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 an exciting opportunity for an Adviser, Program Integrity to join their Solar Victoria portfolio. This role reports to the Director Risk, Assurance and Standards. The position provides strategic advice on risk, compliance and enforcement including development and maintenance of operational policies services and provides advice to support the Director with decisions related to ensuring integrity of the Solar Homes program. 

The position will also contribute to, or directly provide authoritative and timely advice, briefings, reports and project plans relevant to the division's activities. The incumbent will be a highly experienced Adviser / Policy Officer and will bring practical experience and a demonstrated professional background in knowing the detailed stages to formulating policy advice, understanding the development of policy and applied government policy.  You will be a highly dynamic worker, flexible and an agile thinker as you tackle problems and from time to time respond to requests and provide advice within tight time frames.

Our successful candidate will have excellent communication (verbal and written) and stakeholder management skills. You are a resilient individual - self-motivated and pro-active – and can apply critical systems thinking and strategic skills to your work. You are extremely comfortable working with ambiguity to begin with, however, the uncertainty will not last for long, as you work with your Director to create the certainty, the clarity and the detail. You can deliver on expectations and create a positive and productive environment.

You are extremely organised in your planning, organising and multi-tasking – your team has relied on you to successfully deliver to meet objectives. You keep your finger on the pulse of your work. This style of work comes natural to you, you do not get flustered, distracted or overwhelmed; and are able to stay on course whilst multiple projects occur simultaneously.

You have a work style that 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 become a trusted advisor for the Senior Leadership Team.

Above all you will have volumes of emotional intelligence, because you will be required to be reflective as you identify the consequences of your policy advice and what the impacts of the subsequent decisions will be on the management of the Solar Homes Program.

This is a fixed term position available for a period of 18 months from the commencement of employment.

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.
