The Program

The Bushfire Resilience Program is a partnership between Monash University, the Paul Ramsay Foundation, Metal Manufactures Pty Ltd and The Australian Centre for Social Innovation formed in response to the 2019/2020 Australian bushfires. The Program will work in deep partnership with four communities affected by the bushfires over 5 years to develop an inclusive, participatory and evidence-based model for strengthening resilience across social, built, natural, institutional and economic domains. The consortium approach has a significant focus on supporting communities that experience disadvantage to lead their own local initiatives and connect with each other to create the capacity, conditions and solutions for their long-term resilience.

The Opportunity

As Data Manager you will take responsibility for leading the strategy, design and development of data management systems for this large transdisciplinary and applied research program involving both qualitative and quantitative data. This will include oversight and curation of a database to ensure systematic procedures for backup, security and the incorporation of new datasets. You will coordinate a range of research and data administration tasks including providing support for field and research activities, undertaking data acquisition, input, validation, management and analysis. You will also be developing and maintaining Program data sets and database, and preparing results, to meet research objectives, timeframes, protocols and regulatory compliance requirements.

Working closely with the Executive Lead – Network, your role will include implementing a best practice data governance and management approach, ensuring that data sovereignty and integrity is maintained and that data management systems support the Program’s ambition and impact, including the recommendation of data system improvements.

As the successful candidate you will have a proven ability to design and deliver data management systems for complex programs and substantial knowledge of data transparency and accessibility, including tools and approaches for making data available to communities and other stakeholders. You will have excellent management and customer service skills and a proven ability to provide authoritative technical and policy advice at a high level.

This is an ideal opportunity to drive real, substantial change and make a significant positive impact to local communities. If you believe you can fulfil these requirements, you are strongly encouraged to apply.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated. Travel to rural and regional project sites in NSW and Victoria will be required.
