Director, media and events
– NSW Government leadership role – band 1
– Shape and tell our story
– Work for an organisation that improves life outcomes for children and families
– Talent pool for future roles

If you’re a passionate, experienced leader, with a background in media, communications, or event delivery, and you love to shape media stories or deliver state-wide events, you’ve almost ticked all our boxes.


At FACS we have one focus, to put people first – that’s our own people, and the families and children we work with. We’re looking for someone to lead our media and events team. Someone who knows what makes a great story, and how to get it out there. Someone who can deliver exceptional events that connect with people and make a difference. Someone who thrives in a deadline-driven environment, where every day can offer a new challenge. Someone who can make things happen and achieve great results. Someone who is an inspirational, authentic leader. But above all else, someone who puts people first.

So, if you’re a master communicator and influencer, able to connect, build relationships and collaborate with anyone and everyone. And if you’re able to give strategic advice and counsel on complex issues, then you’ve ticked all of our boxes.

We hope we tick yours, so please apply! There’s a lot of difference we can make together.

Don’t worry if your background is all in media, but you don’t know the events world. Or if you’re a top events professional, with minimal media exposure. We don’t care what you’ve done before – talk to us about what you can do.

FACS offers its employees challenging and rewarding work and career opportunities with development, competitive remuneration and flexible work options. We are committed to building a diverse and inclusive culture across FACS and welcome and encourage applications from diverse community groups and ages including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, LGBTI, people with disabilities, women and other diversity groups.
