Major Road Projects Victoria

Working at Major Road Projects Victoria means being part of something big.

We oversee more than 50 projects as a cornerstone of Victoria's Big Build, including some of the State's most important roads. 

Our Strategic Communications team are champions in building strong support and strategic communication plans for all of our projects – ensuring our stakeholder and local communities are engaged and informed of the projects that are important to them across Victoria.  And that's where this role comes in…


Join us in building better connections for Victoria by:

  • Working closely with your fellow MRPV Communications colleages and construction partners to develop clear and concise communication materials
  • Researching and writing high-quality, original communications material for media releases, fact sheets, publications, , brochures, project website and other content as required.

  • Leading the delivery of accurate weekly and monthly reporting on communications and stakeholder relations activity in relation to key MRPV construction projects you are assigned to

  • Responding to public enquiries in a timely and appropriate manner, in accordance with established protocols

  • Organising and coordinating logistics, meetings and communication with relevant Stakeholder Working Group.  Further more this could extend to helping manage logistics for a range of communications activities and events, including community information sessions, launches, letterbox drops, corporate events and public and promotional events for key MRPV construction projects you are assigned to


We are looking for a communications specialist who can call on experience producing high quality written communication materials.  You'll be part of a dynamic team, so need to be comfortable with prioritising and managing tasks under pressure with competing deadlines...such is the nature of the Construction game :)

This role is a 3-year fixed term position and will ideally be based up to 3 days/week in our Geelong hub office (based in Highton).  


We do work that matters:

  • Our projects will reduce congestion and travel times, improve safety, connect communities and improve the roads you rely on every day.
  • Find out more about one of the key major road projects this role would be aligned to such as the Barwon Heads Road Upgrade (
  • Have you heard about our Ecologiq program at MRPV?  We're working closely with the construction industry to remove barriers to the use of recycled content, to make sustainable materials the first choice where possible and pave a greener future for Victoria
  • Check out our news feed – we want our communities to have their say!

MRPV believes in promoting an inclusive and diverse workplace and encourage people from all backgrounds, abilities, and identities to apply to our vacancies.   MRPV also welcomes flexible working arrangements and should you be interested in part time availabilities, we encourage you to apply and discuss your preferences with our Talent Team.
