Meet the AVP team

AVP candidates are assessed and selected on their merit and potential. AVP prioritises lived experience, focusing on the leadership, planning and teamwork skills of each candidate, appreciating that we must work together with all people, parties and Parliaments in order to best serve and support all Australians.

Each AVP candidate is also required to agree to the AVP Workforce Policy which includes annual training requirements to further develop their planning and leadership capabilities, to best serve the Australian public in their role.
