You make CDU.

We think differently. We innovate and embrace change. We challenge conventions and look for better ways.  We believe it’s the unique experiences, perspectives and opinions our staff and students bring that help make us a truly unique institution.

We are a deeply connected university, working in partnership and collaboration with First Nations peoples, our communities and industries, government, and alumni to address the needs of the Northern Territory and regional, rural, and remote people nationally and globally.

With our home and our heart in the Northern Territory, we embrace the inclusive, resilient and courageous spirit of the NT in our campuses and delivery sites that span a diverse footprint from the capital cities of Darwin, Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney; to the regional hubs of Alice Springs, Palmerston and Katherine; our remote locations in Nhulunbuy, Tennant Creek and Yulara; and on Country - in community, with community.

We are now seeking a new Director, First Nations Leadership who will play a critical part in supporting the Deputy-Vice Chancellor, First Nations Leadership and Engagement in providing University-wide leadership and direction to attaining our goal to ‘be the most recognised university for Australian First Nations training, education and research’.

The Director will be integral to setting a culture that lives and breathes our values and principles including our commitment of ‘honouring Australian First Nations knowledges and cultures’. The Director will drive community engagement and deep and genuine relationships with First Nations students, their families, communities, organisations, peak bodies and other Traditional Owners, in relation to the implementation of the University’s First Nations Leadership goals and aspirations.

The Director is a member of the Vice-Chancellor’s Advisory Committee (VCAC) and will work closely with VCAC and CDU Associate Vice-Chancellors in the development of CDU’s Northern Territory regional centres, as they relate to First Nations educational and business opportunities.

For further information and a confidential discussion, please contact Natalie Walker who is advising the University on this appointment.
