HR Services

Our focus is to support our employees to be the best they can possibly be to achieve Southern Cross University's strategic goals.

We do this by:

  • providing leadership and strategic direction for effective people management, making the University a workplace of shared values, distinction and productivity;
  • actively shaping and developing our workplace culture to make it highly successful and its people adaptive and responsive to change;
  • consciously creating a values-based workplace to attract, engage, develop and retain people who are committed to our values and goals, who want to make a difference and are proud of the work they undertake;
  • building excellence in our leaders and managers to lead their staff successfully;
  • providing a modern, flexible framework of HR policies, procedures and practices that ensures legal compliance, builds the strength of our workforce, recognises its needs and actively supports the achievement of the University's goals; and
  • managing the pay and employment conditions of our employees.

Our website provides you with an extensive range of resources to support this direction.
