Workplace Relations Advisor - Part Time

Do you have a passion for all things industrial relations, a desire for work life flexibility and an appreciation of working with enthusiastic colleagues and Members who will benefit from your expertise? If you do, then read on…

We have a part time role (23 hours per week) with the potential to build from the ground up. With a well established group of Members, and opportunity for growth, your role will be key in expanding the current service offerings available to MIAL members.

ABOUT MIAL

Maritime Industry Australia Ltd (MIAL) is a member-based industry association that advocates on behalf of members and the maritime industry. The Australian maritime industry is an exciting industry with limitless potential. As a peak body representing a very broad range of operators in the Australian maritime space, MIAL is well placed to influence and impact in a range of areas, none more so than workplace relations.

As a small supportive team, MIAL has an all hands on deck approach. You will be exposed to all facets of the Australian maritime industry, and with possible opportunities for domestic travel - working for MIAL is never boring. 

THE ROLE

MIAL's Workplace Relations Advisor will be adaptable, approachable with a service delivery attitude and the capacity to tailor advice from small operators to multi-nationals. No two businesses are the same, and you will use a fine tuned IR/HR radar to judge the needs of Members and work with them across a variety of matters, including:

  • Enterprise Bargaining – from paperwork to strategy, providing the benefit of your experience and expertise from the start of the bargaining process until lodgement with the Fair Work Commission.
  • Conciliation – by phone or in person, assisting with the resolution of workplace disputes and other Commission proceedings;
  • Advocacy – before the Commission for proceedings involving maritime awards as may be required by MIAL Members;
  • HR/IR Best practice – prevention is better than cure and you can provide ideas and solutions to prevent HR/IR issues before they arise;
  • Writing articles and case studies – as employment law develops so too must maritime employers – help keep them up to date with interesting issues and case studies in our weekly communique and quarterly magazine.
  • Spreading the knowledge – MIAL gets great satisfaction from contributing to building capacity within our Members - developing and delivering HR/IR training courses is one of a number of ways we can contribute;
  • Assisting with the ongoing development and improvement of existing member service products while identifying new opportunities for product development. What can we develop to make our Members lives easier;
  • Business development – while there is no strong sales pitch required, making sure Members are aware of the service offering will be part of the early evolution of this key role.
  • Other duties as required from time to time.

ABOUT YOU

You are: 

  • an adaptable, independent thinker with strong research and analytical skills and a willingness to learn;
  • an effective communicator, with a particular skill in articulating complex information in written form;
  • someone who values attention to detail with the ability to produce quality material with a high level of accuracy;
  • someone who enjoys working closely with other HR/IR practitioners;
  • able to work autonomously and as part of a team while maintaining high professional standards.

You have:

  • an understanding of Australia's Workplace Relations system including the Fair Work Act and other areas of employment law;
  • experience with and exposure to industries with a strong union presence.
  • awareness of Australian's system of government and a demonstrated interest in the political landscape;
  • the ability to maintain confidentiality and discern what might be commercially and industrially sensitive information;
  • experience in comprehending and communicating detailed, complex information quickly.  
  • the ability to prioritise time-critical work projects and adjust to changing priorities.
  • proficiency with the Microsoft office suite.

Even better...any of the following would be highly regarded:

  • demonstrated consultancy or in-house experience in HR/IR;
  • knowledge and understanding of the Australian maritime industry or another highly regulated industrial environment and related challenges;
  • previous experience with the Fair Work Commission.

We offer a flexible, friendly, supportive work environment.  This is a newly created role and you will have the opportunity to make this position your own!
