The Opportunity
We are one of a growing number of teams around the world applying cutting edge research from psychology and behavioural economics to deliver better public services. We take the time to understand how people make decisions; diagnose barriers to behavioural change; develop innovative ideas for solving problems; and test what works best in the real world. Since 2016, we have delivered more than 30 major projects on issues covering heath, education, financial decision-making, energy, cyber security and much more. We know that diverse teams produce the best and most creative work. The successful candidate will join a diverse team of psychologists, economists, data analysts, policy practitioners and design experts. We value different skills and new ideas. We value each other, we value and celebrate our successes and we value learning together.
Our Ideal Candidate
Our ideal candidate is passionate about our mission and committed to working as part of a team that is driving innovation and improving the lives of Australians. Your colleagues would describe you as being an inclusive, constructive and valued team-player. You will enjoy applying your deep expertise to understanding human behaviour and designing practical solutions to help Australians put their good intentions into action.

To thrive in this role you will need:
  • Great people skills and a demonstrated ability to work collaboratively;
  • A solid foundation in psychology, behavioural economics or a related discipline, and a passion for applying this to a diverse range of real-life public policy problems;
  • Excellent project management skills and a commitment to delivering high quality work;
  • Strong communication skills, with the ability to speak and write in a clear and compelling manner, as well as listen, learn and reflect.
What We Offer
  • A flexible, diverse and inclusive workplace and attractive remuneration package including generous employer superannuation contributions.
  • Exciting and fulfilling work at the heart of government with career development and networking opportunities difficult to find elsewhere.
  • The opportunity to work with strong, smart, visionary and experienced leaders who encourage and support you to develop your interests and expertise and achieve your ambitions.
  • We work flexibly in our Canberra-based offices in spaces that have been designed to accommodate a range of working styles. This type of working supports increased communication and collaboration, and encourages agility and innovation. PM&C staff have the flexibility to make use of activity-based working principles, allowing them to choose where and how they work in an open space, while using integrated technological solutions.
If this sounds like the opportunity you are looking for, we want to hear from you!  Submit an online application through the PM&C Careers Page by Tuesday, 13 August 2019 at 11:30pm AEDT.
