Job Description

We have an exciting opportunity for an Adviser to join the Food Assurance Team for a permanent and/or 6 months secondment / fixed term contract.

The Food Assurance Team is responsible for setting the rules for import and export of food, and for monitoring the system. We're a small team but have a broad, international view. There are many billions of dollars' worth of product flowing through our system, so it's important we get it right, and can provide evidence to show that the system is working.

As an Adviser Food Assurance you will be helping to develop and run our performance-monitoring framework, which includes collecting, analyzing, understanding, and communicating qualitative and quantitative data to a range of audiences.

The key responsabilités and functions include:

  • Develop, implement, and maintain our performance-monitoring systems
  • Provide data mining services and data analysis to the team to help with identification, location and management of non-conforming product
  • Maintain and improve the team's data repository
  • Coordinate and complete team reporting requirements
  • Develop and maintain effective working relationships with relevant stakeholders (incl. government, industry, and non-government organisations).
  • Develop and maintain effective working relationships with colleagues and other groups within MPI to facilitate the performance monitoring and reporting requirements.
  • Manage our team quality assurance procedures

To be successful in this role you will have:

  • Ideally have an understanding of, and experience operating in, quality-management and performance-monitoring systems
  • Previous experience in establishing and effectively maintaining collaborative relationships with stakeholders
  • Experience in data analysis skills and using BI tools, report writing, and
  • Most of all, a can-do and fun attitude!

You will be fully supported and your work will be varied and interesting!
