Work location: Melbourne | CBD

This is a really exciting opportunity to make an impact to the business and the community. You will be the go-to person and subject matter expert for all things related to social procurement, and you will be responsible for ensuring that MRPV initiatives are met within the timeframe, are commercially sound and according to industry best practice.

Major Road Projects Victoria

Working at Major Road Projects Victoria (MRPV) means being part of something big.  We oversee more than 50 projects as a cornerstone of Victoria's Big Build, including some of the State's most important roads.

The role of Manager Social Value (12 month contract) is an exciting and important one.  This is your chance to help shape the civil construction industry by developing strategies and initiatives to deliver enduring social and sustainable outcomes for Victorians.

Join us in building better connections for Victoria by:

  • Working with your broader team to develop and implement strategies and initiatives to increase social procurement of goods and services and inclusive employment practices for MRPV projects
  • Building strong relationships and collaborating with social enterprises, Aboriginal businesses, peak bodies and government stakeholders to assist MRPV in reaching positive social outcomes
  • Ensuring that MRPV initiatives are met within the timeframe, are commercially sound and according to industry best practice.
  • Being the driver of cultural change within MRPV and industry

You are an advocate for change, social impact and equality, and have strong values that influence your decision making on a daily basis. You are flexible and work with people to educate, learn and resolve issues – you can easily work in the grey area where there is no black and white policies to guide your decisions.

You will have previously worked in a similar role and have working knowledge of Victoria's Social Procurement Framework. Your ability to plan and deliver initiatives including project management and strong communication skills will be essential in this role.

You are able to build relationships with people on all levels and from all backgrounds – whether it's senior management or external construction contractors. You love taking a collaborative approach to things and gathering feedback to inform your decision making.

We do work that matters:

  • Our projects will reduce congestion and travel times, improve safety, connect communities and improve the roads you rely on every day.
  • Have you also heard what we do in sustainability?  Our Ecologiq recycling program, to incremental improvements to processes, we always keep an eye on what we can do better
  • Check out our interactive map showing you the enormous scale of what our people do everyday…


MRPV believes in promoting an inclusive and diverse workplace and encourage people from all backgrounds, abilities and identities to apply to our vacancies.

The successful candidate will be required to undergo pre-employment checks which may include national police checks, COVID-19 vaccination status and misconduct screening.


To be part of something meaningful and leave a positive legacy connecting Victorian communities, apply for a role with us today.
