Working with us

​​​​​​​​​​Our people are integral to achieving our mission to protect Australia’s border and manage the movement of people and goods across it.

​​​​​​​​​​​We offer challenging and diverse careers that touch upon many parts of Australian life – industry and commerce, trade and travel, our national security, the protection of our community and the security of our offshore maritime resources and environment.

Our employees work in over 100 locations in Australia and outside Australia, across a range of interesting subject areas influenced by international and domestic developments.

Our success depends largely on our ability to foster the innovation, efforts and diverse skills of our people. We strive to create a motivating and rewarding working environment in which we value performance, our people, integrity, service and service standards.

We encourage applications from Indigenous Australians, people with disability and people from other diverse backgrounds. We are committed to providing a working environment that values diversity and inclusion and supports staff to reach their full potential.
