Speaker The Hon Bill Shorten MP

Position: Minister for Financial Services and Superannuation; Employment and Workplace Relations
Company: Australian Government

Biography

Bill Shorten is the Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations and Financial Services and Superannuation in the Gillard Labor Government.

He was re-elected as the Member for Maribyrnong at the 2010 Federal Election and sworn in to the Ministry in September 2010. On 12 December 2011 Bill was promoted to Cabinet and given the additional portfolio areas of Employment and Workplace Relations, while holding onto Financial Services and Superannuation.

As a senior member of the Gillard Government’s economic team, Minister Shorten has played a key role in introducing a price on carbon pollution, sharing the wealth of the mining boom with everyday Australians through increases to their retirement savings, and getting a national disability insurance scheme and a national injuring insurance scheme on to the ALP’s policy platform.

Before his promotion to the Ministry, Bill was the Parliamentary Secretary for Disabilities, Children’s Services and Victorian Bushfire reconstruction. Prior to that Bill worked at the Australian Workers Union, holding key leadership positions including State Secretary of the AWU Victoria Branch from 1997 to 2006 and the National Secretary from 2001 to 2007.

Bill has also been a director of AustralianSuper, Australia’s largest superannuation fund and a director of the Victorian Funds Management Corporation. This experience, combined with his MBA from the Melbourne Business School and a Bachelors degree in Arts and Law from Monash University, gives Bill both the education and practical experience required for such a diverse and complex portfolio.
