Job Description

Rapid advances in technology and shifts in consumer behaviour are some of the drivers shaping the energy sector to be a compelling career destination. The Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) is an independent statutory body with two key roles: making and amending rules for the National Electricity Market, elements of the natural gas market and related retail markets; and providing strategic and operational advice to energy Ministers.

As the Commission Secretariat you will provide comprehensive secretariat support to the Commission, its delegates and Commission Committees regarding statutory and organisational decision-making to support compliance with legal and other requirements relating to good governance. In this role you will also support the General Counsel regarding the governance arrangements of the AEMC to assist in the delivery of the organisation’s strategic and operational objectives.

You will be actively engaging across all levels of the organisation, requiring outstanding communication and interpersonal skills and sound judgement in managing complex and sensitive matters. You will hold relevant tertiary qualifications and have experience in areas such as secretariat, company secretary, compliance, executive office, and senior administrative roles working with boards or Commissions. Experience in highly regulated sectors such as telecommunications, energy, financial services, health, and government is desirable.

You’ll be joining a high performing organisation in a fast-paced and hands on environment with a strong learning culture.
