Analyst: Public Accounts and Audit

Department of the Legislative Assembly 

Public Accounts & Estimates Committee 

About the role

Reporting to the Lead Analyst, Public Accounts and Audit, you will assist in fulfilling the Committee's statutory functions in relation to the Victorian Auditor-General's Office (VAGO) and the Parliamentary Budget Office, including follow up of VAGO audits and own motion (self referenced) inquiries.   

This is an ideal opportunity for an individual with extensive experience in undertaking complex investigations, inquiries or reviews, and drafting clear and comprehensive communications, briefs and reports. 

About you

You will be adept at identifying, analysing and synthesising complex issues, and conflicting evidence and data. Your communication and interpersonal skills will be a strength, as is your time management and capacity to be flexible and respond well to change. 

You will be tertiary qualified and have the capacity to critically evaluate transparency and accountability mechanisms within the public sector including legislative frameworks. A sound knowledge of Australian auditing practices and standards is desirable but not essential. The preparation of succinct, high quality written analysis on complex issues in tight timeframes for a non-technical audience will be a strength. 

Why join us?

We offer flexible work, come to the iconic heritage listed Parliament House building or our adjacent modern offices and collaborate with the team one day, work from home the next. 

We understand that your health and wellbeing are integral to your success and have a range of benefits to ensure your physical and mental health are supported. These include access to health and wellbeing initiatives.  

Your professional development is important to us. That's why we have a dedicated learning and development framework, along with development programs and targeted in-house training to support your professional growth.   

When you excel at your work and initiate innovative solutions or go above and beyond to demonstrate our values, you will be recognised for your efforts through our reward and recognition program.
