It seems that recruitment drive might be kicking off for the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD), as it has started advertising a number of new senior positions.

There’s no hard number on just how many positions the ASD is looking to fill, but there are positions open at the Senior Executive Service (SES) Band 1 in four different groups:

  • Capability and Transformation Group
  • Signals Intelligence and Effects Group
  • The Chief Operating Officer Group
  • Australian Cyber Security Centre

Senior roles are available with each group, ranging from the directorate’s legal team and signals intelligence, to cyber defence.

“In all positions, you will have responsibility for leading a branch through a transformation program that recognises the rapid pace of development in technology and a fluid international security environment,” the job ad reads, “while continuing to deliver on the operational requirements of the position. You will work closely with international partners and will manage an Australia-wide workforce.”

There’s also a fuller description of the roles and responsibilities in a PDF information pack.

“ASD is always on the lookout for talented and highly experienced leaders to join our team,” a spokesperson for the Australian Signals Directorate told us.

“Leaders in ASD will contribute to growing the agency and implementing REDSPICE, a major program that adds 1,900 new positions and delivers new major capabilities.”
