Are you ready for a unique opportunity to have a significant impact on the lives of First Nations peoples? We are seeking an agile Project Development Manager to join our Western Divisional Office at the Indigenous Land and Sea Corporation (ILSC) on a full-time 3 year contract.
The ILSC is a corporate Commonwealth entity established under the ATSI Act and subject to the PGPA Act. The ILSC assists Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to realise economic, social, cultural and environmental benefits that the ownership and management of land, water and water related rights can bring. The ILSC provides this assistance through the acquisition and management of rights and interests in land, salt water and fresh water country.
The ILSC plans to divest a range of complex properties to appropriate Indigenous Corporations. To do so, it is working with potential owners and tenants to develop sustainable models so that these properties can be divested. These properties include Clontarf Campus, an important educational, training and cultural property in metropolitan Perth.
About the Role
Under the direction of the Divisional Manager, this role will develop and implement a divestment strategy that will see Clontarf Campus divested to an appropriate Indigenous Organisation on the basis that the property is financially independent and will be managed for the benefit of Indigenous people into the future.

- Business and enterprise development

- Engagement with Government at all levels and other stakeholders
- Development of funding mechanisms including a landholding fund for the future landholder to access and ensure future landholding and property needs are met.
At the ILSC we offer:
- More than just a job. We offer you the opportunity to make a real, positive difference to the lives of First Nations peoples. When we return land and water Country to Indigenous ownership, or fund a new Indigenous enterprise or management project, we strengthen and deepen Indigenous connection to Country and advance progress towards self-determination.
- The prospect to fast-track your career by working on high impact projects across Australia.
- Generous leave entitlements and work conditions, including:
- 15.4% superannuation on top of your salary
