Where can water take you?
Advancing your career will advance our community too.
Water Corporation exists to make WA a great place to live and invest by delivering water services safely, with the lowest environmental impact and at the lowest total cost. The Strategic Planning Office (SPO) is a newly-created, highly collaborative function, which will play a key role in enabling us to achieve this vision for our customers and community.
About the role:
The butterfly effect - Making one small change somewhere that leads to a non-linear impact elsewhere.
Working in process design is a bit similar. When you’re making change in a business, you’re asking yourself what effects that has elsewhere. It’s only when you’re bringing your A game to work every day that you’re helping to orchestrate change across a large, complex organisation.
As the Principal – Process Design Governance, you’re the process expert. You’re the highest escalation point for all enterprise-wide process designs and changes. You’re ensuring process management projects and programmes are within the company’s standards, rules and guidelines. You’re the person who makes sure everything is pulled together to shape and mature an effective process-led operating model.
In this role you’ll gather process initiatives from seven different business groups. It’s your work that helps the executive team have full visibility of where the business is – and where it’s heading.
Backed by the CEO and executive team, you’ll play an important part in developing and continuously improving high-level processes across the business. Processes that’ll continue to deliver outstanding value to customers and stakeholders. Your enterprise-wide guidance and advice is highly sought after. It’s the same advice that ensures process improvement opportunities can take shape.
On top of this, you’ll be part of a highly-collaborative, supportive team that ensures every process change escalation fits comfortably within the organisation’s approved architecture. The final piece in this the puzzle involves coaching the organisation to run processes in a cross-functional and collaborative way, so they align with the overall strategic direction.
You’ll work in Leederville. It’s a small, vibrant suburb with plenty of cafes and modern places to eat. And it’s only a 5-minute walk from the train station to your desk.
You’ll learn a stack of new knowledge and skills from your colleagues in the SPO. Like you, they’re joining because they want to see their ideas and insights on strategy come to life in a large, complex business. It’s the type of work that looks good on your CV and gets you promotions.
Speaking of which, Water Corporation has developed a savvy learning and development framework, which means you can add to your existing arsenal of skills and further your career with a company that actively promotes from within.
When you’re working with people who believe in you, it makes your job a lot more enjoyable. As does the flexibility to work hours that fit in with your family and personal life.
Key Skills and Experience:
If you’re wondering what qualifications you might need, a degree in Commerce or Business will have you on the right path straight away.
If you know how to map processes across large, complex organisations (think of 3,000+ people), you’ll know how to deliver a solid repertoire of business improvement results.
When the rate of change gathers pace, you’ll be able to hit the ground running with your broad understanding of enterprise-wide process management. The same level of scope that helps executive teams and CEOs make sound decisions.
Apply: If you are interested in the above opportunity please submit a covering letter and resume that best demonstrates your ability to meet the requirements of the role.
