Job Description


A rare opportunity exists to be part of shaping Australia’s sustainable development future at the Department of the Environment and Energy. The environmental assessment and post approval teams in the Environment Standards Division are looking for talented, motivated people to assess and advise on projects large and small that may impact on plants and animals, ecological communities, the marine environment, or our natural and built heritage that are protected under national environmental law.

We work collaboratively with Commonwealth, state and territory government agencies, as well as industry, community groups and individuals, to regulate a diverse range of projects, including agricultural and urban development, resource and renewable energy projects, nation building infrastructure, and waste management. Your role may include travel to these locations to make sure we understand the environmental, social and economic context of these proposals.

Engaging broadly with environmental and heritage experts across the Department, as well as external experts as necessary, this role presents a great opportunity to build networks and learn about the broader corporate and policy context of environmental regulation. As we also administer and represent Australia’s interests in the London Protocol, some of these roles may also provide opportunities to learn about and engage in international policy-making.

Multiple positions are available at the APS 5 and APS 6 classifications for people who are:

• Solutions oriented and enjoy working collaboratively as part of a team
• Able to apply analytical and research skills to review complex written material, consider options and make recommendations in high quality written form
• Confident communicators, able to convey complex information clearly and succinctly to a range of audiences
• Energetic, resilient and proactive and can manage pressure and competing priorities to get results.



Non-ongoing opportunity will be offered for a specified term

This is a specified term employment opportunity for a period of 12 months, but may be extended up to 3 years as per the Public Service Regulations 1999, Sub Regulation 3.5(3)
