About the role

As our projects and legacy grows, so does our team! That's why our North-Western Alliance is on the hunt for a brand new Land & Property Adviser to join their fast-paced, results driven team. As a Land and Property Adviser, you will be responsible for supporting the facilitation and management of all matters relating to the identification, leasing and management of property matters and where necessary, disposal and acquisition of land for project purposes.

The role provides excellent career growth opportunities on major infrastructure projects, with professional development front of mind for the land and property discipline. You will also get to collaborate with a range of internal and external experts in VicTrack, VicRoads, Department of Transport, Department of Treasury and Finance, Valuer General Victoria, Victorian Government Land Monitor, Local Government and more. 

As our new Land & Property Adviser you will:

  • Provide guidance to project teams on land and property matters in consideration to both private, government and Crown land.
  • Undertake land and property tasks for site identification - such as title searches, investigating land status and identifying project survey needs.
  • Manage assets and land within the project area – this includes but is not limited to negotiating lease agreements, maintaining a property/asset register and preparing Lease Amendment Deeds and Plans.

The Land and Property Adviser position offers a 3-year fixed term contract, paying between $102,637 and $124,183 + super. LXRP fully supports the new hybrid way of life and envision this role as a weekly blend of CBD office and working from home. 


About you

We are interested in people with experience in a range of land and property related disciplines such as property valuation, land planning, conveyancing, land and asset management, property surveying or government land processes. Experience in managing land and property issues within a major project environment, including private and Crown land is considered highly desirable, but not mandatory.

You MUST be confident in your ability to work autonomously, have demonstrated experience taking initiative in project work and understand the importance of building meaningful relationships with relevant stakeholders. Exposure utilising or understanding the project delivery powers under Major Transport Projects Facilitation Act 2009 is a huge advantage, but not mandatory.

Let's get technical! What will we expect from you?

  • Exposure and understanding of legislation, policies and processes relating to land management, valuation, acquisition and/or land disposal.
  • Proficient with the Microsoft Office suite of applications, familiar with GIS mapping and experience with the Property Information Management System (PIMS) would be beneficial to the role.  
  • Relevant tertiary qualification in property, surveying, urban planning or a similar discipline is beneficial to the role but not mandatory.

We are looking for individuals who have a strong sense of purpose in helping the LXRP team deliver on transforming the way Victorians live, work and travel.

  • We use our role as leaders in the transport sector to provide secure pathways into the industry for women, people who identify as LGBTQIA+, people living with a disability, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, refugees or asylum seekers and people facing barriers to employment.
  • We offer and encourage flexible work practices and purchased leave arrangements for all of our employees to support wellbeing, family or carer commitments or other personal circumstances.
