An exciting opportunity exists for an individual with suitable experience and knowledge to undertake the role of Senior Adviser – Executive Accountability and Oversight within our Safety and Integrity Division at our Perth Office.  This position may be filled on an ongoing (permanent) or non-ongoing (fixed-term) basis for an initial period of up to 18 months, with possible extension dependent upon NOPSEMA’s business requirements.

Reporting to the Head of Division of Safety and Integrity, you will provide support to NOPSEMA initiatives to further develop existing knowledge in relation to executive accountability and oversight across the offshore energy industry and other industries where executive accountability and oversight is of key importance and can provide insights to the offshore energy industry. You will specifically be responsible for developing and supporting the promotion of executive oversight and accountability in relation to health and safety, well integrity, environmental and decommissioning performance across the offshore energy industry.
