Remote induction

If you are joining RMIT while we are working remotely, we have put together a comprehensive remote induction guide to lead you through your first 30 days. Your manager will share more about this on your first day. If you have any questions, please contact your Talent Acquisition contact.

The health and safety of the RMIT community is our absolute priority and as the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation evolves, we are continuing to take the advice and guidance of relevant authorities.

At this stage campuses remain closed, so you should not attend campus on your first day.

In 2021 we look forward to embracing a hybrid of remote and on campus working. As such, all employees, inclusive of new starters, are required to complete the Covid Safe Training and familiarise themselves with protocols in relation to a safe return to campus. Your manager will be in touch to discuss how you can access the training either before your first day or on your first day.
