Job Description


The Australian Customs and Border Protection Service manages the security and integrity of Australia's borders. It works closely with other government and international agencies to detect and deter unlawful movement of goods and people across the border.

The National Director, Intelligence (NDI) is a newly formed role and reports to the Deputy CEO, Maritime, Corporate and Intelligence. As Customs and Border Protection faces the challenge of ever increasing volumes of international passengers and goods crossing the border and increasingly sophisticated criminal activity, the NDI will have the key responsibility of integrating and enhancing the agency’s intelligence and information management capability to support our strategic, intelligence-led, risk based approach to border management.

The NDI will be responsible for the identification and assessment of new and emerging threats to the border and the provision of intelligence and targeting that informs and underpins risk mitigation. This incorporates intelligence that informs and supports policy, targeting and operational responses to the management of border risks in the maritime people smuggling, shipping, aviation, cargo and passenger domains. Although not a designated position, the NDI will also perform the role of strategic Information Officer and for the first time will also be responsible for integrating the agency’s existing intelligence and analytics capability with it’s information management capability. In part, resources to support these activities will transition from the current Information Technology Division.

Before applying, please obtain selection documentation by emailing quoting Ref. No #351.


To be a strong contender for these important and challenging role you will have demonstrated leadership skills, understand the link between strategy and operations and be innovative and flexible. You will have an impressive ability to quickly grasp complex issues and be able to present solutions that are practical and responsive. Your outstanding stakeholder relationship skills, collegial personal style and ability to engender trust and respect will be complemented by sound judgement, intellectual rigour, tenacity and resilience.

The successful candidate will be required to obtain and maintain a security clearance at the Negative Vetting 2 level.
