What we're looking for

Graduates from all disciplines.

Some of the important work we do, as Australia's media and communications regulator, includes:

  • setting and managing rules about communications and media services and markets
  • licencing people, organisations and products to operate in Australia
  • looking into complaints and problems, and taking action when rules aren't being followed
  • planning and managing the airwaves, and making space for new services, like 5G

We also have supporting corporate functions such as legal, HR, ICT, finance and procurement.  

Application process

You’ll be required to provide information to verify your eligibility, as well as an 800 word statement outlining your skills, knowledge and experience against the selection criteria. You will also be asked to upload your resume and academic transcript.

The assessment process will include online assessments and attendance at an assessment centre for half a day in Canberra, Sydney or Melbourne in July (the ACMA will arrange return travel to assessment centres).

Offers will be made to successful candidates in August/September 2019. All unsuccessful candidates will be notified and will be able to receive feedback if requested.
