About Us

At the Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) we conduct large scale events in the form of State and local council elections and other commercial/community polls. We also have an ongoing role in educating the community about the importance of keeping voter enrolment up-to-date and participating in Victoria's democracy.

Who We Need

You have built a strong foundation in your communication career, including significant experience in dealing with the media and developing quality change management, communication and engagement plans.

Your track record in working with the media, social media and in developing positive employee engagement will allow you to initiate and manage negotiations with peers and senior leaders.
