The ACIC is at the forefront of tackling serious and organised crime targeting Australia, both within our borders and offshore. Our staff operate against a pervasive, transnational and globalised criminal threat, and work hard to realise an Australia hostile to criminal exploitation. 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.

About the branch

About the role
Assurance Officers at the ACIC perform administrative and engagement activities including record-keeping, reporting, quality assurance as well as project work and direct engagement with oversight bodies i.e. Commonwealth Ombudsman Office. They collectively support ACIC covert operational activities and Inspection of Agency Records by ensuring the Commission complies with legislative requirements governing capabilities such as TI and surveillance.  

Occupants of these positions develop expert knowledge of relevant provisions of the TIA Act 1979, SDA Act 2004 and 1AB Crimes Act 1914 (Cth), and also facilitate inspections of ACIC records under those laws by the Commonwealth Ombudsman.

Assurance Officers work as a team to champion the ACIC’s well-established ‘Excellence in Compliance’ Strategy, that encompasses quality-assurance processes and training.
