In the intelligence community, human intelligence is the title applied to information that comes from human sources. But at ASIS, it’s also how we describe the unique skillset required to be an ASIS Intelligence Officer. People with high levels of human intelligence don't just have a high I.Q, they also have innate interpersonal abilities like negotiation, perception, persuasion and the ability to empathise with and understand human beings.
Intelligence Officers plan, develop and manage intelligence operations overseas in challenging environments. They draw on their judgement, intellect and personal courage to reach outcomes that have the potential to save Australian lives. If you’re highly motivated, have an innate sense of curiosity and a love of travel, then this role might be for you.
To succeed as an Intelligence Officer, you will need to demonstrate superior interpersonal and liaison skills in order to build strong relationships.
As a rough guide, the selection process for Intelligence Officers generally takes around seven months from the date of application to the offer of employment.
