Border force officer recruit jobs

Join the Australian Border Force

A career with us gives you the opportunity to work in fast-paced, dynamic environments, while developing a career that is both challenging and rewarding.

To become a Border Force Officer, you will need to meet a number of requirements.  Our officers are operationally focused, uniformed and part of a disciplined law enforcement agency. They patrol our air and seaports, remote locations, mail and cargo centres and Australia's extended maritime domain. Our officers also perform specialist functions relating to investigation, compliance and immigration detention operations.

If you are interested in working with us, you should start by completing the Employment Suitability Self-Assessment. Our Border Force Officer Recruit Training Program is a great place to start your career with us.

About our training program

Run across 12 months, the training program is intensive and prepares you for a career in the Australian Border Force (ABF).

As a trainee, you will have a mix of instructional and operational training. During the operational (on-the-job) phase, you could be posted into a range of areas to complete your training. Upon successful completion of both phases you will graduate as an Australian Public Service Level 3 (APS3) Border Force Officer (General Duties).
