About appointments to statutory bodies

The Department collects nominations, undertakes a short-listing of candidates and recommends suitable candidate(s) to the relevant Minister who will select their preferred appointee(s). Final decisions are approved by Cabinet.

If you are interested in serving on a statutory body, the Department recommends that you register with one of the following nominating agencies: 

Registering with a nominating agency does not mean your name will be put forward automatically to Ministers, as agencies select suitable candidates to forward for consideration based on the appointment criteria.

Current calls for nominations for appointment to a statutory body can be found at: Recent Announcements and Appointments (below)
