The opportunity

Our customers have a love-affair with the sea. It’s not hard to see why, considering that New South Wales is home to some of the most beautiful, recognisable and well-loved waterways in the world. Roads and Maritime is responsible for managing over 2,137km of coastline and 32,242km2 of navigable waterways, educating recreational and commercial patrons on responsible waterways usage. We’re passionate about working with the community to make sure that our waterways are safe, accessible and sustainable for generations to come. 

We are currently on the lookout for experienced coxswain who are interested in joining our awesome team of Boating Safety Officers, working on the front-line of community engagement on our waterways. With a state-of-the-art patrol boat as your daily office, and our pristine waters for a view, you will enjoy monitoring activity within your region and encouraging compliance with boating safety legislation through an education, liaison and enforcement approach. 

About you
 
If you love being out on the water, and have a desire to make a real difference in your local community, this might just be the perfect job for you. That being said, it’s not for everyone. You might occasionally find yourself in some uncomfortable situations with frustrated customers which will require you to remain calm under pressure and enforce compliance when needed. You’ll also need to be comfortable working alone and keeping yourself motivated. This role will also see you working most weekends when our waterways are at their busiest.

If you’re the experienced, tough, calm, motivated individual that we’re after, we want to hear from you! You’ll be joining a progressive organisation where you get to be a part of something bigger- safeguarding our waterways now and into the future.
