  • Creating and developing strong relationships with key stakeholders across the organisation including Executive Leadership Team, third party contractors, consultants and community groups
  • Implementing a strong framework of best practice policies and procedures to ensure efficient reporting on project financials, progress and data.

The Applicant:

  • Experience working within a State or Local Government body highly desirable
  • An understanding of the relevant legislative requirements and standards
  • A track record of developing excellent rapport with a broad range of stakeholders and community groups
  • Experience setting up governance frameworks, processes and procedures, ideally within a greenfield context

Benefits to you:
