As the Senior Media Advisor, you will help drive the planning and delivery of critical media activity that supports the objectives of the organisation. You will work closely with senior internal stakeholders, providing them with high-quality, strategic advice, as well as establishing strong partnerships with Victorian government agencies and other operators.
