General staff mobility

Clause 61 of the CDU & Union Enterprise Agreement 2013 provides for a register to be established for general staff to express their interest in temporary employment and secondment opportunities elsewhere in the University. 

To enable you to express your interest in working in other areas of the University you will need to:

  1. Log into Jobs@cdu internal site
  2. Search for: 'General Staff Mobility & Advancement'
  3. Click "Apply Now" and follow the steps on screen

Note: Some of your information will automatically be sourced from StaffOnline into your application.

It is not necessary for you to fill in all fields but you must fill in the mandatory fields (*) as shown below:

Resident Status:*    
Visa Type:*    
Where did you first see this job advertised*   Jobs@cdu

At the Attachments section you will need to attach a Covering Letter and Resume/CV only. The covering letter needs to contain the following information:

  • the areas you would be interested in working in;
  • whether you would be willing to move to another campus, and if so which one;
  • whether you are willing to move at your current level or wish to be appointed at a higher level; and
  • what your long term career goals are in relation to Charles Darwin University.

The General Staff Mobility and Advancement Register is only available to internal applicants. The register will initially be implemented for fixed term positions.

In uploading details to the register, staff acknowledge their Resume/CV may be sent to various supervisors. The register is cleared at the end of each calendar year and a notification is sent to staff on the register that if they are still interested they need to reapply.

After discussion with applicants on the register and agreement to proceed with the secondment, a discussion must occur between the new supervisor and the current supervisor about the start date and notice period. The supervisor who is releasing the staff member to a secondment opportunity must allow the staff member to take up the secondment within three weeks of being advised of the secondment.

The PDRS form has been modified for general staff to indicate their intention to apply for mobility. This allows discussion between the current supervisor and employee so a secondment is a planned and agreed part of development for the staff member.
