Intelligence Assessment Analyst
Duties The Joint Counter Improvised Threat Task Force (JCIT TF) assesses, plans, coordinates and executes Defence actions to counter current and emerging improvised threats in order to ensure operational freedom of action and protection of the joint force. Improvised threats will continue to be the weapon of choice for insurgent, terrorist and violent extremist networks that will employ improvised devices, systems and techniques to achieve an asymmetric advantage. JCIT TF maintains a deep understanding of current and emerging improvised threats, contributes to counter network effects, and addresses gaps in current capability, whilst identifying and exploiting opportunities to counter emerging improvised threats.
A high performing small team of intelligence assessment analysts works to support and inform the aforementioned Task Force mission and narrative. Intelligence and assessment analysts discover and analyse all source intelligence to form an assessment of the current, emerging and future improvised threats to ADF missions and Australian government interests. Analysts will work within a multi discipline and integrated ADF APS workforce and communicate regularly with partnering agencies and units.
Analysts will be expected to identify relevant information and disseminate through briefings, written reports and subject matter expert advice/exchanges.
