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:

Are you keen to secure an opportunity to work with the CFA where you can showcase your strong administrative skills?  This Administrator Learning and Development vacancy will provide you with an insight into the Learning and Development Team and may be the next step in your career. 

Based in Chirnside Park (District 13) and reporting to the Lead, Learning & Development your days will see you work closely with the Volunteers and the Learning & Development Coordinators focusing on coordinating administration tasks for all Learning & Development activities within the region. Overall, you will contribute to the delivery of learning and training programs to enhance brigade capability.

A day in the life of the Administrator Learning and Development will consist of:

  • Coordinating all administrative requirements including support to meetings, including agenda preparation, venue and catering
  • Providing administrative support for the preparation of high-quality documentation, data and training material
