Selected writers and reviewers will work under the direction of a project manager who will have responsibility for coordinating and managing each of the tasks and ensuring that the project is completed to an acceptable standard, on time and within budget. For some projects there may be more than one person involved and the writers/reviewers will need to work collaboratively.
In the majority of cases, selected writers/reviewers will be required to work at the BOSTES offices at 117 Clarence Street, Sydney.
