The Global GradConnection platform is provided to you by Griffith University as a means for accessing information on international job vacancies. Please note that organisations using the Global GradConnection platform do not have a partnership with Griffith University nor are they and/or their vacancies endorsed by Griffith University. As such you are encouraged to research and verify information about an organisation and/or vacancy before you undertake an application. Some of the criteria that you should verify include: your suitability for the role, the wage/salary provided, location of the job vacancy and visa/residency requirements for the positions. Please be advised that selection criteria and eligibility for an international role may be very different from those of an Australian vacancy, and will be determined by the local legal framework and customs of the host country.
