Melbourne is growing, our population is projected to grow from 4.5 million to almost 8 million by 2051. Victoria's population is expected to be more than 10 million by 2051.

We need to create a sustainable and resilient city that will serve us well into the future. Our Vision at LXRA is 'Delivering Great Change, Transforming the way Victorians live, work and travel'.

Position Details

Our purpose is to remove level crossings, but we are doing so much more:

We are forging new ground

We are building success in our people

We are transforming local communities

We are creating a legacy for Victoria


Who are we looking for?

We are looking for multiple Senior Stakeholder Relations and Communications Adviser positions.  If you are a communications specialist who has extensive experience building strategy,  providing senior level advice and can operate in a highly political, multidiscipline environment then we are looking for you.  We're getting bigger and we need you to engage our communities, advise our stakeholders and work together with our construction project teams so that our communications are effective, strategic and above all deliver our purpose accurately.

Why work for us?

We're currently the biggest infrastructure project in Victoria and we're smashing our milestones, creating new ways of working as we go.

We offer a unique environment with locations all over Melbourne, working with our construction partners.  That means you are “wearing two hats” literally!  From hard hat and high vis one day, to your desktop the next. On site you'll get the experience of putting theory into practice; foreseeing the issues and dealing with them first hand; before they can take hold.  You'll have the opportunity to broaden your skills, which in turn could take you to places you never expected.

How do you apply?

If you like what you've read so far, take a look at the job description above and visit our website.  Then simply click ‘Apply'.  There's a short application form to complete along with your CV,  but a cover letter or separate response to the KSC in the job description is NOT required.

We believe in inclusiveness, diversity and equality and are committed to ensuring that our workplaces are a reflection of the Victorian community. We recognise the benefits that a diverse and inclusive culture brings for our employees and in turn, encourage talented people from all backgrounds, abilities and identities to apply to our vacancies. We strongly encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, people with a disability and others from under-represented backgrounds to apply.

If you need assistance or have any questions you can contact Joanne Lewis, A/Operational Director, Stakeholder Relations and Communications on (03) 9095 4813.

Applications close midnight, Thursday 25 October 2017.
