You will be required to:
- Contribute to complex investigations into suspected misconduct
- Provide written and oral briefings to Senior Executives and Commissioners
- Interview and build relationships with a range of witnesses
- Provide advice regarding evidence and the use of ASICs statutory powers
- Provide recommendations for the management of investigations and identify issues requiring further assessment

- Assist in the conduct of civil litigation and criminal prosecutions in the Supreme and Federal Courts, including briefing and instructing counsel and where appropriate recovering costs of litigations
- Compile briefs for the Commonwealth Department of Public Prosecution (CDPP) and assist them to prepare and conduct criminal prosecutions
- Compile administrative briefs to ASIC delegates and representing ASIC at delegates hearings

You will demonstrate an ability to prioritise work and be an articulate communicator with exceptional written skills. You will also be adept in analysing and working with large volumes of digital information.
