Whether it's a small business, a global firm or a secret intelligence agency, there are certain corporate functions that are essential to the daily running of any organisation. It’s why ASIS has a need for those with corporate specialities, including finance, legal, HR, and training functions, as well as corporate policy and governance, to play a vital role in ensuring ASIS can achieve its operations.
In particular, we’re looking for those with close attention to detail, professionalism, flexibility, organisational skills and sound judgement, with a background in corporate environments. Given the nature of working in secret intelligence, you’ll often be required to use your expertise to develop unconventional, or non-traditional solutions to the tasks at hand – making a corporate role at ASIS perfectly suited to those looking for a unique challenge within their field.
Individuals with suitable education and/or experience in either the public or private sector are encouraged to apply.
The specialist nature of ASIS's work demands the highest levels of dedication, integrity and professionalism from our staff. For this reason, our selection processes are competitive and rigorous. As a rough guide, the selection process for Corporate Specialists generally takes around 7-12 months from the date of application to the offer of employment and covers a range of different selection phases. The selection process may include some, or all, of the following:
We can offer long-term career opportunities for the right person. Employment and promotion decisions in ASIS are based on merit, with regular promotion and internal transfer opportunities available.
We are looking for highly motivated and dedicated professionals from a broad range of backgrounds and/or academic disciplines. If you want to work for ASIS, you will need to have certain attributes, which are set out in job descriptions.
There are no special arrangements with the Australian Public Service (APS) or Australian Defence Force (ADF) for members to transfer directly to ASIS. However, some conditions of service may be recognised (e.g. long-service leave.). While APS or ADF members are eligible to apply for any advertised vacancy, they will have to compete on merit with other applicants for each position.

This is open for people to register their interest for a wide variety of roles across the Service. You must be a current Commonwealth Public Servant to register.
