Resourceful, creative individuals willing to always pack a raincoat and sunscreen (i.e. be prepared for anything!) need only apply. 

You love our history and can see untapped potential in telling the world to Just Head West.  You’re prepared to stay the course and aren’t afraid to ask the hard questions.

You have a way with words and can have a go at writing media releases, reports and briefings whilst staying ahead of the game by monitoring Council’s communications channels (you know, Facebook and Twitter).

We can only move forward by working together so you need to be a team player, working closely with all areas of Council to make sure messages are heard loud and clear.

There’s no leaning on shovels and endless coffee breaks here – with a focus firmly on getting things done you will need to be able to juggle several tasks and deadlines at once.  Actual juggling skills might come in handy too.

We want you to still get out and breathe the fresh mountain air, so we won’t be asking for full time hours of work – just three days a week.  Flexibility is the key though – we know news doesn’t happen to schedule so sometimes you’ll need to be able to work outside normal office hours.

You might be a seasoned media professional or someone looking to start their first career but if any of the above got you interested, we’d love to hear from you.

But we don’t just want the usual job application.  Hit us with your creativity when addressing the selection criteria.  Send us in some of your work (if you have any). Really show us what you’ve got by writing a short media release announcing you’ve been appointed as the new West Coast Council Media and Communications Officer!

A position description is available below (hint: this website is also a good place to check out for info on Council operations!)

If you’re passionate and excited about this opportunity but a bit wary of the position description, please give us a call so we can have a chat.

Applications addressing the Selection Criteria, including a current resume, covering letter and media release should be marked ‘Confidential – Media & Communications Officer’, and forwarded to the Manager Corporate & Strategic Services by Friday 21 December 2018.
