LEVEL CROSSING REMOVAL PROJECT

About the role

We're not just about removing – we're building, we're connecting, we're revitalising communities all across Melbourne. As one of Victoria's largest rail infrastructure projects in the state's history the team at LXRP are busier than ever, that's why we are looking for a Land and Property Adviser to join our North-West team.

As a Land and Property Adviser, you will be responsible for supporting the facilitation and management of all matters relating to the identification, leasing and management of property matters and where necessary, disposal and acquisition of land for project purposes. The role will allow you to collaborate with a range of internal and external stakeholders such as VicTrack, VicRoads, Department of Transport, Department of Treasury and Finance, Valuer General Victoria, Victorian Government Land Monitor, Local Government and more. 

Whilst no day is the same in the Land and Property Adviser role, some of the tasks include:

  • Providing guidance to project teams on land and property matters in consideration to both private, government and Crown land.
  • Undertaking land and property tasks for site identification - such as title searches, investigating land status and identifying project survey needs.
  • Managing assets and land within the project area – this includes but is not limited to negotiating lease agreements, maintaining a property/asset register and preparing Lease Amendment Deeds and Plans.

The Land and Property Adviser position offers a 3-year fixed term contract, paying between $102,637 and $124,183 + super. LXRP fully supports the new hybrid way of life, with flexible working arrangements on offer for those who enjoy working from both the office, based in the CBD and from home.

 

About you

We are interested in people with experience in a range of land and property related disciplines such as property valuation, land planning, conveyancing, land and asset management, property surveying or government land processes. Experience in managing land and property issues within a major project environment, including private and Crown land is considered highly desirable, but not mandatory.

You MUST be confident in your ability to work autonomously, have demonstrated experience taking initiative in project work and understand the importance of building meaningful relationships with relevant stakeholders. Exposure utilising or understanding the project delivery powers under Major Transport Projects Facilitation Act 2009 is a huge advantage.

Let's get technical! What will we expect from you?

  • Experience in a land and property related discipline as well as demonstrated experience understanding land and asset management and leasing framework.
  • Proficient with the Microsoft Office suite of applications, familiar with GIS mapping and experience with the Property Information Management System (PIMS) would be beneficial to the role.  
  • Relevant tertiary qualification in property, surveying, urban planning or a similar discipline is beneficial to the role but not mandatory.
  • Proven understanding of legislation, policies and processes relating to land management, valuation, acquisition and disposal.

We are looking for individuals who have a strong sense of purpose in helping the LXRP team deliver on transforming the way Victorians live, work and travel.

  • We are proud leaders and participants of internship programs that provide opportunities to people who identify as LGBTIQ, people living with a disability, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, refugees or asylum seekers or people from low socioeconomic backgrounds.

  • We place great importance on growth, empowering our people to enhance their knowledge, capability and experience through continual learning, formal training and lessons learned.
