The information that you provide will be kept for a maximum period of 12 months (the academic year).

Applications will be held in our casual academic register, and will be available to be viewed for possible opportunities by School of Information Technology Unit Chairs and Campus Coordinators.

If there is an opportunity, you may be contacted by the Unit Chair or Campus Coordinator to discuss your expression of interest further.

Following agreement between both parties, employment documentation will be sent to you electronically for completion and signing.

An expression of interest does not guarantee that you will be employed as a casual academic staff member.

Working with Children Check

Please note that all casual academic staff who are employed to undertake teaching require a current Working with Children Check (WWCC) before they commence work.

Deakin University is required to meet Victorian Government legislation relating to child wellbeing and safety (‘child safe standards’), and as a result of this legislative requirement the University Executive made the decision that all current casual academic and professional staff whose roles involve the possible current or future contact with children and young people under 18 years (including oral, written or electronic communication) as part of their work will be required to provide the University with a current Employee Working with Children Check (WWCC).
