Audio Visual Hardware Technician

Department of Defence, Australian Signals Directorate

The Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) is an intelligence agency in the Australian Government Department of Defence. Our mission, 'Reveal their secrets - Protect our own', accurately summarises our two roles. One is collecting foreign intelligence by interception. The other is information and cyber security – stopping others from doing the same to us. ASD operates in incredibly challenging and dynamic technical and operational environments. As such it requires a rare mix of staff with skills, adaptability and imagination. These abilities are needed to out-think and out-imagine some of the most testing adversaries and problems imaginable. If you want to work with other smart, skilled people, consider ASD for your career. If you consider yourself one of the best, then we are interested in you.
