The Australian Building and Construction Commission will be on the hunt for a new Commissioner following the resignation of Nigel Hadgkiss this week.
Employment Minister Michaelia Cash said the Federal Government has accepted his resignation.
Mr Hadgkiss will serve a two week transition period while his responsibilities are handed over to an Acting Commissioner.
Ms Cash said the Government thanks Mr Hadgkiss for his service and wishes him well in his future endeavours.
Mr Hadgkiss has had a long and distinguished career in the public service, including serving as Assistant Commissioner of the Australian Federal Police, Executive Director of the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (NSW), Director of the Building Industry Taskforce and Director of Fair Work Building and Construction.
Mr Hadgkiss has also served on three Australian Royal Commissions, was awarded the Australian Police Medal for distinguished service, and has been integral in a number of critical criminal inquiries throughout Australia.
