Secondment opportunities

At Deakin we are always looking at ways of offering secondment (internal mobility) opportunities for staff to grow and support their career development goals. Vacancies that are fixed-term appointments could potentially be an opportunity for a current staff members to grow their skills and knowledge at the University with the support of their manager.

The academic study program is a professional development opportunity for academic staff to take time out from their normal duties to pursue research or scholarly work outside the university.

Study support

We also provide some financial assistance and study leave for staff undertaking an approved course of study (to gain a tertiary qualification).
