Position Classification

The Professional/General Staff Job Classification process conducted by the University is in accordance with the Charles Sturt University Enterprise Agreement 2013-2016 clause 23.

There are two application rounds per year for reviewing the classification of occupied positions that have changed significantly over the last 12 or more months.

  • Applications for Round 1 open in early February and close on 15 March. For Round 1 2018 the closing date has been extended to 30 March 2018.
  • Applications for Round 2 open in early July and close on 15 August.

Applications for Position Classification Review should only be lodged after agreement from the relevant supervisor that the duties and responsibilities of a position have changed significantly.  Job holders and/or their supervisors are encouraged to contact a trained reclassification facilitator for feedback on their draft application before submission. The current list of facilitators can be accessed from the quick link below.

Further information about position classification can be accessed through the links below as well as from What's New notices during the application period.
