  • ASIO has a vacancy for a Senior Executive Service Band 2 leader who can inspire a team to do things our adversaries believe are impossible

    ASIO protects Australia and Australians from threats to their security. In a complex, challenging and changing security environment, our success is built on the imagination and intelligence of our team. ASIO’s people are ordinary Australians but they do extraordinary things – they are our most important asset.

    ASIO has a vacancy for a Senior Executive Service Band 2 leader who can inspire a team to do things our adversaries believe are impossible. We invite applications from people with the following attributes:

  • Ability to lead and inspire multi-disciplined teams to innovate, develop and deploy technical intelligence solutions.
  • Exceptional communication skills to drive your team and deliver against ASIO’s mission critical outcomes.
  • Experience in one of the following fields: electrical engineering, computer science, software and/or hardware engineering.
  • Proven ability to deliver results in a dynamic, high-pressure and challenging environment.
  • Ability to establish strategic partnerships and make decisions in the best interests of ASIO as a whole.
  • Appreciation of the legal framework that governs ASIO operations.
  • You will form part of the Senior Leadership team, where you will work closely with the Director-General and Executive to deliver outcomes consistent with the Organisations practices and values.

    ASIO is committed to a diverse and inclusive environment, where all staff feel valued and respected.

    ASIO staff are carers, parents, grandparents and community volunteers and may come from various backgrounds, including music, teaching and nursing. We are proud Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and second or third generation Australians. We are introverted, extroverted and neurodiverse. We are tradespeople, technically-minded, corporate and intelligence professionals. We are your neighbours and part of your community. The only difference is, we don’t tell you where we work or what we do.


    To be eligible for the role, you must be:

  • An Australian citizen
  • Assessed as suitable to hold and maintain a Positive Vetting security clearance.
  • Remuneration

    An attractive executive salary plus vehicle allowance and superannuation will be available to the successful applicant(s).

    Employment conditions

    Employment is under the ASIO Act 1979. Conditions of service are similar to those applying in the Australian Public Service. We recognise entitlements accrued under the Public Service Act 1999 and provide for continuation of superannuation under the Commonwealth schemes. Salary packaging arrangements are also available.


    ASIO provides a number of benefits to its staff including:

  • A competitive salary, including a 7.5 per cent allowance to compensate for the requirement to maintain a Positive Vetting security clearance.
  • Employer superannuation contributions of 15.4 per cent.
  • Four weeks annual leave per year.
  • A variety of leave options to assist you to maintain your work-life balance.
  • All employment decisions and selection processes within ASIO are based on merit principles and candidates must be prepared to undergo various selection stages.

    ASIO thanks all applicants for their interest in applying. In accordance with ASIO policy, unsuccessful candidates will not be provided with feedback on any aspect of the selection process.

    ASIO holds all employment applications in the strictest of confidence. It is essential that you do the same. Please do not discuss your application with others as doing so may adversely affect your potential employment.
