The Public Transport Authority’s (PTA) vision is to be recognised as a leader in providing world-class public transport services and solutions. As a fast-growing economy, Western Australia’s public transport system is recognised as the best in Australia and is one of the most efficient, clean and safe networks in the world. Rail transport is vital for our continued success and growth through our many projects including METRONET to meet the public’s needs and expectations. Moving millions of people needs the skill and commitment of a talented workforce.
The TTO branch is responsible for the safe and efficient operations of the rail network across the metropolitan area. This includes the operation, security, railcar maintenance and management of the urban rail passenger system.
We are currently looking for experienced rostering officers with strong Excel and communication skills to maintain and manage the rosters for a range of security staff for the TTO Division. These include Transit Officers, Central Monitoring Room Operators and Equipment Officers.
The Level 3 Roster Clerk is a coordination role, creating rosters and managing annual leave swaps and coordinating last minute leave bookings. You will need experience in preparing timesheets and developing staff rosters for large groups as well as the ability to interpret and apply relevant industrial agreements, particularly around the varied working conditions.

This job is not for the faint hearted. You will be expected to work hard and in line with the PTA’s Core Values. We are looking for people who are fair and open as well as demonstrate your ability to work well within a team and complement our team dynamics.
The Rostering Office is a complex environment dealing a number of different Agreements and personnel.
