About the Role

We are currently seeking applications for the temporary full-time role (37.5 hours per week) of Project Manager – Client Risk Assessment and Management Project, located at our Support Services in Eight Mile Plains. This role is being offered on a temporary contract basis for seven months. 


This position will deliver project outputs for the Client Risk Assessment and Management Project, and provide overall coordination and project support to ensure the successful completion and implementation of the project outputs across RAQ. Key project outputs include updating RAQ’s overarching framework for risk assessment and management, risk case noting guides, risk screening and assessment practises, and other risk management resources, as well as liaising with our Learning and Development team to update the online training content and determining the assessment approaches for assessing staff competencies in risk assessment and management.


The key responsibilities of this position include:

  • Researching evidence-based, contemporary risk assessment and management frameworks, screening measures, and suitable methods of assessing staff competencies in risk assessment and management practices
  • Identifying the minimum risk assessment and management knowledge and skills that need to be assessed, and relevant assessment methods, to be implemented
  • Writing overall risk framework and accompanying documentation, e.g. assessment tools and guides
  • Coordinating and managing all aspects of the project, following best practice project management protocols, including setting up and attending project team meetings; setting up working groups across the business to provide input and feedback; monitoring progress; regular, timely reporting on progress to key stakeholders and other project staff; and collaboratively problem solving to ensure project outputs are delivered on time and to a high quality.
