Vacancies

Charles Sturt University uses the PageUp recruitment system to manage job applications and candidate information. This means certain personal information applicants provide when applying for a job with CSU will be hosted on PageUp’s systems. See the PageUp FAQs for further information provided to job seekers.

Following a security incident in May 2018 involving PageUp’s systems, CSU temporarily ceased using PageUp to process job applications. This was a precaution whilst cybersecurity experts investigated the incident. See more information in PageUp’s statement.

PageUp’s security consultants have confirmed that they have not identified any further threats within PageUp’s systems and that PageUp is safe to use. Based on the outcome of that investigation and additional security improvements made by PageUp to mitigate the risks of similar future attacks, CSU has reinstated the PageUp recruitment system.
