With a culturally diverse campus life and extensive international exchange and research programs, UTS prepares graduates for the workplaces of today and tomorrow.   


We are looking for a Health and Wellbeing Partner to join the team in our Human Resources Unit.  As part of a collaborative team, you will provide expert advice and support to staff, supervisors and managers regarding health management for both work-related and non-work related injuries and illnesses.  You will leverage your knowledge and experience to facilitate and manage return to work programs, complex workers compensation claims and medical retirements.  You will also support our Return to Work Coordinator in the operational aspects of the workers’ compensation function for the University.  This role has a strong focus on early intervention and prevention, particularly in relation to psychological injury.


You will also have the opportunity to contribute to the strategic and operational support for the University’s Health and Wellbeing Program and in particular our Mental Health Strategy.

  • Special knowledge of psychosocial risks and hazards in the workplace and of Workers Compensation and Injury management legislation
  • Confidence to effectively build and manage professional relationships with internal clients at all levels of the organisation
  • Previous experience in occupational rehabilitation, psychological injury management and RTW co-ordination
  • Experience in complex case management in mental health.

The role would suit someone with experience as a rehabilitation consultant assisting employees back into their substantive roles.  You will bring considerable coaching skills and a demonstrated understanding of the implications of mental health issues in the workplace.  You will have a relevant degree, ideally in psychological occupational rehabilitation and/or organisational psychology with registration as a psychologist. 

This is a rare opportunity to move into an internal Health and Wellbeing role and to work with a strong, dynamic and collaborative team in one of Australia’s top Universities.
