Western Power

It’s an exciting time to be joining Western Power. The way we use power is changing. The grid is evolving. And it’s our people who are helping connect everyone to a brighter energy future. Now more than ever, we need talented and passionate people to join us and help shape the future of energy in WA. Explore the fantastic opportunity below.

About this role

We have an exciting opportunity for a Technical Compliance Officer to join our team at our Jandakot Depot on Prinsep Road, with a move to our brand new, state of the art, South Metro Depot (Forrestdale) facility in the near future. Whilst we are ideally seeking a full-time person (75 hour fortnight), we are open to considering applications from candidates wishing to work flexibly; including part time (minimum of 0.8 FTE) or working from home up to 2 days per week.

If you are you looking for an opportunity to work collaboratively across both internal and external stakeholders to ensure high level customer service provision in relation to planned power outages, and if you enjoy ensuring that information is accurate, compliant and dependable, then this position may suit you.

As the ‘gatekeeper’ of information relating to planned interruption of power supply, this role has oversight of the collection, dissemination and auditing surrounding the process and the compliance with the process. Supported by a team of enablement officers, you will provide technical support and guidance, with the role playing a key part of preventing breaches of the Code of Conduct for the Supply of Electricity to small-use customers. This is particularly critical when it comes to Life Support Equipment customers, so you would be influencing an important impact on our end-users.

This role would be great for someone looking to transition ‘off the tools’, either for future career growth opportunities or for a plan towards retirement.

About you

We are seeking someone with experience and attributes that include:

  • Strong demonstrated experience in Network operations and construction works, ideally within an electricity distribution or other public utility

  • IT literacy; MS Office, ENMAC, SPIDAWEB, GeoView
  • Working knowledge of the techniques and systems associated with distribution switching operations and procedures
  • A good understanding of risk and compliance management
