Hays supports an academic move to Australia

Hays, the world's leading recruiting expert in qualified, professional and skilled people, is searching for at least 20 ambitious academics from the UK to work in Australia. The University of South Australia (UniSA), located in Adelaide, is currently looking to fill roles across a range of disciplines such as education, arts and social sciences. The university's senior managers will be hosting information seminars and road shows throughout the UK during May 2010.

Founded in 1991, UniSA is recognised as a leader in educating professionals and applied research. Its excellent reputation drives continual growth and an ongoing need to recruit forward thinking academics. Senior lecturers and professors interested in positions such as professor of clinical psychology, industrial design senior lecturer or visual communications senior lecturer should contact Hays in order to arrange face-to-face interviews.

Rachel Baldy, Manager at Hays, comments: "If you are committed to furthering your academic career, this is your opportunity to become part of a university that encourages self development and individual flair. In addition, the culture of the Australian academic sector is undoubtedly similar to the UK but with the added advantages of the warm climate and outdoor lifestyle. Successful candidates will receive financial relocation packages which will help them make the move down under."

Professor Joanne Wright, Deputy Vice Chancellor and Vice President at UniSA, comments: "The University is still at an early stage of its existence and wants to develop research and benchmark itself against the best institutions in the world. In turn, this presents a rare opportunity to join a growing university and actually make a difference. Any academic interested in these vacancies should come along to a regional road show in May to find out more."
