Senior Investigations and Compliance Officer
Duties The ACMA's Content, Consumer and Citizen Division plays a key role in fostering an innovative communications and media environment - managing matters relating to content regulation (Australian, children's and regional local content), media ownership and control, community broadcasting, captioning, and consumer safeguards (online gambling, telecommunications, anti-spam, e-security and the Do Not Call Register). The Content Safeguards Branch within the Division focuses on ensuring consumer safeguards reflect community standards and expectations in an evolving content delivery market. The Branch manages compliance activities, complaints and queries about content and investigates alleged breaches of relevant codes of practice, standards, and legislation.

These roles play a key part in contributing to television, radio and online content regulation, compliance activities and emerging policy areas in the communications and media environment.
