The Department of Industry, Tourism and Trade (DITT) works in partnership with business and industry to develop and broaden the Northern Territory's economic base through investment attraction, business and workforce growth.

Positioned within the Mining and Energy Division of DITT, the Northern Territory Geological Survey (NTGS) is the custodian of knowledge and data on the Territory's geology and resources, and undertakes activities to support and grow the mineral and petroleum exploration industry.

As the Senior Spatial Systems Analyst, your primary objective is to provide high-level, specialist advice, technical expertise and project management services relating to spatial systems development and management.

To be successful, you are required to have substantial experience as a systems analyst in developing, integrating and managing spatial applications and business intelligence systems, within a scientific environment. Proven coding experience with contemporary IT programming languages and advanced SQL in both network and web environments. Tertiary qualifications in IT, spatial science or geoscience will be well received.

This is a great time to consider moving to the Territory. Reward yourself with an enviable lifestyle and a work-life balance that allows you time to explore stunning landscapes and tourist attractions, enjoy colourful tropical sunsets and spectacular lightening displays, and experience the ancient culture of Australia's First Nations People. You will find Darwin's rich multicultural society and community spirit makes it a great place to live, work and play. Support with relocation expenses may be available to successful applicants
