What we're looking for
At the SRO our people are our greatest asset, so recruiting and retaining the right candidate is very important.
Since we require a broad range of skills for the activities we undertake, there is more than one 'type' of person we seek to employ. For example, we need analytical thinkers for our policy roles to interpret complex legislative documents, and we need dynamic presenters for our tax education roles to deliver seminars to the public.
We expect our staff to be committed to the SRO's success and to demonstrate behaviours that reflect high levels of personal contribution, accountability, teamwork and trust. To maintain the Victorian community's confidence, all SRO employees must champion our corporate values:
