Remuneration and Benefits

The classification for this position is Higher
Education Worker Level 6 (HEW6) which has
an annual remuneration range of $92,402 to
$100,051 pa. Which is inclusive of an annual
salary range of $$78,747 to $85,266 pa and
17% superannuation.

In July 2020 QUT staff voted in favour of a
variation to its Enterprise Agreements. The
variations were approved by the Fair Work
Commission in August 2020.



The variation impacts leave loading (for new
staff no loading will be paid or accrued during
the period the variation is in effect), salary
increases (the salary increase which was due
to occur in the first full pay period of December
2020 has been deferred until the first full pay
period of December 2021) and superannuation
(superannuation will be paid to staff as though
the salary increase which would have been
paid in December 2020 has taken effect and,
subject to the rules of the superannuation fund,
a defined benefit member will continue to make
contributions in alignment with the contributions
made by the University). A link to the variation
is here.

Beyond personal and professional fulfilment, a
career at QUT brings a broad range of tangible
benefits. With competitive remuneration
including superannuation, the University offers
real and generous benefits.

  • Reduced working year scheme

Australian success, Aboriginal Australians and

Candidates who are interested in the position

selection criteria.


In assessing merit, the panel will take into
consideration “performance or achievement
relative to opportunity”. We recognise that
many staff today have a range of personal
circumstances, and career histories that
challenge traditional ideas of a staff
member. This may mean, for example,
prioritising the quality of achievement rather
than the quantity, as considerations of part-
time employment, career interruptions and
significant periods of leave are taken into
account when assessing performance or
achievement.
