Do you pride yourself on your lived experience building strong and sustainable relationships with First Nations communities?

  • 2 x Permanent flexible full-time positions based in Cairns or Townsville
  • Diverse, interesting work and experiences in regional and remote settings
  • A collaborative, innovative environment with opportunities to grow your skills

Do you pride yourself on your lived experience building strong and sustainable relationships with First Nations communities? Do you have a passion for protecting environmental values? And are you ready to put your skills to the test?

We have recently established an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Council Engagement Program following a collaborative process with Queensland’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Councils to co-design a 5-step program to reframe our regulatory relationship.

This program will be underpinned by the establishment and maintenance of a regulatory relationship that enables positive environmental outcomes, protection of cultural and spiritual values and healthier communities by being fit for purpose, fit for place and fit for people.

You’ll work hard to establish meaningful relationships that support Queensland’s Indigenous Councils on their pathway towards environmental compliance. Drawing on operational experience, you will play a central role in supporting Indigenous Council’s to operate and maintain municipal activities, particularly waste and wastewater infrastructure, and recommend practical, on ground solutions that support place-based capability uplift.

We’re looking for someone who not only brings their own experience to the role but also their own values. Your contribution will count, and so will you.

You'll need:

  • Resilience, pragmatism, tenacity, and confidence in a regional or remote setting
  • Courageous and ethical leadership, and advanced technical skills
  • The ability to form trusted relationships with both First Nations partners and others

This is a First Nations Priority Consideration Role. Refer to the position description for further information.
