Job Description


The First Assistant Director-General, Innovation and Enabling Division will make a major contribution to the management and leadership of ASIS, the Australian Government’s unique provider of human intelligence services. The successful applicant will provide strategic leadership to a critical Division of ASIS that is responsible for a combination of operational and corporate functions, including oversight of ASIS’s technical capabilities, the management and implementation of major technology projects, the production and distribution of ASIS product and the management of ASIS’s IT and communications systems. The Division is also responsible for ASIS’s data analytics capabilities and the organisation’s innovation hub.

The position requires an experienced, committed and highly-skilled individual to manage a full range of technical, operational support and enterprise functions at Division Head level. This position reports directly to the Deputy Director-General Capability and Corporate Management.

The First Assistant Director-General, Innovation and Enabling Capability Division will join the senior management team with a demonstrated capacity to work collaboratively, anticipate opportunities, encourage creativity and innovation, resolve complex issues, manage and implement major technological projects and provide outstanding strategic direction and leadership across the Division and the Service.
Communication skills of the highest order are an essential requirement, as is the ability to operate in accordance with – and actively promote - ASIS’s values and ethical standards. Given the nature of ASIS’s work, effective and efficient management of our technical, operational support and enterprise functions is fundamental to the success of the Service in delivering its unique product for the Australian Government.

The position is Canberra based, with conditions of service similar to those in the Australian Public Service, including superannuation. (The successful candidate will be required to obtain and maintain a high level security clearance and Australian citizenship.)
