JOB DESCRIPTION

Associate Director – Outcome and Expenditure Review

  • Join a World Class Organisation
  • Lead and develop a small team of highly capable professionals
  • Drive the direction to identify savings and reform opportunities

About Us

As the NSW Government’s principal financial and economic adviser, Treasury’s role is to enable the Government to deliver its promise to support the people of New South Wales (NSW), and look to 2021 with renewed ambition to forge a brighter future in a prosperous and confident post-pandemic economy.

As part of our vision to become a World Class Treasury, we believe Treasury has a primary role in supporting and investing in our key partners (service delivery clusters).

Our responsibility includes lifting financial management capability and culture across the sector and supporting the NSW Treasurer’s priorities: economic growth, achieving fiscal repair and delivering economic reform, working swiftly to produce implementation plans for each priority.

The Team and the Role

NSW is experiencing an unprecedented economic challenge driven by the COVID-19 pandemic. The economic disruption calls for greater innovation, resilience and productivity in the delivery of goods and services across the public sector. To ensure NSW State Finances return to a sustainable trajectory, the Government approved a targeted review of public sector outcomes, as part of NSW’s medium-term budget sustainability strategy (the Fiscal Repair Program).

The objective of the review program is to identify reform opportunities and provide options to Government to support the economy and jobs in the short-term while assisting in returning the budget to a sustainable operating position into the medium-term (10 years). 

The Fiscal Repair Program is led by a Steering Committee, comprised of the Secretaries for Premier and Cabinet (Chair), Treasury and Regional NSW.

As the Associate Director in the Outcome and Expenditure Review team, you will drive the direction and scope of work for your workstream as well as recommendations for the review. You will work with subject matter experts to undertake the expenditure review and evaluation work, providing advice to the Steering committee. You will lead a team of more junior analysts to undertake research and analysis to identify savings and reform opportunities, as well as identifying associated risks and mitigation strategies.

Essential Requirements

  • Experience in financial due diligence, expenditure reviews and evaluation and policy reform and design would be highly regarded
  • Demonstrated experience in succeeding in high pressure, dynamic and innovative environments
  • Experience managing multiple stakeholders, and strong communication and interpersonal skills
  • Ability to clearly convey technical and complex information in different ways (verbal, written and visual) appropriate to the audience and its purpose
  • Experience managing projects and teams
