted staff in positions that are to be disestablished may have the following options: 

  • Express an Interest in one or more of the advertised positions in the new structure.  All available positions and the relevant recruitment processes are outlined at the top of this page.  
  • Express an Interest in taking a Voluntary Separation Package. Only impacted ongoing employees are eligible to recieve a VSP and there are a number of conditions of acceptance. There are also implications in relation to tax and superannuation. These are discussed in additional FAQs. 

Impacted staff are strongly encouraged to discuss their options with HR and the Project Leads and take advantage of the training workshops and information sessions being provided. Staff are also encouraged to seek appropriate professional and personal advice and support when considering their options.
