Yesterday, the Governor accepted the Government’s recommendation and appointed Neroli Ellis as Commissioner and Deputy President of the Tasmanian Industrial Commission.
Ms Ellis is an experienced industrial relations practitioner who is very knowledgeable regarding contemporary industrial relations practice. Her appointment will commence in October 2017, and will be for a period of 5 years.
Ms Ellis has served as the State Secretary of the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation for the past 15 years, and has previously been a manager in the State Service, and a director on a number of boards.
Ms Ellis was appointed from a very competitive field of applicants after the position was advertised nationally in May.
Ms Ellis will replace Nicole Wells, whose term as Deputy President is due to expire at the end of September.
