About the role

We are looking for an enthusiastic and highly skilled person to become the Assembly's next Assistant Clerk Committees. As a senior member of the Department's leadership team, you will proactively contribute to a positive departmental culture and work across the three parliamentary departments to achieve shared objectives.

The role involves working in the Chamber and providing procedural advice to support the sittings of the Legislative Assembly.  Key responsibilities with parliamentary committees include providing detailed advice to the Speaker and the Clerk on a range of issues, procedural advice to Chairs and members, and procedural and administrative advice to the committee secretariats. The Assistant Clerk Committees oversees committee secretariats of about 25 people, through six direct reports.

The Assistant Clerk Committees rotates with the Assistant Clerk Procedure & Serjeant-at-Arms role usually once every term of parliament. The Serjeant's duties include responsibility for ceremonial events, members' accommodation, Chamber security and the Department's tour and outreach programs.

You will be flexible, have high emotional intelligence, and enjoy working as part of team to solve problems and reach objectives. As the position requires working long and unpredictable hours during sittings of the House, you will be available for work outside normal hours.

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.

Your health and wellbeing are integral to your success. We have a range of benefits to ensure your physical and mental health are supported, including a annual health and wellbeing calendar with initiatives including flu vaccinations, skin and health checks and optical and eyewear subsidies. As well as discounted health insurance and discounted memberships at over 240 gyms, pools and fitness facilities across Victoria.

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