Full and part-time opportunities
At MI5, we protect the UK from a range of threats, including terrorism and espionage. It’s fascinating work with real purpose. That’s why most people assume we’re only looking for people with lots of experience or a degree. But we’re not. So, whether you’ve just finished school or you’re returning to work, join us as an admin officer and be at the heart of what we do.
With a real eye for detail and a lot of initiative, you’ll work across a variety of departments. Each one offers a direct insight into our fascinating work – everything from tackling cyber threats to countering terrorism. Using your excellent organisational skills, you could be setting up meetings, managing information, booking travel and looking after visitors. Whatever the task, you’ll provide vital support to our officers.
We know that starting a new job can be intimidating, so we’ll give you lots of support and a mentor from day one. Whether you join us in a full or part-time role, you’ll need five GCSEs (or equivalent) at grades A*-C/9-4, or some office experience. Importantly, you’ll want to add value to our busy teams and play an important role in keeping the country safe.
