The University of Newcastle, Australia

Eligibility

We welcome applications from Australian and overseas applicants to work at UoN. However, before you submit your application, please check which categories you are eligible to apply for.

  • Domestic applicants only

To apply for these positions you must be an Australian or New Zealand citizen or Australian permanent resident at the time of the closing date.

  • Sponsorship for overseas applicants

The University of Newcastle is an approved employer sponsor who can nominate overseas applicants for Temporary Business visa (subclass 457) (PDF 186KB) and Permanent Residency visa (subclass 186).

Offers of employment to overseas applicants are subject to the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) granting approval before you start employment for permanent residency or an appropriate temporary work visa. Applicants must notify the University of any immigration restrictions that may limit them from fulfilling the terms of any contract of employment offered.

Overseas applicants for most full-time academic and research positions may be eligible for employer sponsored migration. In these cases, Human Resource Services will liaise with the Department of Immigration and Citizenship.

  • Fixed-term positions

For some fixed term positions, applicants must be Australian or New Zealand citizens, Australian permanent residents or hold a valid temporary visa at the time of the closing date which allows the applicant to work the required hours set out for the duration of the fixed term appointment.

  • University staff

Some positions advertised are open only to University of Newcastle staff. To apply for these positions you must, at the time the position is advertised, be a current staff member of the University (ongoing, fixed term or casual) and hold a valid work visa.

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders

Being of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander descent is a genuine occupational qualification for these positions and is authorised under Section 14(d) of the New South Wales Anti-Discrimination Act 1977.
