As the Senior Fraud Investigator, you will support the Scheme Integrity Branch in assisting the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA or the Agency) and partners in delivering a high performing, high integrity, trusted National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS or the Scheme).

Client Details

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is an independent statutory agency. Its role is to implement the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), which will support a better life for hundreds of thousands of Australians with a significant and permanent disability and their families and carers.


This position makes a critical contribution to safeguarding public confidence in the NDIS. You will be a valued member of a highly responsive and contemporary Scheme Integrity Branch, conducting internal and external fraud investigations. The Branch supports the Agency and its partners in preventing, detecting and responding to threats in delivering the NDIS.

This role requires the ability to contribute and lead in different investigation types, depending on Branch pressures. You will undertake investigations of potential fraud, unauthorised access, misconduct and other criminal offences committed against the Agency/Scheme. In doing so, you will use initiative and discretion in the interpretation of policy and the application of practices and procedures. Decision-making is substantially dependent on sound judgement, skills and knowledge.

Senior Investigators work with a high level of autonomy and ensure the work of the team is of high standards. They will also at times be required to assist with project work.

Senior Investigators are expected to display positively and team focus, playing a key role in the support and development of less experienced staff. They manage their own work in the context of competing priorities, including contributing to business planning, changes in workplace practices and business improvement strategies. They are required to liaise with stakeholders and represent the branch with credibility and professionalism.


As a Senior Fraud Investigator, key duties include:

  • Analyse and process information to produce accurate and informative reports
  • Conduct formal and informal discussions with NDIA staff and partners, NDIS participants, providers and third parties
  • Undertake and manage complex and sensitive investigations in accordance with NDIA processes and the Australian Government Investigation Standards, 2011
  • Gather evidence from a range of sources and prepare high quality briefs of evidence
  • Prepare cases for referral to relevant parties such as the Australian Federal Police and Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions
  • Provide evidence in criminal and civil court as a representative of the NDIA
  • Carry out administration, reporting and project work as required
  • Build and maintain positive working relationships with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders, enhancing the reputation and influence of the Branch.
  • Promote workplace practices consistent with Agency policy and in accordance with Australian Public Service Values, Code of Conduct and leadership behaviours.
