Application assessment

The University is an Equal Opportunity employer. Selection to advertised positions is based on merit, which means that the person judged most able to perform the duties of the position will be appointed to the position. The principle of equity is applied to the University's recruitment and selection practices, which means that the University will seek to create conditions under which all persons will have an equal opportunity to seek and obtain employment.


Once you have successfully submitted an application through our online system, you will receive an automatically generated acknowledgement email sent to the email address registered in your profile.


A Selection Panel is established for each vacant position at the University. After applications have closed, the panel will meet over the next two weeks to assess each application against the selection criteria required for the position. In the event that the shortlisting process is delayed beyond the usual two week period, a notification will be sent to you via your registered email address.

Your application will be reviewed by all members of the selection panel and rated against the selection criteria for the position. On the basis of these ratings, the selection panel will decide which applicants meet the selection criteria sufficiently to be placed on a short list for interview.

If you have been successful in obtaining an interview, you will be contacted by telephone by a member of the Human Resourced Department to schedule an interview. Confirmation of the interview and relevant details will also be sent to the email address registered in your profile.

If you need any special access or support requirements to attend the interview (eg accessible parking or adaptive equipment), make sure you advise the person arranging the interview.

If you have not been successful in obtaining an interview, you will be advised via email.
