Position Details

At Digital Victoria we are upping the ante- we know in order for Victoria to thrive that we need to be ambitious about transforming the way we do digital.

Our vision is simple, to build a Victoria with better, more accessible services, a public sector that is digital ready and a digital economy that thrives. To do that we will champion the use of data and new technologies, lead collaboration efforts across Victorian Government and put the Victorian public at the heart of what we do.

We are looking for an exceptional Solutions Analyst to join the Single Digital Presence (SDP) team. SDP is a web transformation program that is consolidating government websites and making it easier to find, understand and use Victorian government information online.

The Solution Analyst will perform research and development working with the delivery team and will demonstrate the results of this R&D in various ways, such as by providing benefits analysis, demonstrations, or proofs of concept.

The Solution Analyst will work with other areas of Digital Victoria, helping bring the SDP platform in line with wider Digital Victoria guidelines and principles as well as leveraging the knowledge of resources in the branch to extend SDP for its future requirements. The goal of the Solution Analyst should be to use already built functionality wherever possible, but where required, drive the direction of any bespoke work required.
