As the Senior Communications and Engagement Adviser (Major Projects), you will have the opportunity to work across some of the largest health infrastructure projects in Victoria.

Reporting to the Manager, Communications and Engagement (Major Projects) you will play a lead role in the planning and implementation of communication and engagement strategies for a number of ‘high value, high risk' hospital projects – including stakeholder, media, and issues management.

What you will need to be successful

A proven track record supporting and advising on large, complex projects and managing multiple stakeholder groups to deliver strong project and community outcomes. Key experience/skills required include:

  • Leading the development and implementation of effective communication and engagement strategies.
  • Writing for a broad range of audiences and channels, including distilling technical and complex information.
  • Media, Public Relations, and event management.

This is an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated and well-rounded communications professional looking for an exciting and rewarding challenge.

A tertiary qualification in fields related to communications or associated disciplines would be an advantage. However, of most value will be your relevant work experience and motivation to join the Authority's Communications and Engagement Unit.
