PN553 Coordinator Maritime Incident Response
We are seeking an experienced natural resource manager or incident management professional to manage responses to maritime and other incidents within the World Heritage Area. This includes (but is not limited to) oil spills and pollution, vessel groundings and sinking, and extreme weather events. These activities are often performed in partnership with several other government agencies. This position is part of the Reef Joint Field Management Program (the Program) for the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area (GBRWHA). The Program undertakes many key functions within the GBRWHA. Activities are delivered across the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park (Commonwealth, including Commonwealth islands), the Great Barrier Reef Coast Marine Park (State) and island national parks (State), which together comprise the World Heritage Area. The Program is jointly funded and managed by the Australian and Queensland Governments.
The position plays an important role in the management of best practice vessel salvage, oil spill response and other incident management activities as well as site remediation to facilitate recovery of the values of the GBRWHA. The position provides environmental advice within the agency and to partner agencies during incident management. The position plays a key role in the Program’s maritime incident response operations. The position will be required to participate in the on-call roster and some response activities may require work away from the office, on weekends, public holidays or potentially some after hours activities.
The suitable candidate will be agile and adaptive in the way they work, open to change and willing to explore innovative ways of working. When you work for us, you understand that leadership exists at all levels and you display this at all times. You work collaboratively to deliver results and display the personal drive and integrity expected of an Australian Public Service (APS) employee.
