Employment with the ACNC

ACNC staff are employed under the Public Service Act 1999 by the Commissioner of Taxation, specifically for the purpose of assisting the ACNC Commissioner, and are therefore also bound by the employment conditions of ATO employees. The ATO ensures all employees, including those that work at the ACNC meet particular eligibility requirements, pass integrity checks, and have the right skills and capabilities. More information can be found on the ATO's information for applicants page.

Testimonials from our staff

“I felt an overwhelming sense of 'coming home' when I joined the ACNC - because I felt like I was with people who genuinely cared about me as a person and my needs - and I felt as though I had the support to back my own development and growth.

“The ACNC is the first place I have worked where the first thing I think about when describing its identity isn't the work itself, but the people who work there.”
