Current and recent projects include:

  • implementing new CRM and ESM systems

  • rollout of Microsoft 365 and Teams soft telephony
  • redevelopment of the University's student record system
  • introduction of a new research costing tool
  • moving further into the cloud with Microsoft Azure.

We're a highly motivated team of professional technical and administrative employees made up of a diverse group of people from all walks of life.

We have an agile working culture to support our staff to work flexibly and balance the demands of their role with their personal circumstances. As well as a competitive salary and extensive benefits including a generous relocation package, you'll have access to wellbeing, an attractive pension scheme, generous annual leave, and learning and development support to ensure you thrive at ARU.
