About the ACMA

ACMA


Shape your future in a fast-moving environment, in areas that matter.

The ACMA is an independent statutory agency responsible for the regulation of broadcasting, radiocommunications, telecommunications and some online content.

The purpose of the ACMA is to maximise the economic and social benefits of communications and media for Australia.
We do this by fostering a communications and media environment that balances the needs of industry and the Australian community through regulation, education and advice.

By engaging with consumers, industry and government to shape and apply the regulatory framework in the public interest, the ACMA promotes an innovative communications and media sector.

This work underpins our vision: a connected, informed, entertained Australia.

Our mission is to engage with consumers, industry and government to shape and apply our regulatory frameworks.
To do this, we need to have the right people, with the right skills, in the right roles, at the right time—both now and into the future.
