Full time job vacancies generally appear in major newspapers. Some casuals (like instrumental music teachers) usually sourced via the network of colleagues in the field, or you can leave a resume with admin in case anything comes up.

Leadership team is very cliquey and secretive. Often makes decisions to suit themselves that are quite detrimental to specialist areas because they haven't got a clue how things work - nor do they ask. (eg, they will hire a Head of Arts/Program Leader without having the most experienced person from that area at the interview, or at least getting someone of similar position in from another college to ensure that the right questions are asked). Those that know how the system works keep to themselves and stick together. Get on the wrong side of Leadership and you're black-listed - no promotional opportunities for you. (Have not been a victim of this, but have witnessed it on at least 4 occasions).
