The University of Queensland is one of a number of organisations possibly affected by a data security incident at the cloud-based human resources provider PageUp.

UQ, which uses PageUp to manage job applications and basic candidate information, has temporarily suspended the job application system as a precaution. As a result, closing dates for positions were extended to ensure no candidates are disadvantaged. 

UQ is currently accepting job applications via the following email address - Please submit your application with the job title and job number in the subject line.

UQ takes data security extremely seriously and has sought further information from PageUp about the nature and extent of any impact. 

UQ recommends that anyone who has used our online recruitment system should check there has been no unusual activity concerning their personal information. It is best practice to reset passwords and not re-use old passwords, or the same password across multiple systems.

People concerned about the issue should go to the Incident FAQs on the PageUp website. For further queries, please contact To submit a job application, please email and include the job title and job number in the subject line.
