ACC set to move bases – report

The Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) is planning to move into a new office as part of its ongoing structural changes.

The ACC has confirmed plans to move into 276 Princes St, at the corner of High St, the building formerly occupied by Gallaway Cook Allan, the Otago Daily Times reported.

An ACC spokesman told the publication the building would be one of its permanent bases in the city. He said the state insurer expected its recruitment process would begin, and decisions about roles would be announced, in early June. While the new roles are reportedly set to start in August, the ACC has reportedly yet to finalise certain aspects of the move as it is still in consultation with staff.

In April, the ACC announced it is changing the way it does business. The proposed structural changes include an adjustment for all ACC client service people – which will see an increase or decrease in the number of jobs at some of its locations. Additionally, it is creating five centralised locations around the country to work with customers who don’t usually require face-to-face support when recovering from less severe injuries such as sprains, strains, and fractures.

At the time, the ACC said these changes will happen over 2019-2020.
