Victorian Greens Senator-elect Lidia Thorpe is seeking an experienced senior adviser to join her team as Chief of Staff with an anticipated commencement date of early August (negotiable).
The Chief of Staff provides strategic, campaign and policy advice, coordinates priority campaigns, and manages an electorate office team working across Melbourne and Canberra offices.
The Chief of Staff frequently accompanies the Senator on parliamentary business, public engagements and community meetings, involving travel and irregular hours. Note however that the Chief of Staff will not necessarily need to accompany the Senator to Canberra for all parliamentary sitting weeks.
The position is offered under the Members of Parliament (Staff) Act 1984, and employment conditions are outlined in the Members of Parliament (Staff) Enterprise Agreement 2016-2019. In addition to the salary, employer-sponsored superannuation of 15% is offered.
The position is offered at an Electorate Officer B classification with a salary of $77,926 (depending on prior experience) p.a. plus 15% superannuation. The role attracts an additional Electorate Staff Allowance in the range of $16,116 - $24,174 per annum, in recognition of reasonable additional hours of work and travel outside of business hours, for a total salary range of $94,042 to $102,100 per annum.
Occasional interstate travel required.
Please note all employees are expected to sign a confidentiality and code of conduct agreement prior to the commencement of their employment. A probationary period of 3 months, with the option of extending by a maximum of two months, will apply.
