Cracking down on corruption in Canberra will be a part-time gig for the ACT's new integrity commissioner.
It will also be a lucrative post at nearly $2000 a day, according to the job advertisement for the newly-created role.
The territory government is paying executive recruitment firm Ford Kelly about $40,000 to find candidates for the job, with the anti-corruption commission due to start work on July 1 this year.
The commission was created last year, after lengthy negotiations between Labor, the Greens and the Liberals.
The job ad posted on Friday said the commissioner role will be a part-time, seven-year appointment, which will set the "strategic direction" of the commission.
The commissioner must have been a Supreme or Federal Court judge, a justice of the High Court, or a lawyer for at least 10 years, and have "extensive knowledge of and experience in criminal investigation or criminal adjudication, law enforcement or the conduct of investigations, or public administration, governance or government".
"Exceptional leadership, communication, representational, interpersonal and analytical skills are fundamental requirements," it reads.
The commissioner cannot have been a politician, or a public servant in the past five years, and will not be able to have any other paid gigs that conflict with the job in any way.
The strict criteria led to speculation last year that the ACT would be hard-pressed to find anyone to take up the job.
Whoever does step into the role will be well compensated for their time.
A remuneration tribunal ruling from December shows the commissioner will receive the same rate of pay as a Supreme or Federal Court judge - almost $2000 a day, up to a maximum of $458,840 a year.
A submission from Chief Minister Andrew Barr to the tribunal said while the job was part-time, there should be "capacity in the determination to work an increased number of hours subject to workload requirements".
Greens leader Shane Rattenbury said he was not aware that the job would be part-time, but he did not mind so long as they had enough time to get the job done.
He said Tasmania's integrity commissioner was only part-time, although NSW had a full-time commissioner and two part-time assistant commissioners.
Applicants for the ACT commissioner have been told they need to be available around late April or early May to help set up the new integrity commission and hire staff.
The office will have around 10 staff, including a counsel assisting and an investigative team, with a budget of $8 million over four years.
The commissioner will also be eligible for a maximum relocation allowance of $51,533, which can include the cost of temporary accommodation up to six months and stamp duty for a new property purchased in Canberra.
It may also include legal fees for selling their old house, removalist fees and travel costs.
The commission is set to investigate allegations of corruption involving public servants, politicians, and government contractors, with a focus on serious and systemic cases, and the most serious cases of misconduct.
The ACT is still waiting for a decision from Prime Minister Scott Morrison as to whether the commission can investigate corruption in ACT Policing, as it requires a change in the self-government act.
The commissioner will ultimately be appointed by the Speaker, although the choice must also be signed off on by the leaders of all three parties in the Assembly.
The ACT must also recruit a chief executive for the integrity commission, as well as a part-time inspector who will hold the commissioner to account.
