Position Details

The Country Fire Authority (CFA) is one of the world's largest, and most highly regarded community based emergency services organisations. We respond to fire and other emergencies 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Whilst our firefighters are the cornerstone of CFA services, what goes on behind the scenes is just as important in helping to protect lives and property.

The Volunteers and Strategy directorate consists of four business units responsible for Business Intelligence (BI), Volunteer Sustainability, Strategy Capability and Innovation and Performance Improvement. 

The primary purpose of the Manager BI is to produce high quality business intelligence insights for the CFA Executive to inform strategy, business planning and decision making. This position will manage a team of professionals and specialists to undertake high level analysis and reporting to provide insights into the organisation and inform future direction and strategic planning. The Manager BI will oversee the design, implementation and evaluation of business intelligence, and standards for data management to support the achievement of CFA objectives. 

The successful applicant will have:

  • Tertiary qualifications or equivalent demonstrated experience in IT, business intelligence or business analysis related discipline.
  • Experience leading and managing a Business Intelligence function with experience in the utilisation of BI tools.
  • Well-developed interpersonal skills with the ability to build and maintain effective partnerships across the business.
  • Strong problem solving skills with the ability to make informed decisions under pressure and tight timeframes.
  • Strong understanding of theories, principles, processes, practices and tools relating to data analysis, quality, management and governance.
  • Strong team management and leadership skills with the ability to build a team culture focused on service delivery and partnerships across CFA.
  • Understanding of Geospatial Intelligence Systems would be an advantage.
