Discover how to protect 66 million people.
Now that’s intelligent.

At MI5 Intelligence Officers play an essential role in keeping the country safe, which makes for one of the most challenging, stimulating and rewarding careers you can imagine. As the country faces increased threats to national security, your role as an Intelligence Officer gives you the opportunity to have a tangible impact on the security of the UK.

On this programme, you could join us in areas ranging from policy, digital intelligence and warrantry, through to legal casework and analysis. Over two years, you’ll develop the skills needed to become a widely deployable Intelligence Officer, whilst you work in roles that directly support the intelligence capability of MI5. Your confidence and responsibility will grow as you gain a broader understanding of how MI5 functions.

After two years and on passing the Foundation Investigative Training (FIT) course, you’ll be ready to move into one of our core investigative sections. You could focus on international or Northern Ireland related terrorism, espionage or hostile foreign states. You’ll set investigative strategies, make recommendations and work with colleagues and the Police to prevent threats. Beyond this you’ll be posted to a business critical role in the wider Intelligence Officer family.

We particularly welcome applications from women and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic candidates.

What we are looking for

An excellent communicator with impressive organisational skills, you’ll manage competing requirements effectively. You’re also a natural problem-solver, able to make sound decisions and trust your own judgement. It’s all about spotting the details, while taking a step back to see the bigger picture.

You’ll have a collaborative ethos, capable of building effective relationships and inspiring confidence in those you work with. While your tasks are serious, the atmosphere is relaxed, open and friendly, where everyone pulls together and works towards the same goals.

Qualifications

You’ll need to have (or be expecting), a 2:2 degree in any discipline, or have three years’ permanent and relevant work experience.
