Flinders University considers that being Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander is a genuine occupational requirement for this position under sub-s 56(2) of the Equal Opportunity Act 1984 (SA). The position is therefore only open to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples only.

Some out-of-hours work (evenings and weekends) will be required. Due to the nature of the position opportunities for leave may be limited at some times between December to March and June to September. Intra and Interstate travel may be required.
