Job description

As a Change Management Officer, you can bring different specialist skillsets to focus on the impact of change. This involves focusing on the 'human factors' of change - identifying the impact on people, achieving 'readiness' for change, and mitigating risks to adoption and usage.

It also includes working as part of a multidisciplinary team to ensure good project communications and good project engagement to drive overarching project success.

The department uses both a waterfall and Agile approach to organisational change management, each with supporting tools and templates.

You would be expected to use these to create consistency, increase change management maturity, and deliver rapid, fit-for-purpose adoption and usage solutions. Change Management officers are supported in their role and will not necessarily be in a 'lead' position, therefore we encourage all applicants with strong skillsets in the following areas to apply:

  • Organisational Change Management (junior through to experienced)
  • Change Impact Analysis and the identification of Change Particulars
  • Change-Communications and mapping of Change Stories
  • Learning and Support Solutions
  • Stakeholder Engagement Positions are based in our Canberra offices.


  • Demonstrated experience in formal OCM methods, approaches and industry best practice (i.e. PROSCI, CMI, CMBoK) or Demonstrated experience in an APS or local level Government department using their mature organisational change management approach.
  • Experience conducting workshops to identify and agree on adoption and usage goals and risks.
  • Experience designing appropriate change management interventions to minimise risk to delivery of project goals and to disruption to departmental business outcomes.
  • Demonstrated ability to work collaboratively with the Project Manager to incorporate change management activities into the project plan and schedule utilising available resources.
  • Demonstrated ability to deliver on agreed documents and activities.


  • Certification or formal tertiary qualifications in a change and/or transformational discipline
  • Previous DAWE experience.
  • SAFe Agile experience in working in a multi-disciplinary team.
