Technical Intelligence Assessment Analyst - Defence Intelligence Organisation

If you are looking for a career where your work has a profound impact on upholding our nation’s security, you have come to the right place. The Defence Intelligence Organisation (DIO) provides intelligence advice to the Australian Defence Organisation and broader Government to assist in dealing with threats to Australia and its national interests. DIO identifies and assesses foreign military, political, social and cultural developments that affect the planning and conduct of Australian Defence Force operations. Issues potentially impacting upon Australian Defence capability developments, or influencing Australian efforts to promote regional or international stability, are also identified and assessed.

Our work is exciting and interesting. DIO believes that our people are our most valuable resource, and will invest in your training and development to ensure your time with us is deeply rewarding, both personally and professionally.

To achieve our mission to produce the best possible technical intelligence, we bring together smart, focused people from a variety of STEM backgrounds and disciplines to create a highly effective and cohesive workforce.

As an APS4, APS5 or APS6 Technical Intelligence Assessment Analyst, you will analyse and evaluate technical information from a variety of classified and unclassified sources, and provide intelligence assessments drawing on your STEM background to customers to reduce uncertainty in their decision making. You will be objective, have creative approaches to thinking, and possess strong research skills. You will also have an inquiring mind, seeking to confirm truths and probabilities, and the ability to scrutinise foreign developments to recognise trends and patterns. You will be aware of DIO’s place in government and its primary goals; and you will anticipate opportunities and propose strategies for addressing them. You will cultivate productive working relationships throughout government and with Allies.

Please note this opportunity is available to Australian citizens only.
