“I joined the ACIC as an Intelligence Analyst coming from a diverse workforce background. In my first 12 months, I have had the opportunity to receive training in the Intelligence Analyst Pathway Training Program and work on such a wide variety of challenging and rewarding issues. The agency is energetic and innovative in keeping Australia hostile to criminal exploitation.”  - Intelligence Analyst, ACIC.

If you’re seeking a career where you can make a difference, intelligence analysts at the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) are at the forefront of tackling serious and organised crime both in Australia and offshore. Working across a variety of serious and organised crime threats, your work will directly contribute to keeping Australians safe.

Our intelligence analysts are provided comprehensive training as part of the Intelligence Analyst Training Program, and supported to undertake further study to progress their careers at the ACIC. The Intelligence Analyst 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.

Intelligence analysts at the ACIC make a leading contribution to the planning, development and production of intelligence outputs and outcomes, and they work closely with other intelligence professionals to drive operational activity.

Over the course of your career with the ACIC, you will have the opportunity to work across the full range of serious and organised crime issues—anything from illicit drugs and money laundering, to financial crime and national security. In some areas, you will become a subject matter expert. In others, you will need to quickly develop an understanding of current and emerging issues.

“Being at the ACIC has opened the door to many opportunities, particularly within ACIC’s unique covert and coercive capabilities. Coordinating a highly-skilled team of analysts and knowing that we have a significant impact on the highest echelons of organised crime is incredibly satisfying. I’m grateful to work in an agency that supports tradecraft development, promotes travel, and seeks out engagement with law enforcement partners both on and offshore—my networks and experience have grown exponentially.” – Senior Intelligence Analyst, ACIC
