Job Description


The Senior Communications Officers are pivotal members of our communications team. They are the key to our ability to deliver a professional and responsive communications service. They work independently and as part of a team. They play a crucial role in supporting junior team members and other staff.

The successful applicants will be team players with highly-developed writing, editing, proofing and digital production skills.

Candidates must submit an up-to-date resume (maximum of four A4 pages) detailing their relevant skills and experience and, in 1000 words or less, state their claims against the selection criteria.


We will invite shortlisted candidates to attend an interview and to complete a practical exercise to help us assess suitability.

Non-ongoing opportunity will be offered for a specified term

Positions may be offered on an ongoing basis or non-ongoing basis for an initial period of 12 months with the possibility of extension up to 3 years. Non-ongoing positions may become ongoing. We may also create a merit pool from this recruitment process to fill similar roles for both ongoing and non-ongoing opportunities if, and as, they arise.
