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 preventing 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. 

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 Enforcement Branch

The Legal and Enforcement Branch consists of various functions that support the regulatory, intelligence and corporate functions of AUSTRAC. The Branch’s responsibilities include:

  • implementing the agency’s enforcement functions by taking enforcement actions against entities that engage in serious and systemic breaches of the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorism and Financing act (AML/CTF);
  • providing legal advice that manages and mitigates AUSTRAC’s legal risks in the performance of its functions;
  • work with key stakeholders in the development and 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;

Current vacancies and locations

AUSTRAC’s Enforcement is looking for a Legal Officer with skills and experience relevant to regulatory compliance and enforcement work, including civil penalty litigation. The role will involve investigating allegations of serious non-compliance with the AML/CTF Act and advising team members on a broad range of regulatory law and administrative law issues.

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.
