Position vacant: SIFA seeks policy and research advisor


The Shooting Industry Foundation Australia (SIFA) has a job vacancy for a senior policy and research advisor, a role at the heart of the local’s industry’s political and regulatory responses.

The full-time job is central to helping SIFA in what it considers its tasks in “advocacy, research, education, and safety promotion to inform the public, regulators, and politicians about the vital role our industry plays in Australia”.

The advisor will be expected to have or develop an understanding “of all relevant legislation, regulation and policy that affects the Australian shooting industry” and its commercial interests, and be able to dig into these matters to find areas of concern.

Preparing “reasoned and articulate” responses is also expected.

It involves reporting directly to SIFA’s CEO, as well as providing advice to him and the board.

The advisor will be dealing with politicians, bureaucrats, law enforcement agencies and others. 

The role will involve local, interstate and overseas travel.

SIFA states it would prefer a Canberra-based person but has left the door open for flexible or remote working arrangements, which would likely come down to one of the kay criteria: the ability to work autonomously and manage work time. 

To find more about the role, including how to apply, visit the SIFA Job Centre website (where you will find other job vacancies in the shooting industry).
