In the Intelligence Pathway, your training and development will be tailored for you to kick off your career in one of the three Defence Intelligence Agencies. We seek applications from graduates of all disciplines, because it is ultimately the combination of your skills and qualifications, in conjunction with your diverse experiences and aptitude for analysis, technology, innovation, critical thinking and/or problem solving that will propel you into your future career in the national security environment.

The Australian Signals Directorate (ASD)

ASD is a vital member of Australia's national intelligence community. Our motto, Reveal their secrets. Protect our own, summarises our roles: we collect foreign intelligence by interception; we provide advice and assistance on cybersecurity to make Australia the safest place to connect online; we conduct offensive cyber operations in support of the Australian Government and Australian Defence Forces (ADF). We are looking for graduates from almost every discipline to work in the analyst or corporate roles.

To achieve its mission, ASD requires people with strong integrity and a mix of specialist skills, adaptability, imagination, resilience and creativity.

These abilities are needed to out-think and out-imagine some of the most testing adversaries and problems imaginable. If you want to work with other smart, skilled people, consider ASD.

You will receive training in our specialised systems and enjoy working in multidisciplinary teams. You may have opportunities to travel domestically and internationally. You will be encouraged and supported to continually develop your skills to keep pace with evolving priorities and technologies. We are committed to the growth of our most important resource – our staff.

Australian Geospatial-Intelligence Organisation (AGO)

Understanding what happens where and when underpins all strategic and operational decisions. At AGO, you will inform decision making at the highest levels of government and contribute towards the protection of Australia's national security. You will provide unique insights into international developments and critical support to ADF operations and activities.

AGO provides Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) in support of Australia's Defence Force, broader Australian Government and National Intelligence Community priorities. GEOINT is derived from the exploitation and analysis of imagery and geospatial data that informs our understanding of features and events, with reference to space and time.

Defence Intelligence Organisation (DIO)

As a Defence Intelligence Organisation (DIO) analyst, you will provide strategic intelligence analysis to the Defence Minister, senior Defence staff, other Government agencies and policymakers. Your assessments and advice will help the Australian Government and the Australian Defence Force understand international developments and how they affect Australia's security. Your work as an analyst will include supporting Australian civilian and military Defence personnel deployed on operations around the world, by identifying vulnerabilities and potential countermeasures to mitigate this risk.

In all of DIO's analytic roles, you will be given the opportunity to advance your subject matter expertise and to develop your intelligence tradecraft skills through an extensive training program and attendance at a wide variety of domestic and international forums.
