Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) Job Vacancies (Update)

The Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) is responsible for conducting federal elections and referendums and maintaining the Commonwealth electoral roll. The AEC also provides a range of electoral information and education programs and activities. Further responsibilities of the AEC can be found under the role and functions of the AEC.

The AEC is managed by a three-person Australian Electoral Commission (Commission). The Commission is headed by a Chairperson, who must be an active or retired judge of the Federal Court of Australia, the Electoral Commissioner, and a non-judicial member.

Assisting the Electoral Commissioner in the national office are the Deputy Electoral Commissioner, two First Assistant Commissioners, six Assistant Commissioners, the Chief Finance Officer and the Chief Legal Officer. State managers, who hold the statutory appointment of Australian Electoral Officer (AEO) for each state and the Northern Territory during election periods, also assist the Electoral Commissioner in managing electoral activities within their State or Territory. Three Assistant Commissioners and two state managers have the added responsibility of being national program managers. The ACT is managed by the NSW state manager, except during election periods when an ACT AEO is appointed.

At the Australian Electoral Commission, you will gain valuable skills and experience through a series of placements, undertake postgraduate studies, and receive support and mentoring from senior colleagues. The program begins in February 2013 and will finish in December 2013, when you will be offered a permanent position in the AEC. The AEC offers flexible working arrangements, generous remuneration, and good learning and development programs to progress your career.
