JCU CareerHub is the University’s official online job board that enables you to advertise employment opportunities to students. Students and recent graduates have exclusive password secure access to the system.

CareerHub has approximately 6000 student logins per month.

Click here to view courses offered at JCU if you are seeking specific skills, but keep in mind that students are multi-talented and there may be students who suit your needs in other course areas.

You are asked to let JCU Careers and Employability know as soon as the vacancy is filled, so the vacancy can be removed from JCU CareerHub. Employers who enter their own vacancies on the JCU CareerHub are asked to remove vacancy advertisements once the position is filled.

Opportunities that do not adhere to the Fair Work Act will not be published. Please see the Fair Work website for more information.
