At the UK intelligence services (MI5, MI6 & GCHQ), it’s our role to keep everyone in the UK safe and secure and protect UK interests overseas. The only way to achieve this is by having a truly diverse workforce across all our roles. That includes apprenticeships, internships, graduate schemes and other entry-level jobs.
Each of the UK’s intelligence services have a slightly different mission. But we all work together with one aim – to keep everyone in the UK safe and secure. We do this by protecting the UK from threats to national security through gathering intelligence and working closely with our partners. We don’t just work in the UK though; we protect the UK’s interests overseas too by working with our foreign partners to support global stability. We also use cutting-edge technology to protect the UK in the real world and online by identifying, analysing and stopping online threats. That’s why our work and our people really matter.
Making an application for the agencies starts on our official websites. We’d encourage you to chat to us at the What Career? & What University? Live Virtual Event on 12 & 13 November 2021 to find out more about the different opportunities in more detail and hear about live and upcoming roles. When you join the UK intelligence services you join a community of people who support each other to continually learn and achieve our full potential, whichever role you joined. If you are a parent, guardian or teacher then please do come and chat with us at the Parents’ Virtual lounge at the Event on 12 & 13 November 2021. We’ll also have our schools and graduate brochures available for you to view at the Event, along with insights from people who work at the organisations. We’ve got lots of opportunities for lots of different people and that includes school leavers from the age of 18. We’re committed to training and developing our people to help them achieve their full potential.
As organisations we’re committed to supporting you to achieve your career aspirations and helping you develop a broad range of professional skills. We do this in a collaborative and open culture which supports you to be your authentic self at work and progress your career as you would like to.
Our agencies are full of ordinary people who work together to do extraordinary things. We encourage open minds and attitudes and if you’re open to learning and making a real contribution to protecting 66 million people in the UK, you’ll find a range of options with the UK intelligence services.
