At the University’s 70th birthday, the Vice-Chancellor indicated that “ANU will lead the country in changing the way that universities admit students. Students applying to ANU will be considered on the whole person, not just their ATAR score. Students applying to ANU will have co-curriculum and community contributions recognised as part of their entrance criteria. Our scholarship program will be national and take into account outstanding academic results, non-academic achievement and financial need. These changes will be implemented over the next several years, and will enable students applying to ANU to also apply for scholarships and accommodation, all at the same time.” 

We are looking for someone to play a key role in realising the Vice-Chancellor’s vision. This role acts as a key player in the project team to realise this vision, acting as a subject matter expert to liaise between our admissions office and vendor, and working on key governance papers to drive decisions by the university. You will have an understanding of undergraduate admissions that will allow you to take ownership of a number of deliverables, whilst working as part of a close-knit team on a high profile project. 

If this inspires you, we would welcome an application.
