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 Forest Management and Roading Officer performs a key role in achieving forest management objectives across the Murrindindi District.

The key focus of this position is coordinating road management activities across the district, including forest road construction, improvements and maintenance and associated administration. The position will ensure road management activities are undertaken in an efficient and effective manner to meet professional engineering standards and in accordance with existing legislation, policies, plans and codes of practice.

The position will provide advice and support on the management of road networks, liaise with other businesses, manage budgets, supervise work crews and contractors. You will have strong leadership and supervision skills, as you will be managing and deploying teams to achieve operational outcomes. You will ensure administrative requirements are met -and you have demonstrated planning and organising skills and are comfortable with the administrative aspect of the role.

You have well-honed communication skills – both written and verbal.  You have come from a background where you have had substantial stakeholder engagement. Therefore, you approach all stakeholders with an extraordinary high level of professionalism. Building professional relationships with others is natural for you and you manage all conversations with ease - as you navigate and resolve complex issues, expectations and the general demands and priorities of the role. You are an active listener and know how to appropriately respond under any given situation.

This role will suit a person who comes to work, rolls up their sleeves and is able to self-manage and respond to the work that comes in and you are adaptable to the team's needs.  No two days are the same. We won't shy away from saying we need hard working, flexible colleagues who can roll with the ebb and flow of the workload and have volumes of emotional intelligence as you apply your knowledge to interesting and different workplace situations.
