Working in ONI brings a range of employee benefits:
Our salary rates are competitive, we have a range of allowances including community allowance and language allowances for linguists. There's a generous study assistance program, and we are committed to flexible work options for staff – a large proportion of our staff have flexible work arrangements. Many also have opportunities for overseas travel.
ONI is growing quickly, but we are still a relatively small organisation. We are a good fit for those who want jobs where they cover all the bases, whether in an analytic role, in our enterprise management area or in corporate specialties such as HR, IT or administration. All ONI staff gain a broad view of the National Intelligence Community and we work closely with many government departments. Analytical jobs offer the chance to dig deep in an area of expertise and to contribute directly to government decision-making. Enterprise Management roles offer the chance to collaborate with colleagues across the community on issues of strategic importance to Australia.
The Enterprise Agreement 2016—2019 sets out the terms and conditions for APS staff employed with ONI.
