The Office of Bushfire Risk Management (OBRM) is looking for someone who enjoys learning; working collaboratively with people from diverse backgrounds on complex issues and has a strong interest in bushfire and the management of associated risk. OBRM was established in 2012 following the Margaret River bushfire and has been instrumental in establishing collaborative partnerships to manage risk associated with planned burning activities. Western Australia is now a leader in the management of bushfire related risk.

Western Australia is large, varied in its vegetation and climate and has complex challenges in the management of bushfire related risks in such a diverse landscape. This makes for a fascinating place to learn, to be amongst and to live in.


The Office is looking for a manager to guide the enhancement and expansion of OBRM’s cornerstone program, an Assurance Program for planned burning by government and non-government organisations in Western Australia.

While the position is based in Perth, you will be required to travel to some beautiful areas of the state including the savannahs of the Kimberley Region, tall forests in the South West Region and coastal heath of the Great Southern Region.


Working with OBRM also provides flexible working arrangements, diversity, excellent opportunities for development and building new and strengthening existing relationships. The pay isn’t bad either (up to $126K per year plus 9.5% super). Some costs to support a successful applicant’s migration to WA is also available.


If this sounds like a job for you please contact Tim McNaught, Director Office of Bushfire Risk Management on 0427 543 207 for further background on the role and a copy of the Job Description and application details.
