About the role

It's time to don your hard hat, high vis vest and work boots: a job with the Rail Projects Victoria Safety Team awaits!

We're looking for two Senior Project Safety Advisors to work on several exciting developments and going on-site is one of the perks.  

Key responsibilities include monitoring and overseeing safety systems development and implementation, managing relationships, and providing sound advice around legislative requirements and departmental policies and procedures.

You will also play a role in enhancing RPV's already strong work culture, promoting and influencing improvements around health and safety.

About you

You are driven and focused, and a high-performing environment brings out the best in you as you deliver exceptional outcomes.

If you want a legacy project, not just a job, this could be the opportunity you have been waiting for.
