Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership

About the role

The Policy and Project Officer - Publications and Digital will play an integral role in the delivery of the Australian Teacher Workforce Data (ATWD) initiative – a national education initiative that focuses on providing a comprehensive picture of the national teacher workforce.

As a member of a small and collaborative team, the position will support and contribute to the delivery of ATWD Products and Data Access Strategy, including policy publications and a suite of digital data products, to provide easily accessible and visually compelling data to a diverse range of stakeholders.

This position is being offered as a full-time contract until June 2023 with the possibility of extension for 6-12 months.

AITSL operates in a blended working environment with work completed both in the office and from home. Our offices are physically located in Melbourne, but this position can be undertaken remotely – so applications outside of Victoria are welcome.

About you

You will fill a unique role in the delivery of the ATWD digital access solution – bridging the work of the publications and outputs team and the data scientist team with your ability to understand and translate data and inform the design of digitally based and user-responsive delivery of the data and the data outcomes. The role would be ideally suited to a confident self-starter with exceptional writing skills, who has a sound understanding of research, data analysis, data translation and data visualisation in a digital environment. The role will require someone who enjoys the challenge of tight deadlines and turn-around times and is passionate about quality and timely outputs.

You will be excited by the prospect of collaborating with a small team to develop accessible and visually compelling digital products for communicating evidence-based information and advice.

Essential skills:

  • Demonstrated effective communication skills including the ability to develop fit-for-purpose written materials for a range of audience types.
  • Experience in the development of reports, research briefs, policy papers and/or messaging from evidence and data.
  • Ability to think critically about data and its policy implications.
  • Proven capacity to successfully contribute to projects to an efficient and timely delivery, managing competing priorities and within a complex environment.
  • Demonstrated application of problem-solving capabilities and analysis in the identification and development of appropriate options and methods for policy and projects.
  • Demonstrated ability to effectively maintain productive working relationships with a range of internal and external stakeholders.
  • Superior attention to detail – observing fine details and identifying gaps in information.
  • A relevant degree and/or experience.

Highly desirable skills:

  • Eye for design and the presentation of data in visually engaging and useful formats.
