Staff testimonials

"My favourite part about working at VU has been the opportunities I’ve been given to grow. I started in admin support for a small area and I’m now a team leader of a whole centre. I have a really great team and lots of opportunities for teamwork. When you work here you’re well supported to have a great work life balance and staff get some great benefits through our large network of partners. For me, the excitement of going to work every morning is still there even after 10 years!"

Edita, Administrative Team Leader

"I love how VU offers flexible working arrangements. I also do free personal training sessions with Masters students at the VUCER clinic. There are so many benefits to working at VU."

Caroline, Marketing & External Relations

"One of the main reasons I like working at VU is because of the people who I work alongside – a genuine group of people who care about their colleagues who also want to contribute to the success of VU and its staff and students."

Joanna, People & Culture
