There’s a certain feeling you get from working in Recruitment, its fast paced, demanding and requires a huge level of customer service and a fascination with people and their potential. At UniSA it’s the feeling that you’re a part of something special. Something significant. You’re making a real contribution – surrounded by energetic, inspiring people who are also driven to make a difference. At UniSA we believe that people are our best asset and the heart and soul of our University of Enterprise.

As a people team we are very focussed on how we add value through a connected and personally communicative style of working which we’ve coined ‘people first’.

We invest in our own growth to help others thrive and we’re curious about what’s possible when people come together around a challenge or an opportunity.
