About the role and purpose
Business area: Operations
Key relationships: NATA Sector management
In order to become accredited and maintain NATA accreditation, an organisation undergoes periodic assessments to demonstrate that it complies with the requirements of a specific Standard, for example, ISO 15189, and the relevant NATA accreditation criteria.
The NATA assessments are a peer review process which rely on the knowledge, experience and professional inputs of its highly valued 3000 plus volunteer Technical Assessor (TA) network.
By becoming a NATA Technical Assessor, you’ll work as a subject matter specialist (SME) during NATA assessments under the direction of a NATA Lead Assessor, and contribute your technical expertise to ensure assessment are relevant while also contributing to the profession and your further development.
Many of NATA’s Technical Assessors already work within NATA accredited organisations and are well recognised in their field of expertise. The volunteer work they offer to NATA is also well regarded within the scientific and technical community.
Therefore, it is essential our volunteers possess the following:
- At least 3-5 years of relevant experience
- Have qualification(s) and/or professional registration(s) in the area of expertise
- Hold Australian permanent residency.
If this sounds like you and you want to become part of something important, please complete the Expression of Interest (EoI) via the link below.
Once received, the NATA team may contact you to obtain further information including an up-to-date resume and cover letter. The information you provide will be assessed and we will only contact you if your EoI progresses to the next stage.
Please note that NATA reserves the right to appoint or decline a potential volunteer’s EoI according to the needs of the business.
It is also NATA’s expectation that those seeking to join NATA as a Technical Assessor have obtained the necessary authorisation from their employer to be a member of the panel of Technical Assessors and undertake the requirements of the role.
We once again thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer at NATA. If you have any questions about the process, please call 1800 621 666 and ask to speak with the HR Department.
