About the Role

An opportunity exists for a Project Support Officer within our Advisory Services business, based at Graytown in Victoria.

This is a fixed-term contract, which is likely to extend beyond the initial 12 months. Flexible working, including working from home and part-time hours, will be considered for this position.

To be successful as a Project Support Officer, you will need to bring with you:

  • Demonstrated experience providing business support
  • Understanding of data management systems
  • Well-developed interpersonal skills and demonstrated experience in building and maintaining stakeholder relations
  • Outstanding written and verbal communication skills
  • Demonstrated ability to set priorities, multi task and work under pressure
  • Strong initiative and ability to engage with and influence stakeholders
