• the ability to be agile and flexible whilst working in complex and challenging environments
• demonstrated ability to develop capability to support the future strategies of the AFP including guiding, mentoring and coaching as required

IMPORTANT - For this application process, applicants are required to provide de-identified information for the panel to consider. This means applicants must not provide their name or gender on any documents uploaded to the online application, e.g. resume/CV and responses to the selection criteria should not include names, specific information about previous managers/ supervisors or personalised comments from your performance feedback documentation. Any information that could allow a panel member to identify a candidate should not be included. Candidates are also reminded that the content of applications, resumes/CVs etc. is to be limited to ‘unclassified material’.

Revised Candidate Pack:

Please ensure you read, understand and comply with the de-identification checklist and ensure your application and resume/CV meets the requirements.


If an application is received that includes information that is inconsistent with the provided checklist, the application will not be considered as part of this recruitment process.


An enhanced selection process will be undertaken to fully assess shortlisted applicant claims. Assessment centres will provide a practical scenario based assessment of professional competencies, leadership and management skills. Assessment centres will be in addition to Independent Selection Advisory Panel deliberations.

The AFP acknowledges that there is clear evidence that gender diversity in decision-making roles leads to greater transparency and improved ethical orientation. In addition, diverse teams have been shown to be smarter, more effective and linked to more innovative organisations. Women and members from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply for this EL recruitment round.

Flexible working arrangements will be considered for successful applicants.

Attractive remuneration packages are available, with the terms and conditions of service as contained in the AFP Executive Level Enterprise Agreement 2016-2019.

Closing Date: 4pm (AEDT) Sunday 28 January 2018.

Late applications will not be considered without the explicit approval of the Selection Committee Chair.

The AFP’s application process for non-policing vacancies consists of two-steps for non-AFP employees. (Existing AFP employees only need to undertake step 1 of the process).

Preliminary step: It is strongly recommended that you take action now to obtain a copy or copies of your driving history through the relevant local motor registry or Road Traffic Authority.

Step 1 Application:
• applicants complete and submit an online application;
• resumes and any other relevant documentation are to be uploaded to the application form and submitted before the closing time; and
• once your application has been submitted you will receive an automated email confirming receipt of the application with instructions on how to access the AFP Employment Suitability Questionnaire.

Step 2 AFP Employment Suitability Questionnaire (ESQ):
The ESQ is the tool in which applicant’s character is assessed against the employment character standards.
Following the instructions contained in the email from AFP Recruitment confirming receipt of your application, the ESQ must be completed and submitted by the closing date of the applications.

Traffic History:
All applicants are required to obtain a copy of their Traffic History. If you have resided in different states or territories, you must supply a traffic history from each state or territory. You are required to include 10 years of traffic history and not older than 3 months from date of application. If you have a traffic history report from more than one state or territory, you will need to scan all documents and attach to your application as one.

Traffic history information is available from the local Motor Registry in your state or territory. Do not upload individual infringement notices or unofficial documentation.

You are required to inform the Recruitment Team (afprecruitment@afp.gov.au) of any offences, infringements or police charges that occur during the recruitment process.

Omitting to supply relevant details may jeopardise your application.

If you do not currently hold, and have never held, a driver’s licence you should upload a Statutory Declaration providing this information.

If you have lived overseas, or have travelled extensively, please provide a Statutory Declaration stating the period you held a licence and listing any traffic offences. If you did not hold a licence during this period, please provide a Statutory Declaration stating this information. Statutory Declarations can be found online.

You need to allow two to three weeks to get access to this information as a minimum. It is recommended that you request these reports at the commencement of your application.

Once the ESQ has been completed applicants will receive an automated email confirming receipt of the ESQ.

Interested applicants should refer to the Applicant Information Pack for details on the inherent requirements, employment character standards and required documentation to ensure they are best prepared to submit an application.

If you have any questions about the ESQ or Traffic History, please contact AFP Recruitment on (02) 6131 5555.
