in Australia. Former QUT staff members who
were employed at 23 April 2020 are also
eligible to apply for this position. Please
indicate your eligibility within the application
questions. In support of our strategic priority
of Indigenous Australian success, Aboriginal

Candidates who are interested in the position
are encouraged to apply even though they

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.
