Victoria State Emergency Service (VICSES) is a volunteer-based emergency service. Our highly skilled and equipped Volunteers are trained comprehensively in a wide range of emergency environments. To minimise the impact of emergencies when they occur and strengthen the community's capacity to recover swiftly and safely, VICSES focuses on working with communities and partners in building resilience to achieve more aware, informed and prepared communities.  We support them to understand their risk and the relevance of taking action before, during and after emergency events.

As the largest road rescue network in Australia we have specialist teams that provide a 24/7 response to road accident and trauma incidents. We assist Victoria Police in search and rescue operations, and play an important role in supporting the Country Fire Authority (CFA), Fire Rescue Victoria (FRV), Parks Victoria and the Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action (DEECA) during major bushfire and emergency incidents.



This role is responsible for providing project coordination for the Local Flood Guide (LFG) Enhancement Project. This includes coordinating the review, design, and implementation of the VICSES Local Flood Guide (LFG) product and associated guidelines and tools for VICSES members and support agencies.

This position requires strong project management and coordination skills, working with a range of internal and external stakeholders to deliver outcomes within clearly defined time and resource constraints.

The role supports the Risk and Resilience grant program to assist in reducing and limiting the impact of flooding on Victoria's diverse communities; and supports the Emergency Management Planning (EMP) team to meet outcomes of its business plan.
