The Water Group is currently seeking to appoint a Principal Policy Officer Drought Response to help guide the team in the development of evidence-based drought lessons learnt projects, and to aid in the integration of these lessons learnt into business-as-usual. The role supports the drought team in liaising extensively with other branches and divisions within the Department and state government agencies.
In this role you will provide expert advice and support to the Drought coordinators within a tight-knit drought team that advises the Director Planning Implementation and other members of the senior leadership team on drought-related program, policy and legislative frameworks.
You will consult, and foster strong links with internal and external stakeholders when coordinating projects, with a focus on evidence-based policy analysis. You will play a key role in coordinating the rolling out of guiding policy documents and proposed intervention measures that will withstand expert external scrutiny over time.
A large focus of the role is the provision of evidence-based analysis that drives the development of improved decision making under current and future drought policy programs and operations.
The Department of Planning, Industry & Environment’s (DPIE) vision is to create thriving environments, communities and economies for the people of New South Wales.

We strive to be a high-performing, world-class public service organisation that celebrates and reflects the full diversity of the community we serve and seeks to embed Aboriginal cultural awareness and knowledge throughout the department.
