Even though the job over all is totally enjoyable i find that the shift work hours take away any positive benefits

Same location
Technical Officer (Former Employee) - Kununurra, WA
Set routine with decision making and organisation required. Other duties arising regularly. The importance of good managers. How some processes of the organisation worked. The manager in this job was not fully engaged. Co workers were excellent. The hardest part of the job was a lack of variety of duties. Also very little to extend ones capabilities. Learning curve was low. The best part of the job was the autonomy and the driving and travel to remote areas. I also enjoyed the interaction with other agencies.
Pros
Excellent package and job security
Cons
mostly boring
