  • Effectively communicating with stakeholders, including those appearing before the tribunal;
  • Arranging and attending all RSL NSW Tribunal meetings and hearings;
  • Creating and circulating agendas and minutes of tribunal meetings;
  • Responding to correspondence within prescribed timeframes; and
  • Issuing notices of hearings and determinations accordance with the RSL NSW Constitution.

Essential attributes of the RSL NSW Tribunal Registrar include, but are not limited to:

  • A strong knowledge and understanding of the constitution and standard operating procedures, particularly around disciplinary procedures;
  • Proficiency with the Microsoft Office software suite; and
  • The ability to work independently and in conjunction with the RSL NSW Tribunal Chair.
