These leases, alongside the Territory Parks and Wildlife Conservation Act 1976, provide a strong foundation for effective joint management between Traditional Owners and the Parks and Wildlife Commission (PWC), as well as outlining Central Land Council’s (CLC) statutory responsibilities.

This role works closely with Traditional Owners and PWC to ensure the principles and objectives of joint management are being upheld. This includes recognising, valuing and incorporating Aboriginal culture, knowledge and decision making processes and utilising the combined land management skills and expertise of both joint management partners.

As a joint management officer, you will establish close working relationships with Traditional Owners in order to understand their ongoing aspirations for the joint management of their land and facilitate meetings in some of the most beautiful and culturally significant locations in Central Australia.
