8 things you need to succeed at OTR:

Judgement - Exercise sound judgement between choices and display an innate ability to assess risk as well as to understand which ideas have better prospects of success.

Communication - Communication is about a commitment to communicate. It is actively participating and being deliberate about making a choice to keep others informed.

Performance - Performance is over-delivery. It is quality work. It is doing what you say you are going to do and having a track record of actually delivering as a habit (not occasionally).

Curiosity - Curiosity is a natural instinct. You walk past a sign that interests you - do you keep walking, or do you stop, pause, consider and think about it? It is impossible to be bored if you are curious.

Innovation - Innovation is not just about new products; it is about novel or unorthodox solutions to problems that you face. It is about iterating improvements to everything we do.  You have an opportunity to simplify as well as create in this business. A bias towards these is crucial.

Courage - Indecision and procrastination are our enemy. Having courage is making a decision and defending it because you have thought it through.  A bias to action is our preference.

Empathy - Every business relies on the discretionary effort of its team if it seeks greatness. Having empathy for our front-line staff and your colleagues is the first step to enlisting people’s hearts and not just their time. Fundamentally, you must have in your mind that we all have an obligation to make things easier for one another and for our customers, and never ask of them things that are unreasonable.

Honesty - Honesty is the enabler of trust – we have zero tolerance for dishonesty.

Selflessness - Selflessness is unashamedly putting the organisations interests ahead of your own. It is simply doing the right thing by your team and the organisation and putting those interests first, every time.  We are a team and this is no place for lone wolves.

The successful candidate will possess:

  • A tertiary qualification in Environmental Sustainability or Electrical Engineering or similar
  • A sound knowledge of the principles and practices of energy use
  • An excellent understanding of energy procurement 
  • Ideally 5+ years post graduate industry related experience
  • A proven ability to resolve issues and problem solve
  • Strong professional knowledge of procurement practices and principles
  • The ability to generate effective energy use reports to the Leadership Team
  • Excellent written communication skills – if you can’t write a considered quality recommendation, you wont get the autonomy.
