The position of Occupational Health and Safety Manager forms part of the Office of the Chief Executive Officer within the Victorian Fisheries Authority (VFA).

The Office of the Chief Executive Officer supports the CEO in managing the day to day operations of the VFA, particularly for financial and other corporate service functions. The office plays a leading role in supporting the effective operation of the VFA Board and committees by providing secretariat and other services. The office further supports the VFA operating divisions by leading on strategy, planning, risk, reporting, key corporate and governance functions and supporting general business operations.

Reporting directly to the Chief Operating Officer, the Occupational Health and Safety Manager will lead the implementation of the VFA's agreed OHS Strategic Plan and manage the day to day OHS activities across the organisation. This role will involve recognising positive performance and safe behaviours as well as speaking up and calling out unsafe behaviours and working with leaders to drive a cultural change in the prioritisation of safety.

While this role will not initially have direct reports, as the OHS Strategic Plan is implemented it is anticipated that roles may report to the OHS Manager.

To be successful you will have proven OHS management experience with demonstrated ability in developing and implementing OHS plans, process and systems ideally in an organisation with regionally based offices and outdoor field personnel. An ability and passion to educate and influence behaviours and values to ensure a safe culture is required with strong communication skills essential. You will be results orientated, highly motivated and enjoy building and developing effective stakeholder relationships.
