- We are proud leaders and participants of internship programs that provide opportunities to people who identify as LGBTIQ, people living with a disability, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, refugees or asylum seekers or people from low socioeconomic backgrounds.
- We offer and encourage flexible work practices and purchased leave arrangements for all our employees to support wellbeing, family or carer commitments or other personal circumstances.
- We place great importance on growth, empowering our people to enhance their knowledge, capability and experience through continual learning, formal training and lessons learned.
- Health, safety and wellbeing are at the heart of what we do. We focus on the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of our people to create a safe and healthy workplace for everyone, every day, everywhere.
About the role
We’re not just about removing – we’re building, we’re connecting, we’re revitalising, and with the addition of 10 new level crossings to be removed the team at LXRP are busier than ever. There’s never been a better time to leap at the unique opportunity we have within our Industry Capability and Inclusion team.
As the Inclusion and Social Procurement Adviser, you will be responsible for supporting the design and implementation of strategies and initiatives targeted towards improving diversity, inclusion, and social procurement. Reporting to the Manager, Inclusion and Social Procurement, you will get the opportunity to collaborate with LXRP’s project delivery alliances, as well as relevant stakeholders across the major infrastructure industry to ensure social impact and inclusion targets are met.
Operating in a fast paced environment quite unlike other government departments you’ll soon find that no day is the same in the diversity and inclusion space, your remit will include:
- Leading the delivery of specific inclusion programs such as the Women in Transport Mentoring program, as well as the Scholarship program.
- Ensuring all initiatives and programs align with the current inclusion and social procurement government policies and strategies.
- Providing advice and guidance to the project alliance partners, supporting the achievement of mandated targets.
The Inclusion and Social Procurement Adviser is a 3 year fixed term, full time contract, paying between $102,637 – $124,183. Whilst based in our head office in the CBD, flexible working options are also available.
We are looking for individuals who have a strong sense of purpose in helping the LXRP team deliver on transforming the way Victorians live, work and travel. You will have prior experience supporting the design and delivery of inclusion and diversity programs. Through this experience you will have developed sound knowledge of social procurement best practices and benefits. Experience leading Indigenous employment and engagement strategies or supporting social impact programs will be highly regarded.
You will also be confident in your ability and experience facilitating meetings, workshops, and events in the inclusion space. Building meaningful relationships with a range of stakeholders will be second nature to you, as you provide expert advise to internal and external partners.
What else will you bring to the role?
- Strong understanding of existing inclusion and social procurement government policies and strategies, such as the Major Projects Skills Guarantee, the Social Procurement Framework, Aboriginal Employment Target, and the Victorian Gender Equality Strategy.
- Proficient in Microsoft Excel – the role will include collecting, analysing and manipulating data to better understand program outcomes and drive future initiatives.
- Ability to work autonomously. Whilst collaborating is a huge part of the role, you will also be expected to independently lead programs.
- Strong planning and prioritisation skills – we work in a fast paced environment where you have to adapt to changes on a daily basis.
