About the Position

With an established national network of over 400 AA Quality Assured Service providers, it is to be expected that consumers may not always be entirely satisfied with the AAQA Affiliates services.

The new CPA is placing an onerous responsibility on the commercial relationships within the service value chain to ensure that services are delivered in line with the act. As such the Legal Advisor will be responsible for ensuring that formal complaints are logged onto the reporting system, fully investigated by him/her from both a consumer and AAQA Affiliate perspective and that applicable resolutions are facilitated and communicated back to consumers.

Whilst this is not the norm, the Legal Advisor will further be responsible for arbitrating and/or mediating disputes between aggrieved consumers and AAQA Affiliated businesses.

In addition, the Legal Advisor will be responsible for ensuring the quality of the AAQA directory listing by recommending and pursuing appropriate corrective countermeasure actions through the AAQA auditors and directly with the AAQA affiliates. Part of this responsibility is the ongoing monthly maintenance and reporting of the AAQA Affiliates CSI performance.
