The Federal Court of Australia entity is the administrative organisation that engages employees under the Public Service Act 1999 to work in support of one or more of the following courts or Tribunal:

  • Federal Court of Australia
  • Family Court of Australia
  • Federal Circuit Court of Australia, and
  • National Native Title Tribunal.

The Courts Administration Legislation Amendment Act 2016 established the Federal Court entity. However, each court continues to maintain its distinct statutory identity, with separate functions and judicial independence.

Information about vacancies in support of the courts and Tribunal can be found on the employment pages of the Federal Court of Australia.
