Job Description


The Aged Care Pricing Commissioner (ACPC) is an independent statutory office holder reporting to the Minister for Aged Care. The Commissioner leads and manages a small team assessing applications from aged care service providers who seek to charge more than the Government approved maximum price for aged care accommodation. The ACPC is also required to consider proposals for increases in Extra Service fees relating to accommodation, range and quality of food, and non-care services such as recreational and personal interest activities. Decisions made by the Commissioner in respect of proposed accommodation prices and Extra Services are reviewable under the Aged Care Act 1997.


To be a strong contender, you will need to have well-developed analytical and quantitative skills, the ability to synthesise and assess financial information, and the capacity to develop strong and enduring relationships with key stakeholders, including peak industry bodies. Your impressive achievement orientation, sound judgement and professional and personal integrity will be complemented by a collaborative approach to issues and an interpersonal style that engenders trust and respect. An understanding of the aged care sector is desirable, but not essential. Appropriate tertiary qualifications will be well regarded.
