Tourism Support Officer/s
Level 4/5 – casual
Casual Pay Rate: $32.46 – $36.76 p/h (inclusive of casual loading)

The Shire of Merredin is seeking candidates with strong customer service experience and an interest in tourism and visitor servicing, to support our Visitor Centre team.

Ideally, candidates for the Tourism Support Officer role will have experience in the delivery of customer services in a similar environment, have knowledge of the local area and have a desire to share this with visitors to the region.

This role requires the ability to work under pressure at times, particularly through the wildflower season, and to demonstrate they can work in a supportive team environment – a degree of flexibility on working days and hours is a must.

To ensure the successful candidate is able to take up their roles effectively, there will be 3 weeks full-time training. Casual work is available through the peak wildflower season, July-September 2023 and during this time, casuals will be required to support a 7-day rotational roster. Note: it is expected that there will be some ongoing employment for casual staff after October 2023, however this will be on an ad hoc basis.

If you are interested in this position, but are concerned about meeting all the requirements of the position description, please contact Robyn McCarthy on (08) 9041 1666 for a confidential discussion.  We are keen to talk to people that are open to learning and we offer a supportive workplace where you can further develop your skills.

If you wish to apply for both the Tourism Officer and Tourism Support Officer positions, please state this in your application and forward your resume and covering letter outlining your ability to meet the selection criteria (no more than 2 pages) to [email protected] by 4:00pm Friday, 14 July 2023. The Shire will be assessing applications as we receive them and may undertake interviews prior to the closing date.

If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us on (08) 9041 1666.
