One organisation – a million possibilities
The Australian Federal Police (AFP) can take employees to exciting places, undertaking diverse duties, with interesting people. It is one organisation, with a million possibilities.
A career with the AFP can take employees into the community, across the country or around the globe.
From providing non-policing support; or investigating transnational crime and money laundering, to combatting terrorism and people smuggling, to heading overseas to liaison posts or peacekeeping missions, to investigating burglaries and patrolling the neighbourhood in the ACT, you'll be at the front line; contributing to keeping the Australian community safe.
The AFP is an equal opportunity employer. Diversity in the AFP goes beyond cultural and linguistical diversity, to incorporate gender, sexual orientation, age and the way in which these differences create a stronger and more effective organisation. The AFP is committed to recruiting from the diverse groups that make up Australian society.
Throughout 2012-13 the AFP will be will be implementing a number of employment initiatives to ensure that critical skills and capabilities are met which will assist us in developing a viable skills profile into the future.
As the AFP is one of Australia's law enforcement agencies and with a view to retaining the confidence of governments, partners and the communities with whom we deal, the AFP applies a robust integrity framework. AFP employees must therefore, demonstrate the highest level of professional standards both in their official and private capacities so as to safeguard organisational integrity. To this end, the organisation has recently formalised its employment character guidelines (PDF, 100KB) which will be applied to all candidates seeking employment with the organisation.
