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 Coordinator Learning and Development contributes to the design, development, implementation and evaluation of programs that encourage, maintain and strengthen the capability of volunteers and enhance their role within delivery of CFA services.

Coordinators provide direct support and advice to the Lead Regional Learning and Development to ensure consistency and standardisation of L&D practice. They work closely with F&EM and DPC Training Committees, under the direction of Lead Regional Learning and Development, to enhance brigade capability and enable brigade viability.

The successful applicant will have:

  • Certificate IV in Training & Assessment (only candidates who have completed this certification will be considered)
  • Well-developed written communication skills to develop reports & correspondence and to convey training information and objectives to CFA internal & external customers.
  • Experience and skills in project management, problem solving and report preparation.
  • A contemporary understanding of training needs analysis, program planning, budgeting, development, marketing, monitoring, infrastructure maintenance, delivery, evaluation, and reporting. The training function covers a broad range of professional, technical and interpersonal areas, and includes ongoing skills maintenance activities.
  • Proven ability to manage numerous, varied and concurrent projects within budget, quality and time parameters.
  • Well-developed interpersonal, written and verbal communication skills including the ability to liaise effectively with volunteer and career personnel, Government Agencies, Local Government, public, external clients and service providers
