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:
One of the best parts about working in strategic design assurance?
It’s probably the fact you’re helping people and businesses make better decisions every day. There’s something rewarding about bringing a certain comfort and confidence to the table on the back of your work.
Watching your assurance on strategies, plans and processes come to life feels like a huge success. Especially when you’re delivering a high-level strategy that’s manageable and sustainable.
In this role as the Principal – Strategic Design Assurance, you’re carefully studying a large, complex business for relationships between strategic processes, conditions and tasks. It’s your fine eye that ensures issues, risks and challenges are understood and addressed.
It’s the drive in you that ensures quality processes, information, application and technology domain standards across a business are consistently met. Your appetite for risk impact assessments helps you recommend proposals that lead to the right ROI, benefits and outcomes.
No two days will be the same and your work can’t ever be described as boring. Not when you’re providing strategic guidance and advice across a business of 3,000+ people. Or defining and maintaining standards, templates and processes that’ll align with Water Corporation’s overall strategic intent.
You’ll form an important part of a highly-collaborative, supportive team that ensures every process change escalation fits comfortably within the organisation’s approved architecture. One of the highlights of this role is, you won’t be managing a team of people. It’s a leadership-level role without the everyday people management.
You’ll work in Leederville. It’s a trendy suburb without the noise of the city, but only 5 minutes away if that’s your thing. And it’s only a 5-minute stroll from the train station to your desk.
You’ll learn a lot from your colleagues in the SPO. Like you, they’re joining because they want to see their ideas and insights on strategy unfold. It’s the sort 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.
This is a permanent, full-time role with the flexibility to work hours that fit in with your personal life. If you need to drop off and pick up the children from school, go ahead. No questions asked.
Key Skills and Experience:
To hit the ground running in this role, you’ll have a degree in Technology, Business, Engineering or a related discipline.
You’ll also have extensive experience and demonstrated capability in the definition of portfolio assurance across a large complex business.
When the rate of change gathers pace, you’ll be able to hit the ground running with your broad experience of enterprise-wide governance frameworks.
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.
As part of the recruitment process you may be required to complete pre-employment screening which may include a medical, qualification check, police clearance and Australian working rights check.
Applications close 14 September 2020.
