  • Highly developed project management skills and experience leading cooperative efforts, including influencing and negotiating with others to achieving positive outcomes
  • Good working knowledge of the RMA and related processes
  • Excellent interpersonal and relationship management skills, including experience in stakeholder engagement
  • Highly developed problem-solving, analytical, written and oral communication skills.


If you are a strategic and analytical thinker, work well collaboratively and know how to successfully convey information to a variety of stakeholders, this is a great opportunity for you.  Essential for the role are a clean and current driver's licence, willingness to travel to sites around the country and a relevant tertiary qualification.
