Choose Work That Matters
At UNSW Canberra at ADFA, we believe what makes our people different is our desire to ‘make it matter’. This means different things depending on the role you have.
In one sense it’s about the big picture work we do here. The research and innovation that literally goes out into the world and makes a tangible difference to people’s lives. Evidenced by the fact that we’re Australia’s #1 university for impact with globally recognised academics.
But ‘making it matter’ isn’t limited to our high-profile work. It can be as simple as taking the initiative to help a student settle into uni life. Or doing your job so carefully and competently that the people who rely on you can get on with their jobs.
Because at the end of the day, we believe every single role has a ripple effect that contributes to something bigger. That’s what makes working here so meaningful, and why we’re one of the top 20 employers in Australia.
We genuinely believe flexibility is an important part of supporting and building long and rewarding careers. We offer a range of support from flexible work arrangements to generous entitlements like full gym facilities on campus.
We’re the official education provider for the Australian Defence Force and are committed to furthering the intellectual edge of our defence force. Working with us means you will play an important role in this goal. With a new city campus to host a Defence and Security Innovation Precinct you can work at a university that is doing cutting-edge research with a real world impact.
