The EL1 Assistant Director Technical Assessments is part of a team of technical experts responsible for managing technical analysis for Defence export controls and representing Australia's interests in the multilateral export control regimes.


The Defence Export Controls Branch (DEC) plays a key role in protecting national defence capability and contributing to Australian counter-proliferation efforts. DEC manages Australia's export control system, through which it assesses whether or not military and dual-use goods and technologies, as specified in the Defence and Strategic Goods List, may be exported to particular destinations.


The Technical Assessment Directorate's role includes assessing the control status of goods and technology, identifying new and emerging technology significant to defence and national security, and developing and assessing control proposals for the multilateral export control regimes: The Australia Group, Nuclear Suppliers Group, Missile Technology Control Regime and Wassenaar Arrangement. Effective export controls rely heavily on strong and effective relationships between DEC and the industry and research sectors that export military and dual-use goods and technologies.


A significant priority for these Technical Assessment positions is relationship building with industry, the university and research sector and other key international and national government agencies, conducting outreach and training, and providing advice on goods and technologies that are critical to Australia's defence capability. The successful applicant will be able to effectively build and sustain relationships with a range of stakeholders, provide expert technical advice in the export control context, and contribute to identifying and safeguarding emerging and innovative technology with conventional military and weapons of mass destruction capability application.


The successful applicant will demonstrate excellent judgement and problem solving skills, strong communication and influencing skills, initiative and the ability to deliver quality outcomes in a timely manner.


Application Closing Date: Thursday 09 April 2020
