  • coordinate and contribute to the work of a team and provide advice and assistance on methods of task completion to colleagues;
  • coach or supervise others and set work priorities, allocate work, manage workflows and improve quality and performance;
  • contribute towards ongoing self-improvement and professional development, including seeking and receiving feedback on their own performance.

An APS6 team leader uses their skills and experience leading others plus their skills in structured critical thinking, data and geospatial analysis (including imagery analysis), and data visualisation. A team leader is accountable under limited direction to:

  • perform complex geospatial intelligence work using geographic information systems (GIS) and/or electronic light table software, and lead their team in the same work;
  • set work priorities, manage geospatial-intelligence workflows and resources;
  • build team capacity through coaching and feedback, and review and develop the quality of work undertaken by colleagues;
  • ensure compliance with legislative frameworks, government priorities and Defence’s mission and policy requirements;

  • contribute towards ongoing self-improvement and professional development, including seeking and receiving feedback on their own performance.

About our Team

AGO has an integrated civilian-military workforce comprising motivated people from diverse backgrounds, technical skills and academic disciplines who embody Defence and Australian Public Service values. The advertised roles are for a variety of teams that each focus on one or more topics relating to threats to Australia’s sovereignty, security and other national interests. These teams strive to provide high-quality geospatial-intelligence that makes an impact to decision-making in Defence, the National Intelligence Community, and wider government. An APS6 Geospatial Intelligence Team Leader will typically lead a team of 2–4 APS5/APS4 Geospatial Intelligence Analysts.

We offer flexible working arrangements and a range of professional development opportunities. Working in AGO provides the satisfaction of achieving outcomes that contribute to the security and safety of Australia, along with a good salary and above-award superannuation.

While the advertised roles are in Canberra-based teams, a career in AGO can lead to other roles based across Australia, to deployments supporting Australian Defence Force overseas operations, and to AGO secondments with international partner agencies.

Our Ideal Candidate

Our ideal candidates are people who are outcomes-focused, work well in teams and are resilient. They are receptive to feedback and are committed to the improvement of themselves and others. Our ideal candidates have demonstrated experience in solving problems and answering questions using GIS or remote sensing. For both roles, our ideal candidates can:

  • integrate and analyse geospatial information and data to provide quality geospatial-intelligence to customers;
  • use their effective teamwork and communication skills to maximise the quality, accuracy and timeliness of geospatial-intelligence insights;
  • engage widely with partners and stakeholders to ensure access to data and information, and to ensure effective integration of geospatial-intelligence in decision-making and partner operations and activities.

In addition, our ideal APS6 Geospatial Intelligence Team Leader is an effective leader, who uses their judgment and experience to make good decisions, and explains those decisions to colleagues. Our ideal team leader is focused on developing their people and improving workflows to optimise efficiency.
