IBAC's work is challenging – we expose public sector corruption and police misconduct. We work together on this because we all want a public service that always acts in the best interests of Victoria.

  • It doesn’t matter whether you work on investigations or in finance, you need a clear national criminal check, security clearance and to be sworn in to work at IBAC.

    We have high expectations. We want the public to bravely call out corruption and misconduct. We expect people to trust that we’ll leave no stone unturned in investigating alleged corruption and misconduct.

    We require our team to work with sensitive information, confidentially and respectfully. It’s not the kind of job you can go home and tell your family or friends about. Above all, we understand that if we’re to foster a corruption-resistant public sector, we need a workplace built on integrity.

    Not all of our people are focused on investigations, digital forensics and surveillance. Over half work in:

    • Prevention & Communication
    • Assessments, Reviews, Compliance and Legal
    • Corporate Services.

    Wherever our people work, they’re exposing and preventing public sector corruption and police misconduct. The challenges we face together allow staff to grow and develop in their chosen field while building a corruption-resistant Victoria.

  • IBAC is a small, independent statutory authority doing big things. Our people are exposed to a broad range of integrity issues and drive significant change across state government, local councils and Victoria Police. This provides a real opportunity to work closely with colleagues from different professional backgrounds, across teams.

    We’re a great group of people to work with but an anti-corruption agency isn’t for everyone. We get it. People who enjoy working with us are generally: 

    • Courageous and up for a true challenge. They share our vision for a corruption-resistant public sector. Our work is not for the faint-hearted, given our jurisdiction covers the entire Victorian public sector (police, government departments, state agencies, local councils, schools and universities, public hospitals, parliamentarians and the courts).
    • Patient and professional with real staying-power. Our projects are complex and can quickly change direction, which takes understanding and respect for the process of tackling corruption.
    • Flexible, measured and fair. We must be nimble enough to respond to what’s happening but well considered, bringing objectivity to every aspect of our work.
    • Trustworthy with a keen sense of duty. Our people need to strike the right balance between working with the utmost confidentiality and understanding what they can and can’t share, while remaining open and collaborative across the agency.
  • We believe IBAC’s best is yet to come.

    We’ve racked up an impressive list of achievements in our first ten years. As crime and corruption become more complex and sophisticated, our responses and workplace must keep pace. We will continue to evolve, improve and respond as we work towards a corruption-resistant Victoria.

    This won’t happen overnight. Building a strong culture of integrity across the public sector requires unwavering fortitude and team work.

    We have our work cut out for us but, with the right team, we can achieve great things.
