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 vacant position for a Coastal Project Officer (Beach Renourishment) to manage Beach Renourishment Projects.

This role will help Port Phillip Bay communities enhance and protect their beaches and foreshores for the future by assisting with the delivery of the Port Phillip Beach Renourishment Program.  This role will deliver services to support the effective and efficient delivery of beach renourishment projects across the Port Phillip and Barwon South West Regions.

The position works closely with the Port Philip and Barwon South West Land and Built Environment Teams, the Statewide Coastal Programs Team and Marine Biodiversity Policy & Programs to form strong linkages into the Victorian Coastal Monitoring Program to ensure the consistent, integrated and efficient delivery of coastal projects across FFRG and to the community.

Our successful candidate will bring solid end to end project management skills – you have a history of staying on course and see projects through to completion. Hand in hand with your project management skills you are a natural at solving problems and working through bottlenecks – you investigate, understand, devise options, make recommendations and deliver.  Understanding contract management is desirable, if you do not have this skill, we need you to apply your sharp minded to learn through guidance and experience.

You have a genuine interest in contributing to and improving coastal communities, which involves interacting with the public. You competently represent DELWP - recognising the role has a public interface – these interactions are easy for you and you are in your comfort zone when doing this.

Underpinning all the skills that you have, you have an exceptional ability to work collaboratively with others. You can form and maintain positive working relationships with internal stakeholders as you work towards delivery on state-wide strategies to protect environments. 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.

At all times you have the safety and well-being of your staff at the forefront of your mind, and ensure plans are in place to minimise risks to them and to the communities you support. You will be joining a dynamic team, with a flexible and supportive culture and will have volumes of emotional intelligence as you apply your knowledge to enhance Victoria's coasts, whilst supporting the state of Victoria and Victorians.

This is a fixed term position available for 12 months from the date of commencement.
