Job Description


The Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) conducts independent merits review of administrative decisions made under Commonwealth laws. We review decisions made by Australian Government ministers, departments and agencies and, in limited circumstances, decisions made by state government and non-government bodies. The AAT falls within the portfolio of the Attorney-General.

The most common types of decisions we review relate to:
• child support

• Registry Operations
• General Administration
• Finance
• Communication and Governance
• Business Support
• Information Management
• Human Resources
• Information Technology
• Legal
• Policy

We anticipate that most opportunities will be at the APS3 and APS4 levels working in registry operations in one of the capital city locations. This work involves client contact, corresponding with clients, processing review applications and assisting with hearing arrangements. Other opportunities will arise from time to time.

The temporary employment register is used by the Tribunal to source suitable candidates to fill short term or temporary vacancies. Opportunities will be offered for varying periods up to 18 months. There is no guarantee that an offer of employment will be made. Applications will remain valid until 31 July 2018.

• must be an Australian Citizen
