Job Description

Duties


Expressions of interest are invited from qualified individuals to be considered for appointment as a member of the AAT. This EOI process will create a register of candidates from which recommendations for appointment may be drawn over a period of up to 12 months.

Current members who wish to be considered for promotion should also submit an EOI for roles of interest to them.

About the role

Members of the AAT are independent statutory appointees who hear and decide applications for review of decisions. In doing so, they are required to interpret and apply relevant legislation to factual scenarios, conduct hearings and other processes in a procedurally fair manner, and make well-reasoned and timely decisions based on relevant criteria and evidence. Suitably qualified members may also conduct alternative dispute resolution processes.
