Job Vacancy: RFA NSW Project Officer

If you’re looking to get into a fishing related career, a position within the Recreational Fishing Alliance of NSW might be just the ticket. The RFA is currently on the lookout for a suitable candidate to fill a Recreational Fishing Access Project Officer role.

The peak volunteer recreational fishing body has been granted funding from the NSW Recreational Fishing Trusts for a project to ensure Crown lands and reserves adjacent to or accessing important recreational fishing locations are secured, protected and accessible for the fishing public in the future.

The RFA plans to contract the services of a project officer to identify parcels of Crown land which can be transferred into reserves dedicated for recreational fishing, under the Crown Lands Act, and to manage the processing of those transfers. The successful applicant will have an excellent understanding of government procedures and lands legislation, GIS mapping, computer, writing, reporting, negotiation and presentation skills.

Knowledge of the recreational and commercial fishing sectors and other stakeholders is desirable but not essential.

The workload will vary but it is anticipated the project will encompass at least 1, 500 hours during the project. The project officer will be strongly supported by an advisory panel and experts in government agencies but will be expected to work energetically, independently and proactively. The RFA will provide resources such as office equipment and software, a current driver’s licence is essential as car travel throughout regional NSW will be required and covered by a standard vehicle allowance and travel expenses.

The contract will start as soon as possible and may run over a period of approximately 8-18 months.

For further information, contact the Secretary, Recreational Fishing Alliance of NSW, PO Box 328, Matraville, NSW, 2036, or email .

Applications close 5pm Friday 5 November 2010.
