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 Project Officer will support the team by working with internal and external stakeholders to promote the awareness and consistent application of the offset policy. The role will focus on the delivery and monitoring of native vegetation offset sites. This may include the management and development of offset standards, quality assurance of proposed new native vegetation offset sites from consultants, management and monitoring of native vegetation offset site agreements, and the application of native vegetation quality assessment (VQA) methodology and ecological assessments. The successful candidate will demonstrate enthusiasm and curiosity for energy public policy, as well as an outcomes and delivery focused approach. The role requires the day-to-day application of analytic and policy skills to identify opportunities, navigate policy issues, and come up with innovative solutions. Ensuring landowners can and are complying with their agreement to deliver gains in native vegetation by receiving and reviewing annual reports and monitoring (or overseeing monitoring programs) of offset sites established under section 69 of the Conservation Forests and Lands Act.

The role will suit someone with good working knowledge of native vegetation and natural resource management and a qualification in natural resource management is highly desirable.
