The EPA is Victoria’s environment regulator – preventing and reducing harmful effects of pollution and waste on the environment, amenity and human health.

This role sits within the Permissioning and Development Branch, which leads the EPA’s role as a referral authority for planning and other statutory decisions. We provide compelling and influential advice to ensure the prevention of harm to the environment, amenity and human health is considered in planning processes.

As a Senior Planning Advisor, you will be responsible for providing advice on strategic planning matters – including precinct structure plans (PSP), urban renewal projects, planning scheme amendments and planning policy – from the environment protection standpoint. You will also fulfill EPA’s role as referral authority for all planning decisions.

The ideal candidate will demonstrate strong technical planning experience – would be very suitable for a Senior and expert Strategic Planner in local government wanting to make a switch to State Government. This role is also ideal for an experienced Planning Consultant (Senior/Associate Director) in the private sector who is looking to pivot to government.

The culture is collegiate, understanding, friendly and dynamic. Aside from the competitive salary packages, the EPA also prides itself in offering fantastic work conditions and flexibility e.g. hybrid working or 9-day fortnight – which can be negotiated with the successful candidate.
