Sessional member appointments
The Attorney-General seeks expressions of interest from suitably qualified persons interested in appointment as sessional members of QCAT.
QCAT recognises the diversity of our community. To ensure our membership reflects the community, we encourage applicants from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds to apply.
QCAT ordinary members may be appointed on a sessional basis for a period of three to five years by the Governor in Council on the recommendation of the Attorney-General. Sessional members undertake work as and when required in the tribunal.
Expressions of interest are sought from those demonstrating a high level of integrity, sound judgment, legal or professional skills, interpersonal skills, the ability to conduct hearings and a capacity to make fair decisions quickly. Excellent communication skills are essential, and skills in mediation are also valuable.
Expressions of interest are sought from participants across the private, government and community sectors who are either legal practitioners or have special knowledge or experience in relation to functions which are exercised by QCAT.
