Job Description


The Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) exists to meet the Nation’s commitment to care for our veteran and defence service community – the men and women who have served Australia in times of war and conflict as well as peacetime. This commitment extends to the families of these individuals. We do this through programs of care, compensation, commemoration and Defence support services. DVA is both a policy and service delivery agency.

DVA is seeking talented individuals to fill various roles at the SES Band 1 level across a range of areas, which may include policy, program management, corporate, service delivery, business integration, transformation and general management.

To be a strong contender for these roles, you will need to be a first class leader with a substantial policy or program management background and demonstrated record of achievement in the provision of strategic advice to Government. Your intellectual rigour, client focused approach, and ability to manage competing demands and work to tight deadlines will be complemented by excellent communication skills, an understanding of the expectations of Ministers and a personal style that engenders trust and respect.


The successfull candidate will need to:
- be an Australian citizen;
- pass the Department’s pre-employment screening process, which includes a pre-employment check; and
- have the ability to acquire and maintain an Australian Government security clearance at the Negative Vetting Level 1.



A competitive salary package will be negotiated with the successful candidate.

An order of merit may be established that may be used to fill similar roles within the next 12 months.

RecruitAbility applies to this vacancy. Under the RecruitAbility scheme you will be invited to participate in further assessment activity for the vacancy if you choose to apply under the scheme; declare you have a disability; and meet the minimum requirements for the job. For more information see:
