Job Description

Are you interested in our democratic process?


Are you looking for a chance to get in on the ground floor, learning the functions of the ACT Parliament, and contributing daily to its successful administration?

The Office of the Legislative Assembly (the Office) is an impartial statutory agency which provides procedural and administrative advice and support to the Assembly and its committees. It is headed by the Clerk of the Assembly and is governed by the Legislative Assembly (Office of the Legislative Assembly) Act 2012.

Much of the detailed work of the Assembly is done by committees, made up of MLAs from across the parties. A major element of committee work is conducting inquiries into issues important to our communities. Committees are supported by the Office’s Committee Support unit whose staff manage the day-to-day operation of committees and their inquiries by providing impartial procedural advice and practical support through activities such as drafting committee reports meeting papers and other documents, research, organising hearings, and administration.

We are seeking applications from experienced Administrative Officers who will provide a range of administrative and IT support services for Assembly committees and other Committee Support staff. This includes acting as the first point of contact for enquiries to Committee Support, and providing information to Members’ offices, departmental officers, and the public.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate a high degree of professionalism, the ability to build and maintain workplace relationships, and will need to develop a solid understanding of relevant parliamentary practice and procedure.

Note: There are permanent and temporary positions available. Temporary positions will have the possibility of an extension and/or permanency from this process. A merit pool may be established from this selection process and be used to fill future vacancies within the Committee Support team over the next 12 months.

How to Apply: Please submit a written response (maximum 1,500 words) to the criteria in the ‘What we are looking for’ section in the Position Description including specific examples, along with your curriculum vitae and the names and contact details of two referees (preferably including a current supervisor).
