The role

Are you an experienced PA administrator looking for a new challenge?  This role is to provide high calibre, confidential support to two Managers and their teams in the Economic Development and Transitions Branch.

The team

The Economic Development and Transition Branch is responsible for providing policy advice on issues relating to the growth of our firms, sectors and regions.  We are also interested in how the government supports sectors, regions and workers through transitions, whether they be from adapting to climate change policy responses, or other effects such as automation or technological disruption. 

We work hard, on interesting topics and with a range of diverse stakeholders.  We like to work collaboratively, and harness the knowledge and ideas of others with different perspectives and experience.  We like to celebrate success, support each other on the challenges, and importantly, we enjoy what we do.

  • You are customer-focused, flexible and agile with a positive, proactive approach to their work
  • You’ll always be two steps ahead of your Manager anticipating what is required and when, whilst ensuring that tasks are completed

You will also have a proven track record in providing personal assistance and administrative support to managers, preferably in the public sector as well as the ability to work effectively with a team.
