The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) is an independent national body responsible for the registration and regulation of approximately 60,000 registered Australian charities. The ACNC is entrusted with:

  • protecting and enhancing public trust and confidence in the not-for-profit sector through accountability, transparency and effective law administration;
  • fostering a robust, vibrant, independent and innovative not-for-profit sector; and
  • minimising unnecessary regulatory obligations on the sector, including through garnering collaboration from other regulators.

The Australian Government has announced its intention to build a strong and collaborative relationship with the charity and not-for-profit sector, and set a goal to double philanthropic giving by 2030. The ACNC has a vital role to play in achieving these goals.

The Government is seeking applications for the role of Commissioner of the ACNC. The ACNC Commissioner is an independent statutory officer with the responsibility of administering the national regulatory framework for charities. The ACNC Commissioner exercises the powers and functions of the Commission - including providing guidance to the sector - and administering the ACNC’s enforcement, monitoring, report collecting and registration powers. The Commissioner is responsible for the management and administration of the ACNC, which comprises of more than 100 members of staff.

The successful applicant will be committed to maintaining a regulatory environment that enhances the capability and confidence of Australian charities to pursue their purpose; demonstrate leadership; be able to manage complex operations; work with others to meet objectives; have a high level of judgment; and, demonstrate a high standard of professional and personal integrity as well as capacity to promote these qualities in an organisation (consistent with the APS Integrated Leadership System).

Applicants should have experience and understanding of the not-for-profit sector including the role of the ACNC and an outstanding record of achievement in a relevant field combined with knowledge of, or experience in, law, taxation, accounting, management and/or government.
