The Committee is hiring a Mobility Program Director

February 5, 2020

Do you have what it takes to help shape Sydney and make a good city great?

Build your career with one of Sydney’s most dynamic and influential organisations.

The Committee for Sydney is an independent champion and think-tank for Greater Sydney, developing innovative evidence-based policy beyond the electoral cycle. The Committee has members from across the private, public and not for profit sectors and engages with business leaders, politicians, government and other stakeholders in policy discussions that affect the global competitiveness of Sydney as a business centre and as a place to live. The Committee’s focus is on making a good city great.

The Committee has a small, dynamic staff team of thought leaders and practitioners of public policy and is a platform for change agents to make an impact and accelerate their careers.

The Committee is proud to be a leading voice on mobility challenges and opportunities for Greater Sydney. Our policy work has informed and influenced government policy on mobility and city planning in many areas. We are passionate about driving a mobility revolution, where:

  • Every person in Sydney has access to high quality, high speed public transport – primarily trains, supplemented by rapid buses and ferries.
  • Every person will be connected to a neighbourhood town centre where they can walk to services and enjoy public life.
  • Every person can cycle safely wherever they want.
  • People will have more than one option for most trips, so choice will increase.
  • Trips that still require a car will be easier because there are far fewer people competing for existing space.

This position is an exciting new role at the Committee that will lead on our mobility research, policy and advocacy agenda. This sits across 5 areas of work:

  • Research

This role will coordinate and develop research – internally with the Committee team and with external researchers – to identify recommendations to change our mobility system.

  • Convening

This role will convene experts, stakeholders and decisions makers to understand issues and drive collaboration.

  • Communications

This role will be the ‘face’ of our advocacy related to mobility – speaking to media, communicating with members and stakeholders and briefing decision makers.  

  • Advocacy

This role will develop an understanding of what changes need to be made by whom and deliver campaigns and advocacy to achieve these changes.

  • Technical Assistance

This role will work closely with government and other stakeholders to provide expert mobility-related advice to implement the changes achieved through our work.
