As the Executive Director, Science Delivery and Knowledge you will lead the delivery of significant science programs to improve environment and natural resource management knowledge within an ever-changing environment and deliver this knowledge to policy and other decision-makers.
The Executive Director will ensure that any legislation, policies or plans developed by the Queensland Government to deliver environmental outcomes are solidly based on, and informed by, scientific advice and information.
The Department of Environment and Science (DES) recognises the enormous value a clean environment, innovative society and economy, and vibrant culture makes to Queenslanders’ lives. As a diverse organisation, the department brings together environment, heritage protection, national parks, science and arts functions to help achieve government objectives for a better Queensland.
DES has a culture which values results, professional growth, workforce diversity and a healthy balance between work and life commitments. As a DES employee, you will be actively encouraged and supported as an individual in an inclusive environment embracing our differences and applying diverse and inclusive thinking to our business. DES is committed to the values of the Queensland Public Service: customers first; ideas into action; unleash potential; be courageous; and empower people.
Science Delivery and Knowledge (comprising around 345 FTEs) provides scientific and technical advice and services to government agencies, industry and the community. The science delivered underpins environmental and natural resource management and decision making, and the legislative responsibilities of government agencies.
Our science enables the responsible use of our natural resources and the protection and preservation of our pristine environments. The client base of the Division continually expands supporting a continually widening group of State Government agencies.
