High profile senior executive role

Lead Victoria’s newly established recycling regulator

Build Victoria’s circular economy

About the organisation

Recycling Victoria is a newly established organisation, created to oversee and regulate Victoria's waste and recycling sector, and to support the delivery of a thriving circular economy. It will provide statewide regulation, guidance and strategic leadership to the sector, with powers to set performance standards and drive accountability and transparency. As a business unit within the Victorian Government's Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP), Recycling Victoria will set minimum standards and clear responsibilities for the sector, stabilising the market and providing better information and data to plan and deliver the right infrastructure and services for a growing Victoria.

About the role

The Head will establish and lead Recycling Victoria as a newly formed business unit within DELWP. This includes establishing organisational leadership, strategy and culture with a focus on innovation and adaptability, state-wide service delivery with an emphasis on regional Victorians, and the achievement of large-scale strategic change for the sector while delivering on statutory functions and objectives. The Head will work across government at all levels to coordinate waste and resource recovery priorities state-wide, while stimulating the growth of Victoria's circular economy through the creation of regulatory and compliance frameworks, and the development of new programs, polices and infrastructure for the sector.

With the ability to inspire high performance in rapidly changing environments, you are known for your exceptional stakeholder, governance and operational management skills, and your ability to communicate with clarity and purpose. Your experience reflects a history of leading effective regulation, complemented by credibility with community and stakeholders, and you see a senior executive role leading Victoria's new resource recovery regulator as highly aligned with your professional values.
