Working with us
Working with us means you are contributing to making a difference in your community.
At ECU, we are committed to breaking down barriers to education helping more Western Australians to reach their potential.
Our focus is on research and teaching that makes a difference to the communities we serve and we have established a vibrant research culture attracting a range of quality research partners and researchers, many working at the cutting edge of their fields.
We provide innovative and practical courses to more than 21,000 students across two Perth metropolitan campuses at Joondalup and Mount Lawley and our regional South West Campus in Bunbury. Our connection with the rest of the world is through our strong cohort of international students from over 90 countries.
Our culture of inclusiveness stems from the inspiration of Edith Dircksey Cowan, championing the empowerment of women in the workforce, embracing Australia’s cultural and Indigenous diversity and pioneering accessible entry pathways for students.
Working with us means you’ll work with likeminded people who value education for all and research that makes a difference.
At ECU, our staff are guided by the values of integrity, respect, rational inquiry and personal excellence and we expect that staff will emulate the same attributes that we seek to instil in our graduates, those being:
- ability to communicate;
- ability to work in teams;
- critical appraisal skills;
- ability to generate ideas; and
- a cross-cultural and international outlook.
