A further focus will be to maintain stakeholder relationships with internal DELWP staff and key representatives in the water sector such as the various water corporations. Therefore, our successful candidate will have demonstrated and well-honed stakeholder engagement skill as they liaise with all levels internally and externally. You are required to competently represent DELWP - these interactions are easy for you and you are in your comfort zone when doing this.
You will be required to liaise regularly with such stakeholders to collate information, use information derived from the technical works as described above, contribute to writing technical outcomes, followed by communicating to the necessary groups. For this reason, you will have reliable written and verbal communication skills.
You are happy to come to work, roll up your sleeves and proactively respond to matters that arrive on your desk in a timely manner and assist team members when required, in what will be at times a fast-paced environment. Your technical, project management, communication and stakeholder engagement skills will be utilised as you navigate complex issues, conversations, expectations and the general demands and priorities of the role.
This is a fixed term position available until 30 June 2020.
