Chief Policy Advisor
South Australian Department of Housing
14 Edifice St
Woodbrush SA 5000
Dear Ms Holder
Re: Government Policy Advisor position
I am writing to apply for the position of Government Policy Advisor at the Department of Housing as advertised recently on SEEK.com.au.
In my current role, I serve as a policy advisor to the Southport Department of Housing, overseeing housing programs and development in the Southport area. My duties include, but are not limited to, advising on the development of housing policy strategies, liaising with community services and other agencies on key policy issues, conducting extensive research on housing strategies, writing reports and briefs for analysts and local/state government, and preparing government submissions.
One of my notable achievements at Southport has been to play a key role in devising the Combined Homelessness Task Force. This has been a very successful program, resulting in a 10% decrease in rough sleeping since 2010.
Prior to this, I worked as a policy officer at the South Australian Housing Federation, conducting research and developing a range of recommendations to help communities suffering from economic and social disadvantage and poor service provision.
I am fully qualified, with a Bachelor of Arts (Community Development) and a Master of Politics and Policy. I possess excellent report writing and research skills, and am thoroughly versed in all legislation relevant to this role.
I am a hard-working and enthusiastic person, with a solid understanding of housing issues and affected communities, a strategic mind and excellent interpersonal and negotiation skills. Throughout my career, I have been driven by a dual sense of social justice and the need to facilitate change through long-term policy vision.
My resume is attached and I look forward to being able to discuss the position with you further.
