Information. Technology.

This is more than IT. These two words sit at the heart of what we do and make this a unique challenge. You see, we're looking for people to become part of the technology and engineering team at SIS.

This is the team that safeguards the security and effectiveness of our international communications network and intelligence gathering system, operating in nearly every country in the world; the team that ensures all intelligence that is stored in a way that both optimises its usefulness and guarantees its security, as well as making sure our people have the technology they need to perform at the highest level.

On joining, our technology recruits will receive a full induction into SIS, followed by a specific IT induction. From then on we'll help you develop your skills with individually tailored training, to make the most of your talents and interests. Depending on how your career at SIS progresses, there will be a full range of potential opportunities for you to explore, including membership of professional bodies.
