AFP Band 6 and 7 $93,233 - $110,172


Applications are sought from suitably qualified candidates wishing to be considered for the role of Criminal Intelligence Analyst with the Australian Federal Police, Specialist Operations portfolio, to fill a number of current and upcoming vacancies on a permanent and non-ongoing contract basis.

AFP Intelligence provides a single picture of crime impacting the Australian community, enabling the AFP to be intelligence informed in an increasingly complex and challenging criminal environment. Intelligence works to anticipate, prevent, disrupt and detect criminal activity by collecting, analysing, producing and disseminating intelligence which answers the who, what, where, when, how and why.

Criminal Intelligence Analysts engage in the collection, collation and analysis of information to produce and disseminate intelligence which influences organisational decision-making at all levels. They support criminal investigations and AFP corporate objectives in their ability to manage and assess large-volumes of disparate data, applying contemporary analytical tools and techniques to produce actionable operational and strategic intelligence. Criminal Intelligence Analysts communicate effectively and with influence in order to achieve intelligence and operational outcomes.

Experience working in an intelligence and/or law enforcement environment, AND one (or more) degrees or further qualifications preferably from the following list or a relatable field, are essential requirements:

  • Criminology
  • Counter Terrorism
  • Security
  • Intelligence
  • International relations
  • Political Science

Successful applicants will support the AFP’s operational and strategic activities by delivering timely, relevant and high quality analytical support to a range of internal and external stakeholders. This may include working closely with investigative teams, operating within joint taskforces or providing high-level analysis in support of broader AFP and government priorities. AFP Criminal Intelligence Analysts will also be active contributors in the promotion of a positive and professional culture and fulfil a mentoring role to more junior members.

Successful applicants can expect to work in a variety of areas including operations intelligence and interagency intelligence. On commencement, successful applicants will commence a training and development pathway relevant to their role, which consists of extensive formal and on the job training. As part of this training, successful applicants will also be required to attain the Diploma of Police Intelligence Practice within 12 months of their commencement date.

Please be aware Intelligence currently operates within both Operations Support and Support working patterns. This therefore means only some advertised roles will attract composite.

As part of the application process, all applicants will be required to complete intelligence testing, a cognitive ability assessment designed to measure your ability to understand verbal, numerical and abstract relationships. This intelligence testing is called Revelian Cognitive Ability Test, RCAT. Please note if you are successful through this gateway, you will be required to validate your unsupervised RCAT result in a supervised environment.  

The AFP acknowledges that there is clear evidence that gender diversity in decision-making roles leads to greater transparency and improved ethical orientation. In addition, diverse teams have been shown to be smarter, more effective and linked to more innovative organisations. Women and members from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply for this recruitment round.

This position requires a Negative Vetting 2 security clearance and the ability to obtain a Top Secret Positive Vetting security clearance if required.
