About Melton City Council

The City of Melton is a community where everyone belongs. Ours is a vibrant and diverse municipality—one of the fastest developing in Australia. Our organisation strives to provide our community with state-of-the-art amenity and facilities, engaging health and wellbeing options, and support to become active members of our Lifelong Learning City.

We invest in innovation, offering professional and personal development, and generous leave and flexibility to staff, while also fostering a collaborative and inclusive culture. You’ll be able to work close to home in a dynamic setting featuring cafes and retail options set amongst heritage buildings and open green spaces.

The Opportunity

This is a rare opportunity to join a Council which is going through huge transformation. Part of such transformation is the establishment of a new Contract Management team. A brand-new team to be set up who can support Council in managing their contracts effectively and efficiently.

The first Contract Management Specialist started in April and now we are looking for our second team member. This role will offer the right candidate a chance to impart their expertise to stakeholders to help drive change and further improvement. A chance to be part of a new journey in developing systems, processes and improvements.

If you are excited by a role that delivers tangible impacts in your workplace and to your community, then this is the role for you.

Being part of a new team set up and helping to establish a Contract Management Framework, Policy and Procedure is a rare opportunity to add to your CV and skillset.

A senior role in a newly established Contract Management team, the Contract Management Specialist will provide specialist advice and guidance to the whole of Council.

Key Responsibilities

This new role is pivotal in helping to create a Contract Management Framework that delivers guidance, advice and process to Council. Joining a team that is being established from the ground up means the ideal candidate will require a can-do attitude, positive communication and a proactive stakeholder engagement approach.

The role is responsible for being the SME on all Contract Management activities and will be heavily involved in the following:

  • Testing and roll out of a new Contract Management System (CMS) across whole of Council.
  • Facilitate contract management activities to ensure integrity of processes while driving value for money outcomes.
  • Support the creation and delivery of a Contract Management Framework.
  • Develop contract management intelligence from a range of data sources to inform contract decisions, support performance improvement and identify potential issues and opportunities.
