About us

COVID-19 Quarantine Victoria (CQV) is responsible for Victoria's COVID-19 Accommodation response, including:

  • Mandatory quarantine for returned overseas travellers
  • Emergency Accommodation for people that cannot safely isolate/quarantine in their accommodation.

The Victorian Chief Health Officer has mandated that all returning overseas travellers arriving in Victoria must go into mandatory quarantine for 14 days from the day of their arrival to help prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

In addition, CQV is responsible for the operation of Victoria's Emergency Accommodation program for community members and their close contacts who have tested positive for COVID-19 and where an assessment has concluded that there are no other suitable alternative accommodation options for self-isolation.

Infection control and prevention is the primary objective of the mandatory quarantine and emergency accommodation programs.

About the role

The Senior Data Analyst will sit within a small team of data analysts to drive internal and external data analysis and reporting requirements for CQV. The incumbent will also play an important role in developing strategic and operational insights across the business.

You may be required to work flexible hours, including weekends and public holidays, and attend to urgent work as required. Appropriate remuneration will be applied for the above in accordance with the Victorian Public Service Enterprise Agreement 2020.

This role also includes:

  • Develop and deliver strategic, business, and operational reports across CQV that provide senior stakeholders with relevant, timely and accurate information to inform decision making.
  • Contribute to the maintenance of data quality and integrity across a range of CQV systems by identifying and communicating issues and errors.
