We are focused on recruiting exceptional people. We search globally to get the right person for the job.
With our UoN Career Advantage, competitive salaries, range of benefits and great lifestyle we offer an attractive employment package. We also provide a range of services to assist international applicants to immigrate and relocate to Australia:
The University of Newcastle is an approved employer sponsor who can nominate overseas applicants for Temporary Business visa (subclass 457) and Permanent Residency visa (subclass 186).
Depending on the classification level of the appointment, we may engage the services of an Immigration Lawyer to assist with the employer nomination and/or application process. The University also has a dedicated Visa Team and access to Immigration Lawyers who can assist with your immigration queries.
Visa conditions and obligations are subject to change, please see the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) for up to date information.
For additional information on moving to Australia please see Beginning Life in Australia.
We understand that attending an interview can be costly if you are not from the area. In most cases, we will meet travel and accommodation costs incurred as part of the interview process for senior professional and academic appointments. We will also contribute to relocation costs.
The University can organise quotes from removal companies and guide you through this process. We also have access to relocation specialists who can assist with advice on housing, schools and tours of the region.
