UQ Jobs


Work type


As you may be aware, UQ Jobs was temporarily taken offline due to a data security breach at PageUp – our third party recruitment platform.

PageUp’s security consultants have confirmed that they have not identified any further threats and that PageUp is safe to use. Based on the outcome of that investigation and additional security improvements by PageUp to guard against similar incidents in the future, UQ is satisfied with the security of the system and has reinstated access to UQ Jobs.

As a safety measure, UQ requested a reset of all user passwords. In order to protect your personal account details, the next time you login to UQ Jobs, you will be prompted to set a new password. As good practice, UQ recommends that you do not re-use passwords, or use the same password across multiple systems.

More information about the data breach can be found on the PageUp website.
