Our employment conditions are outlined in the Enterprise Agreement.

In October 2020, staff voted in favor of a section 24 determination rather than EA negotiations.  As a result, with the endorsement of staff, the Chief Executive Officer, with the approval of the APS Commissioner, made a section 24(1) determination under the Public Service Act 1999 (Act). 

The NCA encourages workplace diversity and welcomes applications from Indigenous Australians, people of non-English speaking background, and people with a disability. If you have individual requirements in order to participate in an interview, please indicate this in your application or contact the Human Resource on (02) 6272 2950.

To be eligible to work with the NCA you must:

  • be an Australian citizen
  • be willing to undergo a medical examination if applicable
