We are seeking an established and inspiring senior leader with a professional background in data and statistics to join our Executive Leadership Group.

As an SES Band 3 Officer, you are responsible for contributing to the leadership of the ABS through active involvement in executive decision making, representational activities and working collaboratively to provide strategic leadership and drive a culture of high performance.

You will have four direct reports, leading over 1,100 staff, located across Australia (we have offices in each capital city and Geelong) and be responsible for a range of functions that: source the data we use to produce statistics and insights; develop new methods of working with data to produce statistics; make data available to users through a range of channels; and develop and manage critical statistical infrastructure, such as registers and classifications, which are required to undertake the work of the ABS. This role also leads ABS’ pivotal contribution to governing and advancing the broader APS data ecosystem.

Your key clients include the ABS Executive Board (the Australian Statistician and two other Deputy Australian Statisticians), other areas of the ABS that use the data and infrastructure provided by the Data and Statistical Practices Group and researchers who analyse data from the data assets curated and managed by the ABS.
