The Opportunity

Transgrid is responsible for building a clean energy grid from renewable generators as energy storage becomes critical. Consequently, Transgrid is experiencing unprecedented times in delivering major transmission infrastructure projects to improve electricity supply reliability as ageing coal-fired generators are retired.

The Wagga Wagga Riverina region intersects three of Transgrid’s key major projects including HumeLink, Project Energy Connect (PEC) and Victoria New South Wales Interconnect – West (VNI-West). Accordingly, this important region requires strong local community and stakeholder engagement to successfully deliver these interconnected projects.

To support the delivery of these projects, Transgrid is creating a Wagga Wagga engagement discovery centre where community members can come together to discuss the projects, share knowledge, and better understand the projects and communicate their points of view.

A small engagement team will manage the Wagga Wagga Engagement Hub and as such the Community Engagement Coordinator will be responsible for:

  • Coordinating the day to day operations of the Wagga Wagga Engagement Hub (the Hub), a Transgrid discovery centre that educates the public as to Transgrid’s operations, new infrastructure projects and the critical works being undertaken to transition NSW to a renewable energy future;
  • Engaging with members of the public and groups that visit the Wagga Wagga Engagement Hub;
  • Support the Wagga Wagga Community and Stakeholders Engagement Lead
  • Support the broader Transgrid objectives and purposes for the Hub

The position provides support to Transgrid’s ongoing community and stakeholder engagement activities in Wagga Wagga to support operations and the delivery of new infrastructure projects.
