Provide strategic advice and policy analysis to help support regional engagement at CDU.


We are a new world university. Like our namesake, Charles Darwin, we think differently. We innovate, embrace change, challenge conventions and look for better ways. We’re not about tradition or legacy, privilege or exclusivity. We care about people as individuals, and about our wider society. We’re about what we can give to the world, rather than what we take. We cannot build a new world without diversity of thought, so we bring together people with unique perspectives in an inclusive and supporting learning environment to help them connect, discover and grow. This is the CDU difference.


As a Regional Engagement Strategic Projects Officer, you will provide policy analysis, advice and strategic project management in the development and implementation of the regional engagement and development strategy at CDU. You will assist in the planning and implementation of continual improvement activities which assist the directorate in meeting its strategic priorities and operational goals.


As the successful applicant you will possess a degree qualification or relevant experience equivalent to completion of a degree (minimum 4 years) and you’ll have demonstrated knowledge and experience of Federal and State tertiary education and training policy settings and regulatory frameworks. Your high level interpersonal and communication skills will enable you to liaise on complex issues with senior management and a range of internal and external stakeholders and demonstrating a high degree of initiative you’ll be able to work autonomously in a busy environment.
