Salary benefits

With a career at Deakin, you'll find benefits like annual increments to your salary, generous superannuation and additional leave at Christmas.

Annual increments

A staff member who performs satisfactorily in their role will receive an annual salary increment until they reach the top of the relevant salary classification.


All staff receive a minimum 9.5% employer contribution to superannuation, and we offer up to 17% superannuation depending on the type and length of appointment. You can also make additional contributions to superannuation pre-tax or post-tax.

Recreation leave loading

You will receive 17.5% leave loading on any accrued recreation leave. This is paid in a lump sum at the end of the year.
