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 a Technical Writer on a contract for 4 Months, with potential extensions of 2X 6 months.

Position Overview

Our Client is responsible for delivery of the Permissions Capability that can underpin the modernisation of visa and citizenship services delivery with a department, which can then be reused across agencies for other permissions-based services. The client is the policy owner for reuse of the Permissions Capability across government. This role is responsible for working with a technical representative of a selected provider, along with Business, Information and Data Architects within the Taskforce, to develop a technical artefact that captures the design of Permissions Capability for future use across government. This role will be responsible for the delivery and maintenance of this artefact, which aims to deliver the earliest value of reuse and enable consuming agencies access to leverage the learnings of the Permissions Capability progressively as the foundational work matures.

  • Confidently explain your design decisions and rationale and be open to and encourage critique

Our Ideal Candidate will have:

  • Demonstrated experience in identifying and developing technical artefacts
