The Administrator Security Information provides support to the Manager Security Information in the management of information from core security systems like the Security Reporting System data, Rail Emergency Management (REM), Day to Day Intelligence and any relevant Business Intelligence solutions. 

The role assists in the preparation and delivery of the Management Information reporting and strategic analysis to management, key stakeholders and other areas of the division. In addition, the role assists in developing and presenting value-added information that informs the efficient and effective deployment of resources to reduce crime, fare evasion and anti-social behaviour. 

What you will do

Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Assist in maintaining the data information systems used by Security to ensure uninterrupted availability of intelligence information. 
  • Assist in the analysis and reporting of criminal intelligence and security incident data in an efficient and effective manner to optimise decision making and resource allocation.

  • Assist in the publication of security information analytical reports.

  • Execute safety responsibilities, authorities and accountabilities consistent with Sydney Trains safety management system requirements which are defined in SMS document number SMS-02-RG-3058. 
  • Actively develop and engage in fair and equitable workplace practices and behaviours. 
  • Work in a safe manner and ensure that the data entry operators work in accordance with health and safety procedures and programs.

Specialisterne Australia exists because autistic candidates are being overlooked for employment, largely due to the many barriers that autistic candidates come up against when competing for employment in typical recruitment practices.

Specialisterne has created an end-to-end recruitment and employee support framework that removes those typically found barriers, and replaces them with practical, demonstrative assessments and activities whereby candidates, over a patient process, have the opportunity to:


  • better understand the requirements of the roles they are competing for to assess if they are the right opportunities for them
  • meet team members and managers throughout the process
  • connect with others who have previously gained employment via this program
  • demonstrate through practical assessments and activities their motivation and suitability for the available roles over a patient process
  • ‘show’ what they can do (not just tell someone what you can do)

At Specialisterne Australia our values are Respect, Clarity, Accommodation, and Accessibility. We keep these in mind in all that we do.  We work with our partner employers to promote and sustain a diverse and inclusive workforce.  To support you further throughout your journey, we provide a mentor and buddy, and we work with you to tailor an individual plan to accommodate your needs in the workplace, also providing a period of support for both you and your future employer, ensuring a successful transition into your new role.
