Are you an experienced manager with a passion for regulation, the public sector and the important role they play?

Looking for a flexible, dynamic and diverse workplace with flexibility to work from either Sydney, Melbourne or Canberra?

This is a great opportunity for an intelligent and driven leader to step into the lead role in a rapidly growing team and work on essential policy aimed at improving payment times for small business across Australia. 

This is proper "Big P'' policy work - horizon scanning, stakeholder engagement, Ministerial office liaison, QTB's, parliamentary processes - the whole lifecycle. 

What's the work?

Leading a small team currently in place, you will be looking to mentor, develop and grow your team to deliver important regulatory oversight in the Australian economy. Planning and allocating resources to meet current and future work priorities, lead policy development, work on reforms and legislative reviews, draft discussion papers, briefs and legislation instructions. You will work closely with Law Division to develop and introduce legislation relating to the Payment Times Reporting Act 2020 as required.
You will be required to interpret legislation, think critically, and provide advice, analysis and evaluation of relevant public policy. 

What's great about this role?

Opportunity for someone with strong policy background to learn from a talented EL2 in the area of law design - you will learn how to put legislation through parliament, understand all the rules on amendments and how to seek approval. Essentially the whole process of law design!

Work with a team of intelligent, agile and dynamic people who are passionate about what the do and more importantly why!

Be part of an impressive leadership group!

What will you need to be successful?

A solid understanding of both government and regulatory policy will be key to your success here, along with a background in legal.

Prior experience leading a team - from the front. You can teach, show and do! You will also have excellent written and oral communication skills, with the ability to convey complex issues to non-expert audiences.

Prior experience in financial regulation, tax law, accounting/audit/assurance, legal practice would be highly regarded. As would any experience in government investigations, administrative tribunals, essentially the ability to build a brief of evidence within a tight compliance environment.

This is available as an ongoing or long-term non-ongoing position! Please apply today or reach out to Alex Elliott on 0468 554 655 (alex@elliottgray.com.au) for a confidential discussion about how this role will help you achieve your career goals!
