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:

This newly created role will see you report directly to the Chief Risk Officer where you will lead and manage the internal audit function within CFA by implementing the internal audit program with CFA's outsourced provider.

The manager will also be responsible for embedding a strong risk management culture within CFA, by facilitating business unit leaders' identification, analysis and management of risks consistent with the CFA Risk Management Framework.

In addition, this ongoing role is responsible for providing senior technical risk insight and strategic thinking combined with leadership skills and in depth understanding of controls and other activities to mitigate risk.

About You:

Naturally you will be a superior communicator and negotiator with extensive knowledge of risk management, specifically ISO 31000 and the Victorian Government Risk Management Framework (VGRMF).

In addition, the ideal candidate will have significant risk management experience with a focus in building risk capability and implementing risk frameworks.

This is a truly unique opportunity to play a key role in influencing and strengthening CFA's direction in a fast-paced transformative environment.  This may be your next opportunity if you are highly motivated, professional and agile with a genuine desire to join a well-recognised organisation that has a meaningful purpose in the community.
