Initiate

The Energy and Water Ombudsman (SA) Limited (Energy & Water Ombudsman SA) is an independent body established to facilitate the prompt resolution of complaints and disputes between consumers of energy, water and sewerage services and the providers of those services. It aims to do this by providing a free, independent, accessible, fair and informal service to consumers.

The Essential Services Commission (Commission) is required to nominate four non-executive consumer directors for appointment to the Energy & Water Ombudsman SA Board. As the terms of the current consumer directors are all due to expire over the next 15 months, the Commission is seeking expressions of interest for four consumer director positions.

The Commission aims to achieve a balance and variety of consumer interests and perspectives among the membership of the Energy & Water Ombudsman SA Board, and is seeking to nominate directors that can represent and reflect the interests of consumers of electricity, gas and water services, or have experience with public interest or advocacy groups relevant to such services.

The Commission encourages people based in both metropolitan and rural/regional areas to apply, and welcomes applications from individuals that have demonstrated and direct experience of the issues that impact upon consumers in accessing electricity, gas and water services. The Commission particularly encourages applications from people who represent consumers who are Indigenous, who are culturally and linguistically diverse, who live with a disability, who are financially disadvantaged, who live remotely and/or are involved in small to medium sized businesses.
