Thursday, December 28, 2006. 11:37am (AEDT) “The Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) is looking to recruit at least 170 people this financial year. The number of ASIO officers from non-english speaking backgrounds has more than doubled since 2004, and the organisation is looking for people with diverse backgrounds to conduct counter-terrorism and counter-espionage work. The intelligence organisation spent more than $2 million on recruitment advertising in 2005-6. The Federal Attorney-General, Phillip Ruddock, says funding for ASIO has also increased considerably. "I think we have now something of the order of 1,200 staff and that's double the number it had in 2000-2001 and we are continuing with a very active program that will expand the organisation in the near future to reach something in the order of 1,500-1,600 people," he said. http://www.abc.net.au/news/newsitems/200612/s1818848.htm
