The ACIC is at the forefront of tackling serious and organised crime targeting Australia, both within our borders and offshore. As a small agency that makes a real impact on serious and organised crime, we need talented and dedicated people who are intelligent, highly capable and seeking to make a difference to the lives of all Australians.

Our Investigators lead, plan and implement the agency’s intelligence operations to generate both unique insights into transnational serious and organised crime and opportunities for enforcement agencies to disrupt these networks.

As an Investigator at the ACIC you will employ intelligence collection tradecraft, investigative methodologies and project management skills whilst leveraging our core capabilities including coercive powers, human intelligence, physical and technical surveillance, bulk data and advanced analytics. You will do this within multi-disciplinary teams to understand and shape the environment to ensure operational intelligence strategies deliver on ACIC objectives. We are looking for investigators who are:

  • results orientated
  • adept at managing risk
  • comfortable with partial operational autonomy.

Our Investigators are provided a comprehensive training program on commencement, and supported to undertake further training to progress their career at the ACIC. The Investigator Training Program is run in various locations, and will require you to travel and potentially be away from home for up to 8–10 weeks. More details are provided in the Candidate Information Kit.
