For this recruitment we are encouraging applications from people that are of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait islander descent because we are continuing to grow the diversity of our workforce. While all applications are welcome, once we have determined through merit-based assessment which candidates meet the pre-established standards of the role, we will select the candidate who is also of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait islander descent. This is because the Department acknowledges lived experience contributes a perspective valuable to our work with this community.

About us the Transforming Aboriginal Outcomes (TAO) Division is responsible for developing and implementing programs of work and projects to address DCJ's four Closing The Gap (CTG) socio-economic targets with our Coalition of Aboriginal Peak Organisations (CAPO) partners.

The TAO Family Violence Team is responsible for co-leading CTG Target 13, which is to reduce the rate of all forms of family violence and abuse against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and children by at least 50%, as progress towards zero, by 2031.

Your role the Senior Administration Officer provides a broad range of administrative services and leverages extensive business unit knowledge to support the unit's program of work and facilitate the delivery of business operations.

As part of the TAO Family Violence team, you will have the opportunity to communicate & collaborate with stakeholders to develop priorities and initiatives to reduce domestic and family violence against Aboriginal women and children. Use data, evidence and the perspectives of Aboriginal people with lived experience to shape policy and priorities in addressing domestic, family & sexual violence.

Work with Aboriginal communities across NSW to design and implement Aboriginal-led, placed-based solutions to address domestic, family & sexual violence, focusing on self-determination, early intervention and prevention, response, healing and recovery.

What we're looking for we are looking for someone who is self- motivated and who can work within a wider team to support the response to existing and emerging workloads. The ideal candidate will have demonstrated experience in providing secretarial and administrative support to Directors, Managers, and/or supervisors, team members, and working groups.

Demonstrated organisational skills, ability to meet urgent deadlines with minimal supervision and prioritise conflicting work commitments. Demonstrated verbal & written communication and interpersonal skills.

Demonstrated ability in supporting or preparing written correspondence, including emails, letters, briefs, and reports. Demonstrated ability to use or adapt to new systems, such as the use of Microsoft office tools and applications.

We focus on hiring people who share our commitment and goals of inclusion, collaboration, adaptability, courage and integrity. If you meet the essential requirements and the role resonates with you, please apply - you do not need to meet every desired requirement for us to want to talk to you.

We do work that really matters working for the Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ) provides lots of opportunities to make a real difference. We collaborate with other agencies and community partners, to improve lives and realise the potential of children, adults, families and communities. We're focused on breaking, rather than managing, disadvantage. It's work that really matters.
