Probationary Period

It is a common procedure at UNSW for newly appointed General staff to have the continuing status of their appointment confirmed after a period of time during which their ability to perform the duties of the position is assessed.  During your probationary period your supervisor should regularly assess your performance to ensure that you are making the necessary progress. You must ensure that you make every effort to attain all of the relevant knowledge and skills that you need to acheive satisfactory performance in your role. There is a lot of support around the university to help you, including having regular discussions with your supervisor. It is recommended that you create an action plan for your probationary period at UNSW.
When will I be reviewed?
The timing of your probation reviews will depend on your role and you should agree this up front with your supervisor.  Your probation review discussions should be documented using the Professional & Tecnical Staff Probation (HR57)
For further information about the UNSW probation policy relevant to you, please see the HR website. Your HR Consultant and supervisor are also available for advice.
