Diversity and inclusion are core values of the Department of Regional NSW. We encourage applications from people with a range of backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. This includes differences in culture, gender, sexual orientation, language and disability status or other attributes. The Department of Regional NSW is a workplace where everyone is able to contribute and participate to their full potential, and we are proud to have a team that reflects the richness and complexity of the regional NSW communities we serve.

Who is the NSW Department of Primary Industries? Why work for us?

The NSW Department of Primary Industries (NSW DPI) is part of the Department of Regional NSW (DRNSW). It delivers a broad range of initiatives across the State including research and development to grow our agriculture, fisheries and forestry sectors; and regulation and administration of biosecurity, food safety, animal welfare and hunting in NSW.

NSW DPI also has a range of responsibilities to prepare, respond to and assist in recovery from animal and plant biosecurity emergencies, natural disasters and other emergencies affecting the sector, as well as international market access support and export enhancement across a range of products and industries.

About the role:

With a fast-growing focus on digital across NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI), we are seeking a dynamic professional to join a small team focused on transforming DPI services through digital. You will be known for your relentless pursuit of delivering quality services to meet customer needs, and your commitment to driving culture and accelerating outcomes through new ways of working.

As Senior Project Officer, Digital Transformation, you will collaborate to deliver initiatives to drive digital strategy, transformation and culture across DPI. You will have the opportunity to work in multi-disciplinary teams on human-centred and agile projects to deliver exceptional customer experiences, streamline operational efficiency and ensure NSW DPI is fit for the digital future.

About you:

You will have strong, demonstrated experience in strategic design through developing and delivering high quality projects and business impact. Applied experience in designing and delivering initiatives to drive cultural change, particularly in relation to digital transformation, is desirable.

Experience in delivering digital projects using Human Centred Design (HCD), Service Design (SD) and/or agile methodologies is desirable but not essential. You will, however, be able to demonstrate customer-centricity, empathy and the ability to embrace new ways of working. You will be supported to further develop HCD/SD capabilities as required.

Reporting to the Manager, Digital Transformation, you will have the autonomy to identify and develop opportunities for transformation, partnering strategically to deliver ambitious outcomes for DPI and NSW primary industries. Your thought leadership and advice on best practice and opportunities for digital transformation will be most welcomed.

As a member of the Digital Transformation team, you will need an appetite for collaboration and confidence and skill in engaging with a wide range of stakeholders across the business. You will be curious, creative, and bold in the way you solve problems and identify opportunities for business transformation. You will have meticulous attention to detail and a talent for working autonomously, as part of a team and collaboratively across DPI.

How to Apply:

If this sounds like the ideal role for you, please apply via our online portal, submitting your resume and a brief cover letter outlining your suitability for this role by 30 January 2023 11.55pm.
