This role is critical in assisting with the delivery of services for students. Working as part of a team within Student Services, this position provides direct and indirect support for students. Amplifiying the impact of our services is one part of the role and this is done through supporting teams who are in the direct service provision role. This role is largely in the support function but you may also be delivering services directly.

The person

You will have a degree from a recognised university with substantial experience in student administration or an equivalent combination of relevant experience and/or education/training within a direct service support function or heavily administrative protrame. For a higher level appointment, additional experience, as outlined in the PD is required.


You should have a strong desire to work collaboratively and in partnership with colleagues and students to create and deliver a program of activity that enhances the student experience for all students at UQ.


Some of our work involves supporting the international student supervision scheme for students under 18 years old, as such a second language in line with the cultural diversity of our students would be an advantage.


The University of Queensland values diversity and inclusion and actively encourages applications from those who bring diversity to the University. Please refer to the University’s Diversity and Inclusion webpage ( for further information and points of contact if you require additional support.
