Job Description


Australia’s protection begins with our Intelligence Professionals.

The Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) is seeking talented Australians to help collect information, connect the dots and play a crucial role in providing advice to government on matters of national security.

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

The Opportunity

Intelligence Officers have the opportunity to develop a diverse career in both operational and analytical areas across ASIO. Whilst working in operational areas, Intelligence Officers 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.

You will need to be able to develop collaborative partnerships, have a well-developed analytical ability to assess information to produce security intelligence, provide regular written and verbal briefings and advice to a range of stakeholders across Government.

Following successful completion of our 12 month training held in Canberra, Intelligence Officers participate in three to five year role postings where they may move between analytical and operational roles as well as between various ASIO offices around Australia, as determined by organisational requirements.

If you're also interested in the Intelligence Analyst role (refer ASIO website for full details), please submit an Intelligence Officer application only. (by doing so you’ll be considered for both roles).


To be eligible for the Intelligence Officer role, you must:

- be an Australian citizen;
- have completed a three year undergraduate bachelor's degree (before July 2020)
- be willing to relocate to Canberra for the training period (removalist costs are covered);
- be assessed as suitable to hold and maintain a Positive Vetting security clearance;
- 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 needs; and
- hold and maintain a current drivers licence (must be 'C' class, with a Provisional licence as a minimum).


ASIO is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment, where all staff are valued and respected, in order to build a highly capable, innovative and adaptive workforce to achieve our purpose. We welcome and value applications from all eligible candidates irrespective of gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religious affiliation, age or disability. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are encouraged to apply.

Please advise us if you require any additional assistance in order to fully participate in the recruitment process or the workplace.

ASIO holds all applications in the strictest of confidence and we ask that you please employ the same level of confidentiality, for the safety and security of all current and future ASIO employees.
