Job Description


The National Archives of Australia (the Archives) is looking for an experienced Chief Information Officer (CIO) to lead our Information and Technology Branch.

As the CIO you will advise and support the Director-General and, as required, the portfolio ministers and the Advisory Council. The role is also responsible for the Archives' own Information Governance obligations under Digital 2020. As the Archives moves through its own digital transformation, the CIO will be responsible for driving change and implementing innovative outcomes that will dramatically improve the Archives’ digital capabilities in the areas of storage, digital preservation and data discovery. The Archives stewardship responsibilities cover personal data and information with a national security classification, hence the digital capabilities must meet the relevant INFOSEC standards, supported by all necessary measures to maintain resilience against current and emerging cyber threats.

The CIO will also be responsible for leading the branch and contributing to the overall leadership and strategic directions of the Archives as part of the broader Executive Board- demonstrating a broad understanding of the legislative, governance and accountability frameworks that the Archives operates within and strong leadership, people, budget and resource management skills.
