At MI5, our Intelligence and Data Analysts are passionate about data and its role in keeping the country safe. Working with a variety of exceptionally large data sets, they spot patterns and make the right connections to help combat the increasing threats to the UK’s national security.
On our Intelligence and Data Analyst Development Programme, you’ll play an essential role in keeping the country safe. After four months of intensive training, you’ll join a team working at the heart of investigations by studying a wide range of often large-scale, complex and often incomplete data sets to provide vital intelligence.
You’ll learn more about data by trying new methods and working around problems. It’s about finding the right approach to each challenge you’re given, embracing the ‘eureka moments’ when you can see you’re getting somewhere and sharing your knowledge and findings with your team.
With your aptitude for working with data and your interest in learning the latest technology, you’ll combine a natural curiosity with the commitment and patience to focus on a particular task and the ability to work on your own initiative or as part of a supportive team. You’ll also be comfortable working in an environment where there’s plenty of unique puzzles to solve and priorities are constantly changing.
You’ll enjoy our relaxed, open and friendly atmosphere, where everyone pulls together and works towards the same goals. With access to comprehensive training and ongoing support, you’ll have a direct impact on investigations and our mission.
We particularly welcome applications from women and black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates.
