Do you enjoy working in a dynamic and team orientated environment, applying strategic thinking, communication and critical analysis skills to achieve outcomes?

ACT Treasury, within the Chief Minister, Treasury and Economic Development Directorate (CMTEDD), has a temporary opportunity for a suitably qualified and experienced individual to take a senior role in the development and coordination of budget processes. The successful applicant will be required to take a leading role in developing and coordinating policy advice and financial modelling to inform the government’s fiscal strategy and decision-making processes. Other areas of focus include managing the budget consultation process, coordinating a range of whole-of-government processes (such as responses to ACT Legislative Assembly committee reports), and assisting with the drafting and production of budget documents and other publications. A significant portion of the role entails collaborating with senior internal and external colleagues, including agency partners, and the successful applicant will need to be able to think strategically from a whole-of-government perspective, demonstrate resilience and possess well-developed leadership skills. The successful applicant must have excellent attention to detail and communication and numeracy skills, including the ability to write/edit at a publication-ready standard and produce/verify complex financial information and models. The role also requires working to tight deadlines across competing priorities, and a willingness to work extended hours in periods of high demand to address organisational needs.

Chief Minister, Treasury and Economic Development Directorate (CMTEDD) supports workforce diversity and is committed to creating an inclusive workplace. As part of this commitment, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people with disability and those who identify as LGBTIQ are encouraged to apply.

Eligibility/Other requirements: Tertiary or post graduate qualifications in business, accounting, commerce, economics, finance or a similar field are highly desirable or, alternatively, tertiary qualifications in another field combined with strong numeracy skills gained through experience in financial analysis and reporting is highly desirable.
