Salary Range: $101,120 - $122,348

Work location: Melbourne | CBD

The Department of Families, Fairness and Housing (DFFH) works hard to create equal opportunities for all Victorians to live a safe, respected and valued life. Our areas of focus are child protection, housing, disability, the prevention of family violence, multicultural affairs, LGBTQI+ equality, veterans, women and youth. The work we do benefits thousands of Victorians, particularly those who are disadvantaged and vulnerable. We work in a variety of community-based settings, including people's homes, residential facilities and secure settings across metropolitan, rural and regional Victoria. We are committed to developing and supporting a workforce that is well equipped and highly motivated. All jobs can be worked flexibly and we encourage applications from Aboriginal people and people from diverse backgrounds and abilities.


The Senior Risk Advisor role has been created as part of a dedicated capability to enhance the risk identification, awareness and management across Homes Victoria as it effectively delivers on the Big Housing Build and other commitments. Given the strategic importance of effective risk management for the delivery of strategic programs and organisational effectiveness, this role will work with the broader Performance, Risk and Program Management team and the other Homes Victoria branches to enhance the organisation's capabilities with fit for purpose approaches to risk management policies and procedures.

You will work with internal stakeholders to provide risk advice and support as part of a cross-organisational lift in risk awareness and capability. Equally, the risk function works closely with DFFH's Chief Risk Officer (and team), connecting Homes Victoria portfolio risks with the whole department risk management approach.

Are you:                                                 

  • An experienced risk professional who has supported large scale infrastructure-related programs covering a diverse set of enterprise- and program-specific risks and issues?

  • Equipped with demonstrated knowledge and experience with the Victorian Government Risk Management Framework and other related enterprise and infrastructure-related government policies?

  • Effective at collaborating to implement risk management policies, procedures and practices that are fit for purpose and demonstrate impact and value to an organisation?

  • Passionate about leading and engaging others to enhance risk awareness and management in a dynamic and ever-changing environment?
