The Opportunity

Australia's protection begins with our Intelligence Professionals.
The Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) are seeking applications from diverse and talented Australians to help collect information, connect the dots and play a crucial role in providing advice to government on matters of national security.

We value life, practical skills and experience as highly as formal qualifications.

We are looking for

Intelligence Officers


As an Intelligence Officer you will have the opportunity to develop a diverse career in both operational and analytical areas across ASIO. Whilst working in operational areas, Intelligence Offers often meet with members of different communities to mitigate security threats, while also building ongoing confidential relationships with people to assist us in achieving our security intelligence mission. Intelligence Officers also undertake postings in analytical roles.

As an ASIO intelligence Officer, you will be trained in the skill of collecting and analysing complex information to produce well considered security intelligence advice to government. You will become adept at growing and enhancing relationships and partnerships, and providing regular written and verbal briefings and advice to a range of stakeholders across government.

If you enjoy a varied role, have good judgement, are a critical thinker, are comfortable engaging with people from all walks of life, and you're interested in a career in intelligence and national security, we encourage you to apply.

Job Specific Capabilities for Intelligence Officers:

  • Provide impartial advice;
  • Gather, research and analyse information to prepare written and oral briefings;
  • Apply exceptional judgement;
  • Apply critical thinking and logical reasoning;
  • Operate independently and in teams;
  • Demonstrate personal and professional resilience; and
  • Demonstrate high level interpersonal and verbal communication skills.

Following successful completion of our 12 month Canberra based training program, Intelligence Officers participate in three to five year role postings where they may move between analytical and operational roles across a number of geographical locations.

Intelligence Analysts

As an Intelligence Analyst you will have the opportunity to develop a diverse career across a range of specialised analytical areas. You will identify and investigate patterns and anomalies, draw intelligence value from large volumes of information, solve complex problems and produce high quality advice for government. You will drive ASIO investigations, undertake research, make assessments and develop in-depth knowledge of specific issues.

Intelligence Analysts will apply best-practice analytical tradecraft together with subject-area expertise to be able to provide actionable advice on critical issues relevant to national security – often in high tempo environments.

To be successful in this role you will be expected to use your well-developed communication and people skills to work collaboratively in teams, provide high quality advice and form strong working relationships with internal, domestic and foreign partners, clients and stakeholders.

If you enjoy a varied role, are hard-working, resilient and adaptable and you're interested in a career in intelligence and national security, we strongly encourage you to apply.

Job Specific Capabilities for Intelligence Analysts:

  • Provide impartial advice;
  • Ability to work proactively;
  • Gather, research and analyse information to prepare written and oral briefings;
  • Apply exceptional judgement and critical thinking both analytically and operationally;
  • Operate independently and in teams;
  • Demonstrate personal and professional resilience; and
  • Demonstrate high level interpersonal and verbal communication skills.

Following successful completion of our 12 month Canberra based training program, Intelligence Analysts will be assigned a role in Canberra.

  • Employer superannuation contributions of 15.4 per cent;
  • A variety of leave options, including four weeks annual leave;
  • Flexible working/hours arrangements to assist you to maintain your work-life balance. We adopt an "if not, why not" approach to working flexibly. (Please note: due to our unique working environment, working from home may not be available);
  • Six staff-led diversity and inclusion networks
  • Study assistance, including financial support and study leave for tertiary education; and

  • be assessed as suitable to hold and maintain a Positive Vetting security clearance.

For the Intelligence Officer role:

  • you must be willing to be mobile throughout your career as an Intelligence Officer. This means potentially relocating to an Australian capital city every three to five years, noting the location will be determined by ASIO, based on organisational need.
  • some roles may require an Australian driver's licence (Class C).

ASIO is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive environment, where all staff are valued and respected.
