Job Description

Duties


The Australian Border Force (ABF) has been established as the front-line agency of the integrated
Department of Immigration and Border Protection, reinforcing the Commonwealth’s focus on the border
as a strategic national asset. Charged with significant service and enforcement responsibilities, it brings
together the full spectrum of operational border management; facilitation of the movement of people and
goods, investigations, compliance, detention and enforcement functions. By applying an intelligence-led
model, the ABF works with partner agencies across the border continuum to deliver effective control over
who and what has the right to enter or exit, and under what conditions.

The ABF consists of two directorates, Operations Group and Support Group. The two Groups work
in unison to bring to effect the ABF’s operational priorities.

The ABF is looking to create a merit pool to fill Commander positions with high calibre officers who will
accept the challenges associated with advancing this objective while developing amongst others values
of integrity, diversity and equal opportunity. Successful applicants may be required to relocate to the
relevant command.

We are seeking candidates who:

• have a strong law enforcement background and demonstrated experience across a range
of enforcement, compliance and legislative frameworks
• are accomplished leaders with a strong track record as a leader and successful executive
• have experience in a large operationally complex organisation and are adept at crafting
enterprise wide solutions
• have experience in command, control and coordination
• can lead a diverse and complex command
• display evidence of superior operational conceptual and strategic thinking skills
• contribute to policy thinking, forge clear directions and deliver large and complex
projects within tight timeframes
• display superior communication, negotiating and stakeholder engagement skills
• are adept at reading the political climate

It is expected that your application will provide evidence of exceptional accomplishment rather
than simply years of experience.
 

Eligibility


The successful candidate(s) must be an Australian citizen, successfully undergo the Department’s
Employment Suitability Clearance process and have the ability to obtain and maintain a security
clearance at a minimum level of Negative Vetting 2.
