  • Obtaining necessary information and advice to effectively resolve AAT matters.
  • Applying alternate dispute resolution methods and advocacy skills to resolve applications.
  • Attending Case Conferences, Conciliations and Hearings conducted by the AAT.
  • Preparing documents detailing resolution options and outcomes at meetings.
  • Assessing and responding to priorities and risks, including risk to the participant, Scheme sustainability and our client.
  • Preparing and maintaining electronic record keeping, including evidence supporting decision-making processes and justifying conclusions reached during the case management process.
The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate the following:
  • Strong judgement and problem-solving skills.
  • Strong customer service and communication skills along with excellent attention to detail.
  • Ability to manage competing priorities while maintaining high work standards and accuracy.
