Mass job opportunities in Victoria

Melbourne’s lockdown has been extended and Australia as a whole is way behind the developed world in its covid vaccinations regime. It seems we’ll be on this rollercoaster for a while and the Victorian Government is staffing up as a response with mass recruitment exercise.

There’s a call out for 100 Authorised Officers, with a short-term contract until the end of July 2021. A short-term role may not sound like a compelling proposition to many people. However, these contracts are often extended and talented staff may quickly find other opportunities based on their performance in these roles. If you are currently unemployed, underemployed, or have been struggling to get some experience under your belt, this is a fantastic opportunity.

Authorised Officers (AO) are quite unique roles, with powers most other public servants don’t have. They support voluntary compliance and enforcement of legislation in a variety of government departments. These positions “will undertake the crucial task of monitoring and maintaining COVID-19 restrictions. You will help ensure business owners and individuals comply with the requirements of the Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008.”
