ASIS has multiple vacancies for Assistant Director-General, Technologists covering Chief Information Officer (CIO) and Chief Technology Officer (CTO) related functions. The Assistant Director-General, Technologists, 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 applicants will provide strategic leadership to critical Branches of ASIS that are responsible for defining and delivering ASIS’s technology strategy; providing secure and reliable ICT service delivery in an operational environment; developing and delivering new technology solutions; driving innovation and change management; supporting a combination of operational and corporate functions; and adhering to government and legislative requirements.

The positions require experienced, committed and highly-skilled individuals with a demonstrated track record of leading a diverse and complex program of ICT activities in a demanding and high pressure environment. They will also have significant experience building and sustaining senior-level professional relationships and a proven ability to attract, lead and motivate staff.
