Throughout 2018, RMIT will be introducing more consistent and supportive processes relating to
casual employment.

Currently, changes have been made that will impact staff when recruiting and on-boarding casual
employees (regardless of whether they are required in an Academic, Vocational Education or
professional capacity) as well as all those interested (currently and/or potentially) in being employed
on a casual basis at RMIT.


What’s Changing

  •  Whenever there is a position to be filled, an online requisition form must be submitted and
    approved in RMIT’s recruitment system (PageUp) rather than via the CA 04/05 form
  •  Casual employees need to register in RMIT’s talent pool and submit compliance
    documentation on PageUp
  •  Staff e-numbers can only be created via PageUp not via SAP Desktop Manager
  •  RMIT have invested in a dedicated Casual Recruitment Team to support staff with the
    recruitment and on-boarding of all casual employees


What’s Not Changing

  •  Workforce planning / identification of a need to recruit a casual employee
  •  Manner in which casual employee hours are collected and approved in SAP and ESS
  •  Process for generating / requesting systems and building access for casual employees
  •  Process for recruiting contractors (who are paid by invoice rather than by RMIT Payroll)
