The Opportunity

The newly created Security and Transformation Branch is driving significant programs of cultural change, led through its Transformation Team. Working closely with the PM&C Executive, the Transformation Team is leading work to strengthen the Department’s protective security culture – developing a program of reform that reaches across people, systems and technology, and an associated communications strategy to underpin the change management process.

Protective security is critical to the PM&C mission, and a key enabler of our core business. Looking forward, PM&C Transformation also requires innovation in the way we consider and manage security. As our work becomes more agile and innovative – and our people more diverse, mobile, globally oriented and digitally connected – our security culture must adapt. The Transformation Team is also driving the next phase of PM&C's transformation agenda, developing and coordinating initiatives that celebrate success, enable leadership and empower staff. This role is an opportunity to play a leadership role in the delivery of two high-profile initiatives that reach across the entire Department, the APS more broadly, and represent key priorities for the Secretary and PM&C Executive.

The Senior Adviser will be responsible for:

  • Preparing strategic advice for the Executive, including high quality briefing material.
  • Building and nurturing stakeholder relationships, including Senior Executives across the Department, and key areas across Government.
  • Contributing to the design of significant programs of cultural change and associated communication strategies.
  • Coordinating the delivery of the cultural change program, working closely with the Executive, business areas and the PM&C Security Team.

Our Ideal Candidate

Our ideal candidate will possess strong communication skills and the ability to produce high quality written products for various audiences including the Office of the Secretary and the Executive.

They will approach policy challenges creatively and be flexible and responsive in a fast-paced environment. They will possess sound judgement and be able to work with members of the Executive and SES across PM&C to drive enduring cultural change.
