Join us and make a difference JLB

job edit

Come join us as we transform the way we work to “make privacy easy”. That’s our Privacy Commissioner’s mantra and our mandate and we’re currently recruiting for four positions (the deadline is 20 April).

  • Communications Adviser
  • Policy Adviser
  • Investigating Officer (with an emphasis on alternative dispute resolution)
  • Enquiries Officer (part time)

What’s in it for you?

You’d be working at the forefront of one of the most topical issues of our times. Privacy affects everyone – from the individual to the businesses, organisations and government agencies that handle personal information. You’d know this from the news coverage about privacy issues, from photos of rude cakes on Facebook to drones that surveil to personal information shared or marketed. Privacy is a hot topic and you’d be working right at the core of it.

You’d be working with a great group of people. We’re a small and friendly team of highly committed and skilled professionals. Team is the keyword here. We’re big on innovating, on trying new ways of working, and striving for excellence in what we do. But above all, we work collegially and supportively of one another. You’ll be able to learn from others and share your own skills and knowledge.

You’ll also have the opportunity to work in areas that go beyond your own role. That’s because we take a cross-functional approach to the way we work. We pull people together from across the office to work on ad hoc or special projects. It’s another way you’ll be able to extend your professional development and develop your skills and knowledge.

If you are keen to learn and acquire new skills, you’ll have an opportunity to do so here.

For the Investigating Officer role, we are particularly keen to attract someone with alternative dispute resolution skills and experience. This is the approach we now take in resolving complaints about alleged breaches of privacy. If you’ve got it, help lead our change.

If you have a passion for privacy issues, if you like working in a fast changing environment, if you have the enthusiasm, the smarts and skills to do the job, come join us and make a difference. There's more information here.
