Myth: ASIS only hires spies.
Intelligence officers are crucial to what we do. But running an organisation takes so many different skillsets, many of which you wouldn’t normally associate with secret intelligence. Just like any other Australian Public Service organisation, ASIS engages a number of highly motivated, knowledgeable and capable individuals to fill a variety of corporate roles. From Finance, HR, Psychology, Training or Corporate Policy and Governance etc, each role is critical to the success of our operations, with corporate officers applying their knowledge and expertise in a challenging environment where, due to the nature of our organisation, traditional solutions do not always apply.
