Searching For Jobs

What’s the best way to do a job search?

Select either “Academic and Research” or “Professional and General” from the list of position categories. Then scroll down the list to see the current vacancies for each category.

How do I hear about positions that interest me?

Setting up a Job Alert will ensure you receive an email alerting you to vacancies that contain specific keywords you have selected to customise your search e.g. location, finance, administration etc. You can choose to receive the email daily, weekly or monthly.

Who do I contact if I am having trouble registering, searching or applying for jobs online?

For information about a specific position, please contact the HR person nominated in the Position Description attachment. For all other enquiries, please contact the eRecruitment team on (08) 8302 1700 or hrservices@unisa.edu.au

How often are new jobs posted on your website?

New jobs are posted almost daily. Setting up a Job Alert is the most efficient way to hear of new vacancies.

I no longer wish to receive Job Alerts from UniSA. How can I be removed from Job Alerts?

Once you have registered, you can login to My Job Alert through your candidate portal and change or remove any previously created alerts.

What is the length of time a job remains posted?

It varies. The closing date is posted on the Job List, and if you have started an application, you will receive an email reminder 3 days before the closing date.

Can I apply for more than one job at a time?

You may apply for numerous jobs concurrently as each job is managed by the local recruiter. Be mindful of how well your skills and qualifications match the Position Description to ensure a greater chance of success and to avoid disappointment.

Can I submit my resume just in case a suitable job becomes available?

You are invited to “Register Your Interest” in working at UniSA. Simply go to the link from the Jobs List and complete the online form. This new version takes a little longer to complete but provides UniSA with filtering options to narrow the search for applicants with specific skills and qualifications.

Can I apply for a job that no longer appears on the website?

If a job is not visible on the website, it is past the closing date for applications. However, you may still wish to “Register your Interest” – see previous question.

How can I see which jobs I have applied for?

By logging into your candidate portal and selecting My History, you can see any jobs for which you have applied

Do I need an email address?

Yes, your email address is your Logon ID and also our primary method of contact with you so please check your emails regularly. Ensure that this is correct, current, reliable and accessible. Some web-based email systems can become 'full' quite quickly. Make sure you understand any limitations that may apply to your email account. Please be aware your email address is a unique identifier to you in our system, so family and friends will not be able to use it for other applications with UniSA. They can set up a free email address through Hotmail or Gmail.
