What Does 'Casual Eligibility List' Mean?

  • If successful, you will remain on the Casual Eligibility List whilst you are actively engaged for duties. Following a period of 12 months without being engaged for duties, you will be removed from the Casual Eligibility List and will need to reapply for any opportunities as they arise
  • If successful, being on the Casual Eligibility List means that you will be considered for teaching duties within Academic Pathways, subject to timetabling requirements and/or for relief opportunities
  • Before the commencement of each term you will be provided with the opportunity to complete an 'availability survey' to indicate preferred working hours/days, your timetable will be dependent on operational needs matched with your availability.
  • The timetable is subject to change throughout each term and as a result there can be no guarantee of hours.
