Our eight capital city offices represent National Scheme interests with key community, professional, employer and government stakeholders within each State and Territory. Our operations are governed by the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law Act as in force in each state and territory

As State Manager, you will be responsible for the AHPRA office in your capital city location of Sydney, Adelaide or Melbourne. Your primary focus will be the delivery of high quality   regulatory services consistent with national policy, procedures and performance requirements.  You will do this by working in partnership with key internal and external stakeholders within your State, to ensure that AHPRA is responsive to diverse local needs and conditions. You will also play an integral role in the significant and ongoing organisational change program by contributing to the development of regulatory policies, programs and service delivery requirements and positively engaging with staff to lead them through the change, while building a high performance culture that fosters staff learning and wellbeing.
