As one of the Australia's largest providers of human resources solutions, Chandler Macleod has a proven track record of unleashing potential in people and companies. For over 40 years Chandler Macleod's recruitment business has connected leading-edge projects and employers with outstanding business professionals.

Our Federal Government client is seeking to engage an EL1 Project Manager on a contract until June 2021, with potential extensions of 12 months.

Position Overview

This position is responsible for the review, development, maintenance and publication of the Psychology Services Manual (PSYMAN). PSYMAN provides professional policy and procedural guidance governing the conduct and provision of Occupational Suitability Assessments within the client.

Publication requirements underpinning formal policy and procedural manuals and administrative instructions continues to evolve, with such documents necessarily becoming more user-focussed and user-friendly, and less bureaucratic/academic in nature. However, despite the apparent 'de-formalisation' of the policy development and review cycle, project governance remains a critical core component of the process.

As a Team Lead of a small team, the successful candidate will be expected to design and lead various projects (both technically and project management-wise) underpinning the re-development and ongoing maintenance of PSYMAN, and both develop and participate in the PSYMAN governance process.

Duties & Responsibilities:

  • Design, develop, manage and evaluate project aims, objectives and outputs underpinning the review, re-development, maintenance and governance of the PSYMAN
  • Engage and collaborate with key stakeholders to identify opportunities, achieve outcomes and facilitate cooperation in redeveloping the PSYMAN to contemporary publication standards
  • Coordinate or participate in committees, representing the Director's position in consideration of more complex issues, as required
  • Develop complex policy and procedural documents for review and publication
  • Prepare and review draft reports, briefing papers and discussion papers for presentation to stakeholders, senior Executive staff, and professional groups
  • Liaise with internal and external stakeholders, participate in committees and use networks across the client and the professional environment in order to develop appropriate policy guidance and provide advice to senior management

Mandatory Requirements:

  • The successful candidate will be required to have Baseline clearance.
