Position Details

We are building an inclusive workplace to help realise the potential of our employees, embrace our differences, and apply our diverse thinking to innovation and delivering services to Victorian communities. All jobs can be worked flexibly and we encourage job applications from Aboriginal people, people with disabilities, young people and people from culturally diverse backgrounds.

The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) has a requirement to fill a Land and Built Environment Program Officer – Native Title role. This is an exciting opportunity to work in a dynamic team environment to apply legislation and policy and provide advice on Native Title rights on Crown land, including engaging with Traditional Owner representatives on future proposals.

Additionally, the role will require providing support to public land managers (such as volunteer Committees of Management and Councils) to inform and guide on appropriate management of Crown land. Further, the role requires assessing applications for use and development of Crown land.

You will work with internal teams to ensure consistent, integrated and efficient delivery of Crown land programs to the community. You will be working within a legislative and policy framework as you assist in the delivery of a range of Crown land administration services.

Your communication skills are exceptional; and you shall use these skills in forming, strengthening and maintaining the stakeholder experience by providing guidance and sound advice in accordance with relevant legislation and policy.

Your work style naturally lends itself to contributing to an inclusive workplace culture that is collaborative, professional and engaged. You want to be a part of a high performing team that you have contributed to, and you are motivated to do so. Your exceptional stakeholder engagement, resilience and negotiation skills will be utilised as you navigate complex issues, conversations, expectations and the general demands and priorities of the role.

Your application will be highly regarded if you have experience in applying relevant legislation and policy (for example the Native Title Act, Traditional Owner Settlement Act, Land Act, Crown Land (Reserves) Act, Marine and Coastal Act etc), to assist you in hitting the ground running.  This is an opportunity to be an active member of the Land and Built Environment Branch leadership team and supervise two staff – this is an opportunity to progress in your career, if you aspire to lead a small team or you currently do so.

This is a fixed term position available until 30 June 2020.

To be considered for this position, your application should include a supporting statement demonstrating that you meet the key selection criteria and any job requirements specified in the position description.
