  • We are focusing on the future. You can help us shape the experience of higher education
  • Join a Go8 university that’s globally recognised for making an impact
  • Be inspired by the talent and passion of colleagues and students

UNSW isn’t like other places you’ve worked. Yes, we’re a large organisation with a diverse and talented community; a community doing great things. But what makes us different isn’t what we do, it’s how we do it. Together, we are driven to be thoughtful, practical, and purposeful in all we do.

Why your role matters:  

The UNSW Business School is one of Australia’s leading business schools. We seek to make a difference by equipping our graduates and stakeholders to find better ways to create sustainable economic and social value. We are achieving this through innovative research and transformative learning in collaboration with our business, government, university and community partners in Australia and globally.

The Academic Quality Project Officer is located within the UNSW Business School’s Education Portfolio. The role is part of a team that actively contributes to achievement of the education goals of both the Business School and UNSW.


The Academic Quality Project Officer has responsibility for a range of initiatives that align with UNSW’s education quality procedure and framework. The framework is designed to enhance and ensure the quality of student outcomes and the student education experience. In particular, the role is responsible for the collection, analysis, visualisation, reporting and management of education-related data. This data, in turn, helps to assure student learning, inform curriculum revision and drive continuous improvement. It also plays an essential part in maintaining our international accreditations (AACSB and EQUIS).

The Academic Quality Project Officer reports to the Manager, Academic Quality Assurance. You will work collaboratively with colleagues from across the Portfolio, the wider Business School and relevant sections of the University.

This position is being offered as continuing full time, with a flexible blend of working remotely and from the vibrant UNSW Kensington Campus.
