Issue Date: April 2019

Work is performed under minimum supervision with general guidance on progress and outcomes of work. It involves discretion and judgement in managing personal work priorities and professional development.

A range of opportunities may be used to develop the workplace and to support the development of work systems and innovative strategies to deal with contingencies and to encourage the achievement of the organisations goals and key performance objectives.

Work generally involves responsibility for resource coordination and allocation and provides leadership of others individually or in teams.

This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to manage personal work priorities and own professional development, including managing own qualities, goals, plans and performance; setting and meeting own work priorities; and developing and maintaining own professional competence.
