Telstra is one of the iconic Australians. Today we are a company that looks to the world of tomorrow. We're on the forefront of the communications revolution. It's an exciting place to be.

You will manage & supervise the GEM Systems Support and Development team. Working with the GEM business owners to prioritise and schedule the upcoming programme of development work you will take overall accountability for the GEM system being developed to functionality and quality requirements of the business owners.
Key to your success will be your ability to represent essential operational IT concepts to a business audience in a conceptually accessible manner and using natural language, as well as listening to and understanding the businesses requirements and then aligning the various elements of the GEM Operations area to ensure optimal business outcomes. Exceptional stakeholder & employee management skills will be required in this organisationally dynamic environment.
