We'll also complete the Ring Road in Greensborough, overhaul the Eastern Freeway, build Melbourne's first dedicated busway and the North East Trail – more than 34km of walking and cycling paths.

About the Opportunity

Be part of a transformative infrastructure project for Victoria, with an exciting role in the North East Link Program's (NELP) Project Controls!

As the Senior Risk Advisor, you will work with internal project teams to ensure effective risk management and the ongoing improvement of systems and processes across various project delivery packages contributing to the achievement of the NELP objectives. You will be integral in fostering a high performing risk-based culture, enabling informed decision making and facilitating value enhancement and protection for NELP. Planning and facilitating risk assessments, risk profile reviews and analysing and interpreting risk data, will require a committed and relationship-focussed individual, passionate about the role risk plays for an organisation and who is keen to learn and progress their career in this field. 

You will need to understand the context, elicit and analyse relevant information and to do so, will call on both technical knowledge and interpersonal skills that have ideally been applied from a similar, large or complex organisation. 

Travel and time spent at a site office (Bulleen, Heidelberg, Watsonia or Abbotsford) will be requirement of this position.

  • Has a fundamental desire to see a reduction in risk and the constant pursuit of excellence in system and process improvements to deliver organisational wide benefits.


Our commitment to creating a workplace that inspires you, engages you and grows you is strong – we want you to be a powerful contributor to this wonderfully diverse and dynamic organisation. Our offering continues to grow but here is what we already have in store for you:
