Analysis and Research Officer
Clerk Grade 7/8
Department of Family & Community Services
Ongoing Full Time
Location: Burwood, Sydney
Salary Range: $94,782 pa - $104,918 pa plus employer's contribution to superannuation and annual leave loading.
The Department of Family and Community Services (FACS) directly supports approximately 800,000 people every year and reaches a further million people through local community-based programs.
Our vision is to empower all people to live fulfilling lives and achieve their potential in inclusive communities. We collaborate with government, non-government and community partners to work with children, adults, families and communities to improve lives and realise potential, with a focus on breaking, rather than managing, disadvantage.
The Registrar of Community Housing aims to ensure a well governed, well managed and viable community housing sector that meets the housing needs of tenants and provides assurance for government and investors.
Who we are
The Registrar is an independent statutory officer appointed by the NSW Minister for Family and Community Services to carry out the functions established under the National Law for community housing providers.
The Registrar is assisted to carry out these functions by a small staff of financial analysts, analysts and regulatory support officers.
The Registrar has also been tasked by the Minister to establish a local scheme for registration of housing providers in NSW that cannot meet some of the legislated criteria for the National Scheme. In the first instance (in 2017/18), this relates to the registration of Local Aboriginal Land Councils.
About the Opportunity
The primary purpose of this role is to undertake general pattern and trend analysis into business behaviours and market trends, impacting the provision of community housing. Collating material and writing product designed for public knowledge or government decision-making is central to this role. The role will support the Senior Analysis and Research Officer in shaping and evaluating regulatory campaigns, reporting and capacity building. This includes regulatory communications and managing the intelligence relationship with various government and representative bodies. The role is also responsive to the Registrar’s investigations and assessment managers in deriving trends from cases and evaluating regulatory performance. The role is central to the Registrar’s focus on identifying and introducing better practices into the Scheme.
The skills and techniques relevant to this role are derived from research, intelligence, analysis, project management, case management and quality assurance. A background in regulation is preferred.
There is one ongoing full-time role being offered in accordance with the Government Sector Employment Act 2013.
A Recruitment Pool may be created to fill similar roles for both ongoing and temporary opportunities if and as they arise.
Appointments are subject to reference checks. Some roles may also require the following checks/ clearances:
