The role will oversee the development and management of an overarching community engagement framework that forms an integral element for the Community and Stakeholder Strategic direction.  A fundamental component within this role is the ability to prioritise and build relationships with strategic community groups/partners who have a broad reach and influence throughout the community. 

In addition the role will be charged with developing and leading the community engagement framework, focusing our efforts on identifying and building effective relationships with influential community partners.

We manage performance based on outcomes, not on the time you clock in or out of the office. A solid professional relationship relies on flexibility and we are happy to lead the charge in this regard.


Let your passion flow in a challenging role and be proud to work for an innovative and progressive company that leverages new and emerging resources and technologies to meet the community’s future needs.
