Code of conduct
Our code of conduct is centred around five core values. It provides a blueprint for how staff and students should act and make decisions.
Managers can recruit staff using either competitive selection or direct appointment. The method you use depends on the requirements of the position. Permanent and fixed-term positions over 12 months must use competitive selection, whereas casual and short-term staff can be direct appointed.

The following recruitment process is for recruitment of:
The process for recruitment of research staff from non-operating funds is slightly different. They are not considered as contingent staff. See the guideline for more information.
Sometimes managers or supervisors might need to recruit someone quickly for a short period of time or irregular work. By using our casual and short-term appointment process you do not need to undergo the full recruitment process. However you should contact your HR Business Partner to get advice on the process.
This recruitment process can be used for:
- UoN employment pack (PDF, 635KB) that includes proof of their right to work in Australia
- Tax file number declaration form
- Superannuation form
- Current resume
Managers can employ independent contractors to carry out a specific project or piece of work. This type of recruitment is not normally used for teaching duties.
There are a range of requirements that need to be satisfied before employing an independent contractor. See the Engagement of Contractors and Consultants Procedure for more information.
Secondments can be mutually beneficial to both the staff member and UoN. Secondments can provide a rich professional development opportunity and new network of contacts for the staff member. While UoN sees operational benefits in building capacity, strengthening skill sets, enhancing performance, meeting future business needs and succession planning.
Secondments are generally between six and 12 months and are available for ongoing full-time and ongoing part-time staff. A secondment may be extended but the maximum length of a continuous secondment is two years.
If you are interested in hosting a secondment or are looking for a secondment opportunity for a member of your team please contact your HR Business Partner PDF, 36KB.
