Apply your leadership experience and extensive marketing expertise to drive international student recruitment growth.


Join a university that is leading the return of international students and ranked in the top 100 universities globally for quality education*. We are a new world university. Like our namesake, Charles Darwin, we think differently. We innovate, embrace change, challenge conventions and look for better ways. We care about people as individuals, and about our wider society. We cannot build a new world without diversity of thought, so we bring together people with unique perspectives in an inclusive and supporting learning environment to help them connect, discover and grow. This is the CDU difference.


CDU Global provides leadership and strategic advice to support management and executive level decision making in relation to international engagement and works closely with key university academic and administrative units and external stakeholders.  The Office is responsible to the Deputy Vice-Chancellor for strategic leadership, development and management of the University’s international goals and international activities, including international marketing and promotions, recruitment and admission of international students, international student support, legislative compliance, international partnerships, and relationships with foreign government departments and other agencies.


As the Associate Director, International Marketing and Recruitment, you will lead the strategic development and delivery of an integrated international marketing and student recruitment plan, guiding a multidisciplinary, distributed team of student recruitment and marketing professionals to deliver customer-centric strategies focused on lead generation, conversion and effective marketing communications.


Using new and existing digital marketing channels, you will extend CDU’s reach for student recruitment purposes, through content marketing, social media engagement and activation, SEM, SEO, website development projects, mobile optimisation, campaigns and lead generation.


Postgraduate qualifications in a relevant area or an equivalent combination of tertiary education and relevant experience will be essential for your success. A sound business acumen and strong leadership skills will be highly regarded, as will the ability to develop and implement operational plans and the initiative to implement strategies and processes to grow international student numbers and enhance stakeholder engagement.
