Project Coordinators

12 days ago

Are you looking for an opportunity to be part of a great team of people who like to laugh as they create high-quality work? We need a couple of brilliant folk who are strong performers, possess drive initiative and excellent communication skills.

If you are professional, well-organised and enjoy working at a fast pace, these may be the roles you’ve been looking for.

The Health System Planning and Evaluation Division is recruiting two officers for different teams.

1. The Local Hospital Network (LHN) Commissioning Branch has an administrative role which requires skills in managing a whole-of-branch email inbox. It’s like the late 1980s are calling all good Tetris players: can you prioritise what comes into the inbox, move it to the right team, respond to rapidly falling emails and make sure everything fits and is completed on time? We’re seeking a workflow champion – someone who looks at multiplying email requests and eats them for breakfast. With one hand tied behind their back. While running backwards over … you get the picture.

You’ll also need to provide broad administrative support to the branch, and direct project and governance support to the LHN Governance and Reporting team who have a collaborative relationship with Calvary Public Hospital. Having a sense of humour, being a good team player and being able to manage upwards will be highly valued.

2. The Community Sector Contracts and Grants Unit (CSCGU) position will undertake a range of contract management activities. They will work within existing established frameworks of legislation, principles, work practices and procedures. Experience in procurement and contract management, monitoring, assessing contract compliance and performance is desirable. The position requires stakeholder liaison in relation to contractual matters.

The ACT Public Service supports workforce diversity and is committed to creating an inclusive workplace. As part of this commitment, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people with disability, culturally diverse people and those who identify as LGBTIQ are encouraged to apply.

Eligibility/Other Requirements

  • Pre-employment National Police check.
  • Experience managing a high-volume workflow and a fast-moving inbox and the ability to hit the ground running and learn as you go. Experience working in a high-pressured time pressured environment and can work under limited direction.
  • Exceptional communication skills, both oral and written, and the ability to analyse and breakdown complex matters.
  • Flexible and with the ability to adapt to a fast-moving environment.
  • Proven ability in a wide range of computer applications including Microsoft Office especially Excel and Word, and HPRM/TRIM correspondence management and tracking.

Notes: The Health System Planning and Evaluation Division are currently working exclusively from home and have been required to work from home for extended periods during the public health emergency. It is expected that this role will commence in a remote working environment.

An order of merit will be established from this selection process and may be used to fill future identical vacancies over the next 12 months.
