REF: DELdsc0323
  • Work on one of the most important issues of our time
  • Inspire Victorians about the future of renewables
  • Be at the forefront of energy transformation


The Position 

The Director Communications and Public Engagement leads a small team and is responsible for delivering public awareness and education campaigns, media and external relations, building brand and reputation, and using all channels to deliver powerful and compelling content and public engagement.

You are an exceptional leader, experienced in the development and delivery of integrated communications – including across media, social media, campaigns, and events.

You can navigate complexity and build strong relationships. You are a trusted adviser and provide high level strategic advice, while also excelling at the energetic, ‘hands-on’ delivery of a small team.  You are used to working in a fast-paced, dynamic organisation.

You bring your team and your stakeholders together around a shared purpose. You can motivate, unite, and deliver measurable impact.

Experience in preparing communications strategies and materials for high profile public projects (particularly in energy or renewables projects) will be highly regarded.


The Organisation 

The Victorian Government is bringing back the State Electricity Commission (SEC) to speed up Victoria’s move to renewable energy. The new SEC is investing in renewables to power Victoria’s clean energy future. It will invest $1 billion towards delivering 4.5 gigawatts of power through renewable energy projects.

This will provide cleaner, more reliable and affordable power to Victorian households, businesses and industries. It also will invest in the training and skills to build our clean energy workforce of the future.
