Position Details

As a specialised VOCAT Registrar you will have responsibility for case managing VOCAT applications in numerous court locations.  You will be expected to travel to the metropolitan courts most in need of assistance.  The two positions will be roughly divided into two regions; a western and northern metropolitan Registrar and an eastern and southern metropolitan Registrar.  While the positions will report to the Principal Registrar at Melbourne the Registrars will spend little time at the Melbourne Registry. 

The VOCAT Registrars will be expected to action incoming correspondence, draft outgoing correspondence, make interim awards, analyse information on the file, write requests for advice, update data in Courtlink, pay out authorised expenses and other duties as required.

The VOCAT Registrar must have the capacity to interpret and apply the legislation and practice directions relevant to the Tribunal.
