Ranger - Local Government

Salary: Negotiable Location: Brisbane Ref: OM/0348
Description: Do you dream of a role working in the fresh, open air of Queensland?
Are you searching for a challenging, yet highly rewarding, work environment?
Do you pride yourself on your ability to educate and communicate effectively?
Searching for that one role which can truly become your career?

If you have answered yes to the above, then this might just be the first step in your future career. Our Local Government client has asked Osborne Richardson to deliver a Local Law Officer to join their existing team in a variety of roles.

Commencing on an initial 6 month contract, you will have the option to join the team permanently should you hit your progression targets. An opportunity which we certainly don't see very often and one which we are unlikely to see again anytime soon.

In this outstanding role, you will undertake the following duties:
• Effectively investigate requests from the public regarding animals, nuisances, regulated parking, local laws and other community response related matters
• Provide excellent customer service, advice, direction and solutions to the community in relation to breaches of legislation and local laws.
• Effectively manage customer requests and other tasks, ensuring that all matters are completed and final outcomes are communicated to customers and recorded onto council databases.
• Perform compliance patrols within the region and carry out the relevant legislative compliance action
• Participate in council's "After Hours On-Call" service.
• Provide reports and briefs to management and council and provide evidence in a court of law regarding investigations as required.
• Maintain and develop relationships with internal and external stakeholders that will increase the effectiveness of the team.
• Issue correspondence, compliance notices and penalty infringement notices for breaches of relevant State Government legislation, Local Laws and subordinate Local Laws.

With this in mind, we are seeking candidates who truly fit the role and see themselves joining the organisation for the long-term. Successful candidates will strongly identify with these traits and also hold the following skills and experience:
1. A compliance or investigative-based qualification such as a Certificate IV in Local Government will be advantageous yet not essential.
2. Demonstrated numeracy, written and verbal communication skills sufficient to complete paper work, read safety instructions, plans, and to effectively communicate with the public and team members.
3. Demonstrated experience in undertaking manual tasks in a safe manner.
4. Demonstrated industry skills and experience in the application of local law compliance activities.
5. Well-developed people and relationship skills with demonstrated ability to work in a team environment communicating and motivating effectively at all levels of the organisation, contributing to a positive work environment.
6. Demonstrated computer skills and competency associated with the position, such as the ability to use Pathway, Objective, Microsoft office suite, electronic infringement technology and mobile computing devices.

Previous Local Government or Private experience in a similar role is a distinct advantage for applicants however, all applicants are invited to outline how they meet the role requirements through their existing skills and experience.
