Position Details

The Country Fire Authority (CFA) is one of the world's largest, and most highly regarded, community-based emergency services organisations. We are proud of the work we do in protecting lives and property, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. CFA strives to be a values-based organisation and an organisation of choice for volunteers and employees, where people with a variety of skills, experiences and backgrounds all add value through the roles they perform.

About the Role:

Play a key role in liaising with our main stakeholders in the field and other areas of CFA in this exciting position. You will focus on strengthening the communication and collaboration in relation to community education, education programs and service delivery. Your key focus will not only be to coordinate and support the delivery of regional/district business plans, but also to provide expert advice in the analysis and assessment of community risks and vulnerability across a diverse, multicultural region. Additionally you will make recommendations on improvements to programs based on program evaluation and feedback.

About You:

We are seeking an open minded individual with high levels of emotional intelligence, including empathy and self-awareness. Tertiary qualifications in social science, management or education and training are preferred but not essential. Importantly, you will bring significant project coordination capability with well-developed analytical skills, advanced written and verbal communication, and the ability to build strong working relationships. Experience working in multicultural environments will be highly advantageous. Further requirements include excellent organisational and time management skills with the ability to lead, mentor and develop casual and volunteer members.
