Compliance and Risk Manager

Based in Perth (Fremantle), Western Australia, with some motor travel throughout South-West WA

Carbon Sync is a Western Australian soil carbon project developer. At Carbon Sync, we develop long-term partnerships with farmers and support them to identify and apply the management practices that will improve the profitability of their enterprise and the resilience of their farm ecosystem.

Carbon Sync is seeking a process and data-driven Compliance and Risk Manager (CRM) to coordinate our regulatory responsibilities in Western Australia as we grow our client base of WA farmers. 

The CRM will be responsible for designing and operating workflow associated with initial registration of soil carbon projects as well as the ongoing project management and reporting of each project. The CRM will manage third-party technology, auditing and field-based contract service providers. The CRM will need to have experience with, and confidence in, assessing and operating data and technology platforms. 

The successful candidate will have demonstrated high levels of attention to detail and patience with bureaucratic processes and procedures inherent in a Government designed and regulated scheme and an understanding of regulatory and compliance requirements in a similar or related workplace setting.

Carbon Sync is an agricultural education and extension start-up business specialising in soil carbon farming project development. We focus on integrated approaches to decarbonise agriculture, mitigate climate change and enhance climate resiliency. Along with soil carbon farming with the potential to generate carbon credits, we seek to create co-benefits of managing healthy, high-functioning soils and climate-smart systems.

We are committed to creating an inclusive environment where diverse voices are activated in all aspects of our efforts.
