The word "privacy" means different things to different people. The Privacy Commissioner works across business, government and the public to promote a culture in which personal information is protected and respected. 2019 will be an exciting year for the Office of the Privacy Commissioner, with a new Privacy Act being passed into law.

The Office investigates complaints about alleged breaches of privacy, and examines practices, polices and new legislation for its effect on privacy. It has strong communications, education, and outreach functions.

We're looking for a Communications Adviser to work collaboratively to achieve the objectives of the Office by providing communications, marketing and outreach services.

* Writing for a range of channels, including articles, speeches, blogs, case notes, newsletters, pamphlets, website, social media and more
* Content development and management of the Office's Annual Report
* Event planning and co-ordination
* Media liaison
* Social media management
* Development of online resources
* Marketing and promotional activities

You will have excellent communication skills, both oral and written, with the writing skills to produce high-quality written material for a wide variety of audiences across a range of media.

You must have good judgement, strong organisational skills and a proven ability to work collegially to achieve common goals.
