The Position

USQ is a young, dynamic University acknowledged as a leader in providing quality academic programs in a flexible and supportive environment and is widely known for its innovative approaches to teaching and research, and for its institutional strength.

We are currently seeking an exceptional professional to join us as Deputy Vice Chancellor (Enterprise Services). USQ’s Enterprise Services Division is a newly established portfolio incorporating Human Resources, Campus Services, ICT Services and Corporate Management Services. The Division seeks to optimise the efficiency and effectiveness of key institutional services to build organisational capability and enable the University to deliver on its strategy and goals.

As a member of the senior executive team, you will provide advice and specialist support to the Vice-Chancellor and other senior executives on strategic positioning of the University’s physical, information and human resources, as well as corporate planning, reporting, risk and corporate business management activities to ensure the delivery of high quality and fit-for-purpose infrastructure to support the University’s key priorities. You will also provide the vision and strategic direction for the University’s information governance and management.

You will be recognised as a highly qualified senior leader with outstanding people, management and communication capabilities. Your knowledge of the physical, information, digital and human resource management and business operations of an organisation will be underpinned by your proven success in managing specialist infrastructure and corporate functions at an executive or director level within a service oriented environment. Further, your exceptional entrepreneurial, strategic and conceptual capabilities and capacity to contribute at a high level to strategy development in relation to the enterprise of the University will ensure your success in this key role.
