Remuneration and Benefits

The classification for this position is Higher
Education Worker Level 8 (HEW8) which has
an annual remuneration range of $107,336 to
$121,660 pa. Which is inclusive of an annual
salary range of $$97,738 to $110,781 pa and
9.5% superannuation.

In July 2020 QUT staff voted in favour of a
variation to its Enterprise Agreements.



The variations were approved by the Fair Work
Commission in August 2020.

The variation impacts leave loading (for new
staff no loading will be paid or accrued during
the period the variation is in effect), salary
increases (the salary increase which was due
to occur in the first full pay period of December
2020 has been deferred until the first full pay
period of December 2021) and superannuation
(superannuation will be paid to staff as though
the salary increase which would have been
paid in December 2020 has taken effect and,
subject to the rules of the superannuation fund,
a defined benefit member will continue to make
contributions in alignment with the contributions
made by the University). A link to the variation
is here.

Beyond personal and professional fulfilment, a
career at QUT brings a broad range of tangible
benefits. With competitive remuneration
including superannuation, the University offers
real and generous benefits.

QUT is a high quality and flexible organisation
that is proud of its excellent employment
conditions which include but are not limited to:

  • Reduced working year scheme
  • Parental leave provisions
  • Study support encompassing leave and
financial assistance
  • Comprehensive professional development
  • Salary Packaging

Further benefits can be found at the Working at
QUT page.

Information for applicants

The position is open to applicants who have
unrestricted work rights in Australia for the
duration of the fixed-term appointment. In
support of our strategic priority of Indigenous
Australian success, Aboriginal Australians and
Torres Strait Islander people are encouraged
to apply.

For further information about the position,
please contact Julie McKenzie, Disability
Services Manager, on (07) 3138 3652; or for
further information about working at QUT
contact Human Resources on (07) 3138
4104.

Candidates who are interested in the position
are encouraged to apply even though they
may feel they are not strong on individual
selection criteria.

In assessing merit, the panel will take into
consideration “performance or achievement
relative to opportunity”. We recognise that
many staff today have a range of personal
circumstances, and career histories that
challenge traditional ideas of a staff
member. This may mean, for example,
prioritising the quality of achievement rather
than the quantity, as considerations of part-
time employment, career interruptions and
significant periods of leave are taken into
account when assessing performance or
achievement.

When applying for this position we encourage

you to provide a current CV/Resume and a

written response (maximum of half page per

criteria) outlining how you meet the selection

criteria providing specific examples and

outcomes of your achievements.
