Assistant Director – Engagement

 Assistant Director – Engagement
Senior Officer Grade C
Salary Range: $106,043 – $114,146 (PN: 19233, several)

Details: Looking to join a dynamic team of communications, engagement, marketing, digital and content specialists who are driving the future of government communications?

Possess a relentless drive to provide clear information to our community – in the way they want to receive it?

Want to work collaboratively with key stakeholders to ensure our community is at the centre of communications, policy and service design and delivery?

Have a nose for identifying risk and developing high level, strategic communications and engagement strategies and advice?

Then the Communications and Engagement division within Chief Minister, Treasury and Economic Development (CMTEDD) want you!

We’re a fun group of professionals who not only enjoy long walks along the beach … to the water cooler … but championing community voice in government. We’re innovative, determined and committed to the important work we do.

The Engagement team works closely with our colleagues in the other stream of our division, who lead audience-focused content development. So close, some might say #onedreamtwostreams.

We’re looking for two officers for 12 months, with possibility of extension or permanency.

If you’re amazing but don’t make the top two – we’re also creating a merit pool (streams, pools, water … we’ve got something going here) which means you could have the opportunity to work in communications teams across the ACT Government.

So dive in, get your two page pitch to us and join our team.

The Chief Minister, Treasury and Economic Development Directorate (CMTEDD) supports workforce diversity and is committed to creating an inclusive workplace. As part of this commitment, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people with disability and those who identify as LGBTIQ are encouraged to apply.

Eligibility/Other Requirements: Relevant tertiary qualifications and a minimum of five years’ experience working professionally in the fields of strategic engagement, strategic communications, media or public relations is preferred. The ability to work flexibly with some out of hours work is required.

Note: This is a temporary position available for up to 12 months, with possibility of extension and/or permanency. This position will be moving to a new workplace designed for activity-based working (ABW) in 2020. Under ABW arrangements, officers will not have a designated workstation/desk. A merit pool may be established from this selection process and may be used to fill future identical vacancies over the next 12 months. These positions are to fill vacancies as a result of maternity leave.
