How would you like to work in a team that has a real impact on the trade and investment agenda of Australia’s largest State? Are you interested in international relations? Do you have a real passion for advancing NSW’s relations with the United States, the United Kingdom or the United Arab Emirates? Then this job is for you!


There is an exciting opportunity in the Americas, Europe & Middle East International Market Development team within our Industry, Trade and Investment branch.


In the role of Project Officer, you will be instrumental in supporting the delivery of a range of projects, including operational policy and procedure development and legislative reform on the trade and investment agenda of Australia’s largest state.


This dynamic and high profile team is responsible for a broad range of initiatives across a diverse set of markets from business development to project facilitation, from government-to-government relations to the delivery of trade missions and in- and out-bound official delegations - all at the intersection of business and government.

We are looking for someone who thrives in a high pressure and sometimes ambiguous environment, has well developed communication skills – written and verbal - and demonstrates initiative. You are comfortable supporting complex projects and stakeholder relationships with professionalism and integrity.
