The Executive Officer’s role is a permanent full-time position based in the Lachlan, although we may also consider those who prefer to work part-time. The role is to advocate and promote long-term sustainability of the irrigation industry, provide information to members, develop policy on behalf of members, interact with Government agencies and make representations to politicians. It also requires working closely with the LVW committee to support the decision-making and advocacy process effectively. The committee is now looking to employ a new Executive Officer.

The key responsibilities are:

* Engage with Lachlan Valley Water members to identify water management and other policy issues that affect members
* Develop policies and strategies in consultation with the organisation’s committee
* Represent members at all levels of Government and with industry and other organisations
* Monitor changes to water policy and prepare submissions representing members’ views
* Communicate with members through newsletters, email, website and media means
* Manage the financial aspects of the business

The successful candidate will have strong written and verbal communication skills, the ability to think strategically, and sound financial and project management experience. Practical experience and understanding of the agricultural or rural sector is required, and tertiary qualifications in agriculture, business or management are preferred but not essential.

The Executive Officer is required to have a C class drivers licence and be able to travel throughout the region to meet with members.

An attractive remuneration package will be negotiated with the successful applicant commensurate with qualification and experience.
