The Personal Injury Commission was established on 1 March 2021. The Commission is a single, independent tribunal for injured people claiming against the compulsory third party and workers compensation insurance schemes. The Commission replaced the former Workers Compensation Commission and SIRA’s Dispute Resolution Services that managed workers compensation and motor vehicle disputes.
Applications are sought from suitably qualified and experienced persons for appointment to the positions of Senior Member (fulltime) and General Members (full-time and sessional) in the Workers Compensation Division. Full-time General Members and Senior Members are based in Sydney. Sessional General Members may be based in Sydney or regional locations. Some travel may be required.
Full-time Senior Members and General Members receive an attractive salary. Sessional General Members are remunerated under a fee schedule. Appointments may be made for terms up to five years, with eligibility for reappointment. Appointees as a Senior Member or General Member will be qualified legal practitioners of at least 5 years’ standing or, in the opinion of the Minister, possess special knowledge, skill or expertise. Ideally applicants for the appointments will have sound knowledge of workers compensation law and practice, coupled with demonstrated alternative dispute resolution and facilitation skills and experience.

If you require access to information via a different process or have access requirements that require reasonable adjustment in the application/assessment process, please contact the nominated enquiries officer to discuss.
Expressions of interest (EOIs) are now open for consideration of appointments to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT).
The AAT conducts independent merits review of administrative decisions made under Commonwealth laws. They review decisions made by Australian Government ministers, departments and agencies and, in limited circumstances, decisions made by state government and non-government bodies. They also review decisions made under Norfolk Island laws.
EOIs for appointment as a Senior Member in a Deputy Division Head role close at 11:59 pm (AEST) on Sunday, 16 May 2021. EOIs for appointment as Deputy President, Senior Member or Member will be accepted on an ongoing basis over a 12-month period or until a new call is advertised.
If you expressed interest in 2019, you will need to submit a new EOI if you wish to be considered again.
