Intelligence Officers

Intelligence Officers plan, develop and manage intelligence operations overseas, with the aim of protecting Australia's national interests and security.


Turning intellect into intelligence.

Ever found yourself trying to figure out what someone else is thinking?  That's intelligence gathering - the process of learning the intentions of others in order to make more informed decisions.

The Intelligence Officer's role, in essence, is to collect, manage and plan intelligence gathering from sources outside of Australia's borders. In many cases, the intelligence they're collecting involves an active threat to Australia's security or economic interests.

To do this, they use superior intellect, interpersonal skills and judgement to lead successful intelligence operations. Although they share these common traits, there is no stereotypical Intelligence Officer. So if you're highly motivated, curious about people and like to travel, this may be the role for you.
