The Department of Health plays a critical role in the Victorian health system and is responsible for shaping it to meet the health needs of Victorians into the future. We also lead the Victorian Government's response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Working with our partners, we oversee Victoria's health system including mental health, ageing and aged care and preventive health. We are committed to developing and supporting a workforce that is well equipped and highly motivated to provide responsive and quality services to all Victorians. All jobs can be worked flexibly and we encourage job applications from Aboriginal people, people with disabilities, LGBTQI+ and people from culturally diverse backgrounds and differences to realise the potential of our employees for innovation and delivering services.


The Director, Advanced Analytics, uses advanced analytic methods to enable service reform and planning decisions in both the Department of Health and Department of Families, Fairness and Housing.

You and your team will identify, prioritise and deliver high value analytic projects that will improve decisions and outcomes for Victorians, working closely with partners across both departments and the broader Victorian Public Service. You will specialise in applying advanced methods to linked and operational administrative data sets, using and extending the team's econometric, machine learning and simulation capabilities.

You will become an analytic leader in the Victorian Public Service. You will be outcomes-focused, technically-trained and collaboratively-inclined, with substantial experience and skills in analytics. You will possess strong executive capabilities in the leadership of specialised teams; oversight of major and complicated projects; translation of analytic problems and findings; and the building of relationships and partnerships.

Mandatory Vaccination Policy

The department is committed to providing and maintaining a working environment which is safe and without risk to the health of its workers and clients.  As it is an essential element of any role within the department that employees be able to attend work onsite and to do so safely, employees are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as a condition of their employment.  This requirement applies unless they have a medical condition which means they cannot be vaccinated against COVID -19.  Therefore, the department will ask any prospective employee, who has been identified as the preferred candidate for a role within the department, to provide proof of their COVID-19 vaccination status prior to any offer of employment being made.  If a prospective employee has a relevant medical condition which means they cannot be vaccinated against COVID-19, they should contact the department to discuss their individual circumstances.


Applicants are encouraged to apply online, submitting a cover letter and a current resume.
