Day to day, you'll be a key source of strategic communications advice within the business, and ensure our messaging and branding is consistently applied.

What's more you'll become part of the Office of the CEO and a talented team of people who are passionate about doing work that matters.

Here's what we're looking for: 

  • Strategic communications experience
  • Strong collaboration and stakeholder management skills
  • Excellent writer and storyteller
  • Digital marketing and campaign management experience
  • Excellent planning and organisational skills, with a demonstrated ability to meet deadlines and work in a busy environment
  • Proficient with the Microsoft Office suite of products and contemporary communication tools and channels
  • Proficient in Adobe Creative Cloud apps – in particular InDesign, Photoshop and Acrobat Pro (desirable)
  • Bachelor or Master's in communications, marketing or public relations or equivalent experience in a senior corporate public affairs or communications role
  • Understanding of the Victorian public sector preferred

We encourage people from all genders, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people with disabilities, and people from culturally diverse backgrounds to apply.
