JOB DESCRIPTION

About AUSTRAC and what we do

Criminals and terrorists are targeting the financial sector, using it to hide and move their illicit wealth, funnel money to illegal business operations and conflicts overseas, or supporting crimes such as drug trafficking, child sex exploitation and terrorist attacks.


These are not white collar crimes. They impact every Australian, from increasing the cost of living right through to our loved ones being harmed.


At AUSTRAC, it’s our job to protect the community by disrupting this activity and prevent it from occurring in the first place.


AUSTRAC is the Australian Government’s financial intelligence unit and anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing regulator. With government and industry partners, we use financial intelligence and regulation to:

  • Prevent criminal abuse of the financial sector;
  • help business, government and law enforcement partners detect, deter and disrupt money laundering, terrorism financing and other serious crimes;
  • build and maintain trust and integrity in Australia’s financial system. Every day our people use their intellect, skills, initiative and the latest technologies to protect our country, economy and community.

Our purpose is to build resilience in the financial system and use financial intelligence and regulation to disrupt money laundering, terrorism financing and other serious crime.

The Legal and Policy Branch


The Legal and Policy Branch of AUSTRAC consists of various functions that support the functions of the rest of the agency. Working across AUSTRAC’s regulatory, intelligence and corporate functions, the Legal and Policy Branch:

  • implement the agency’s enforcement functions by taking enforcement actions against entities that engage in serious and systemic breaches of the AML/CTF Act;
  • provide legal advice that manage and mitigate AUSTRAC’s legal risks in the performance of its functions;
  • work with the Department of Home Affairs and other stakeholders to develop policy reform proposals that support improvement in AML/CTF legislative framework, including drafting of the AML/CTF Rules;
  • manage AUSTRAC’s MOUs with domestic and international partners and requests for exemption from certain obligations under the AML/CTF Act;
  • manage AUSTRAC’s international engagement with the Financial Action Taskforce (FATF) and the Asia Pacific Group (APG).

About the Vacancy

AUSTRAC’s Enforcement team investigates serious non-compliance with the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006 and takes formal enforcement action in response to identified breaches.

The Director, Enforcement under broad direction of the National Manager Legal and Policy is responsible for:

  • Leading the development and implementation of key strategies, policies and procedures, and providing advice to senior management, to enable the effective enforcement of compliance with the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006 and the Financial Transaction Reports Act 1988.
  • Providing high level leadership, including the effective management of the Enforcement team to deliver agreed outcomes, including the formation of high performing, agile, collaborative and innovative teams with the appropriate capabilities and skill sets.
  • Exercising complex professional judgement in Enforcement matters.
  • Contributing to the achievement of wider agency business and strategic goals.
  • representing AUSTRAC in external forums and liaising with external and internal stakeholders in building/maintaining networks.
  • Exercising approved delegations in accordance with legal and other requirements.
  • Modelling the professional work standards and behaviours detailed in the APS Values, Employment Principles and Code of Conduct.
  • Legal qualifications are valued but not required.

With supportive benefits and culture, we offer a challenging and rewarding career where you can make a real impact. A career at AUSTRAC will open the door to a vast range of future opportunities domestically and internationally.
