Work for us

Why work for us

The Municipal Association of Victoria is the peak representative and lobbying body for Victoria's 79 councils. We were formed in 1879 and the Municipal Association Act 1907 appointed the MAV the official voice of local government in Victoria.

Today, we are a driving and influential force behind a strong and strategically positioned local government sector. Our role is to represent and advocate the interests of local government, lobby for a 'fairer deal' for councils, raise the sector's profile, ensure its long-term security and provide policy advice, strategic advice, capacity building programs and insurance services to local government.

We value diversity and employ young people, mature-age workers, working parents, people with disabilities, and people from Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander and non-English speaking backgrounds.

Our motto is 'pro bono publico' – for the public good. Through our activities, we improve the lives of all Victorians and you can help us in our valuable work.

Our current job vacancies are posted on this page, LinkedIn and a number of job search websites.

Senior Manager, Scheme Performance for MAV WorkCare and MAV Insurance

We are seeking to appoint a Senior Manager, Scheme Performance to our MAV WorkCare and MAV Insurance team.

The MAV is responsible for managing workers’ compensation for local government, operating its services to council members as the MAV WorkCare Scheme (Scheme). The Scheme aims to support councils to achieve improved performance in claims, RTW and OHS management to, more broadly, position local government as an exemplar within the Victorian workers’ compensation environment. The MAV also provides scheme-based insurance services to Victorian councils and other entities, including public liability and professional indemnity insurance, and facilitates insurance through other programs, including LGE Health and the Commercial Crime Fund (Services).

The Senior Manager, Scheme Performance is a senior leadership role with broad responsibility for overseeing and managing multiple business functions at a Scheme-wide level, including financial, prudential and actuarial requirements together with relevant program, systems and regulatory requirements.

The role has particular responsibility for working directly with the General Managers to ensure that key strategic objectives are met as they relate to service quality, financial sustainability and growth.

You will have extensive leadership and management experience and a record of achievement in (and comprehensive understanding of) strategic planning, customer relationship management, financial management, information management (including actuarial modelling) and working with regulatory agencies.

Significant experience in broader scheme insurance operations as they relate to workers’ compensation, RTW, OHS and public liability, including direct exposure to third-party agency arrangements and associated regulatory requirements, will be highly regarded.

The package for this full-time position is between $150,000 to $160,000 per annum including superannuation, depending on experience and qualifications.
