Ok at USQ

Uni Southern Queensland wants to cut jobs, just not many, and only volunteers

The university is accepting applications for voluntary separations, but only 40 staff will get to go. And only if they can be spared without “unreasonable impact” on operations or workloads.

The savings aren’t to cover losses but to fund investment. “Our revenue profile is favourable and we have achieved a better than expected result this year. We want to maintain and build on this strong position to ensure our future growth over the coming decade,” Vice Chancellor Geraldine Mackenzie says.
