  • Victoria's independent anti-corruption Commission

Victoria's independent anti-corruption commission, IBAC, now in its seventh year of operation, has built and demonstrated a strong capacity to expose and prevent public sector corruption and police misconduct.

The position of Deputy Commissioner is a statutory Governor-in-Council appointment, made upon the recommendation of the Special Minister of State. The appointment is expected to commence later this year, for a period of up to 5 years. The role of this Deputy Commissioner position is to assist the Commissioner in fulfilling IBAC's legislated purpose and functions, with principal responsibilities being to:

  • undertake specific delegated duties and functions under the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission Act 2011, especially as they relate to the exercise of IBAC's significant statutory powers;
  • contribute to operational, intelligence and research, and prevention and education activity and products, as they relate to issues, themes and trends regarding public sector corrupt conduct or police misconduct;
  • advise on the assessment of complaints and notifications made to IBAC, and the reviews of internal investigations of such conduct by other agencies;
  • engage with a range of external stakeholders, including across the public sector, in advocating IBAC's work;
  • be part of a senior executive team, acting on the instructions of the Commissioner and advice of the Chief Executive Officer and Directors;
  • help drive organisational performance and a strong IBAC values-based culture.

Candidates for the role should have a legal, law enforcement, public sector body, academic or community or non-government organisation background. They should demonstrate a substantial record in relevant or associated public policy, public sector management, statutory enforcement and/or regulatory compliance. They should also have extensive experience in setting, dealing with or responding to integrity issues and challenges in a public sector context, either in Victoria or a similar jurisdiction. Relevant higher tertiary qualifications in the law, public administration or other related field will be considered highly desirable.
