Career paths

This is a recruitment site unlike any other, but then the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) is an organisation unlike any other.

A few years ago we wouldn't have been able to tell you very much about what we actually do, unlike other organisations who could give you detailed information. Now we can tell you a little bit more.

Intrigued? You will be.

Informed? Not as much as you'd probably like to be.

But there's one way you'll find out more about the unique work we do at ASD, and that is to come and work here.

In a constantly changing and uncertain world, ASD provides a unique service of vital national importance. Without the full picture, the Australian Government cannot make informed and timely decisions. Filling in that picture is what we are here to do.

It is no secret that we are a key Australian intelligence agency. Our aim is to provide customers with timely, responsive and comprehensive intelligence, analysis and advice.

It is as vital for you to decide if we suit your needs as it is for us to decide if you are right for ASD. If you are looking for an interesting and rewarding career and are ready to take on challenges critical to national security, you couldn't find a better starting point.

A highly professional organisation like ours offers numerous opportunities for individuals with exceptional qualities. We need dedicated people who can work in a multi-disciplinary team environment. We need individuals whose creativity and innovation will produce practical solutions to the challenges of intelligence and security.

Those we select come from a wide variety of backgrounds and bring with them a diverse range of abilities, interests and accomplishments. Ultimately we do not mind that much what you have done but are more concerned with what you could achieve.

Opportunities exist with us for university students and graduates across disciplines including, but not limited to:

As far as the future is concerned, we actively support your training and development needs and encourage you to determine your own career path. Whatever your area of expertise, at ASD you will have every opportunity to fulfil your potential and – if you wish – to work in different areas of the organisation. We believe that the development of individuals leads to more effective multi-disciplinary teams and to an informal, yet professional, atmosphere in which everyone works towards common goals.
