JOB DESCRIPTION

This vacancy is advertised as an ‘identified position’ which means candidates are required to have an understanding of the issues affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and proven culturally appropriate engagement and communication skills. Additional selection criteria are added to cover this.


The Native Title Registrar (Registrar) has specific functions and responsibilities to perform under the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) (Native Title Act). The Registrar maintains three National Native Title Tribunal (NNTT) Registers, namely the Register of Native Title Claims, National Native Title Register and the Register of Indigenous Land Use Agreements, and considers native title claimant applications (claims) and indigenous land use agreements (ILUAs) for registration.

Registration Delegates are administrative decisions makers that make decisions in relation to the registration of claims and Indigenous Land Use Agreements (ILUAs), and decisions in relation to applications requesting information under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cth) (FOI Act). Registration Delegates also ensure the accuracy of the NNTT Registers, applications are notified under the Native Title Act, and undertake other projects and activities as required.


Duties

Registration Delegates are delegated the Registrar’s powers to make decisions in relation to the registration of claims and ILUAs. All decisions are done on the papers and require a thorough analysis of factual documentation and submissions, against criteria set out in the Native Title Act and relevant regulations. Registration Delegates work closely with employees in all NNTT registries but are responsible for the decision and reasoning in each matter. As well as deciding whether applications meet the registration requirements, Registration Delegates provide assistance to parties by providing initial assessments of the ability for draft claims and ILUAs to be registered. 

As administrative decision-makers, Registration Delegates also make decisions in relation to applications requesting information under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cth) (FOI Act). 

Registration Delegates have other responsibilities, including ensuring the accuracy of entries on the NNTT Registers following registration decisions or approved determinations and decisions by the Federal Court or other approved body, preparing and reviewing notification of applications made under the Native Title Act, and contributing to the development of information products and training programs. The delegate will also undertake any other task or project required by the Applications & Registration Manager.

Registration Delegates report to the Applications & Registration Manager and will support the Applications & Registration Manager to provide assistance to the President, members of the Tribunal and the Registrar in the discharge of their functions and powers under the Native Title Act.
