Communications Analyst

Communications Analysts and Foreign Language Analysts form a multi-skilled, culturally and linguistically diverse team that play an integral role in ASIO investigations.

Communications Analysts and Foreign Language Analysts use their critical thinking, sound judgement and technical skills to review a broad spectrum of communications data obtained through lawful interception under ASIO's special powers provisions and other relevant legislation.

Foreign Language Analysts also contribute their advanced language proficiency (including translation and interpreting skills) and their valuable cultural knowledge to inform operational activities and support foreign liaison.

Both Communications Analysts and Foreign Language Analysts provide reporting which includes context, insight and clarity from a wide range of information sources in order to build the intelligence picture used to protect Australia against threats to national security.
