DIO analytical positions have their own relevant work level standards which may assist you in addressing the selection criteria for these positions.
A comprehensive security assessment is a prerequisite for all DIO employees. Security assessments measure your personal integrity and suitability to work in a high security area. Security assessments comprise a background check, a psychological assessment, a questionnaire and an interview. Security assessments typically take 6–12 months from when you return your completed questionnaire and authorisations.
To work in some areas of Defence, it is necessary to complete a confidential psychological assessment. This assessment is a mandatory requirement for work in Defence intelligence agencies. This applies to all categories of employees including APS staff, ADF members and contractors. Psychological assessments are conducted to determine suitability to work in a high security environment and to hold a Top Secret - Positive Vetting (TS-PV) security clearance.
