Job Details

At MI5, we protect the UK from all sorts of threats – from terrorism, through to cyber-attacks. So our Intelligence Officers are incredibly important. In fact, they play a vital role in our mission to keep the country safe. It’s one of the most challenging, stimulating and rewarding careers you’ll find. So don’t just dream about the impact you’ll have – realise it. It’ll be more fascinating than you’ve ever imagined.

Of course, this role’s incredibly unique, so you’ll need some training to boost your skills. That’s why you’ll join our Intelligence Officer Development Programme. You’ll start in a specific area such as warranty, legal or analysis. Wherever you join, you’ll learn how to confidently provide intelligence with confidence. After passing your Foundation Investigative Training (FIT) course, you’ll be a fully qualified Intelligence Officer, ready to move into one of our core investigative roles.

As an excellent communicator, you will work effectively with others. And with impressive organisational skills, you’ll be able to hit every deadline. Of course, we’ll offer all of the support you need. But thanks to your problem-solving abilities, you can make sound decisions and trust your own judgement. After all, this is all about spotting the details while being able to see the bigger picture.

So put your potential to real use and protect the UK.

MI5 is an Equal Opportunities employer, committed to reflecting the society we protect. Our recruitment process is fair, transparent and based on merit. We particularly welcome applications from diverse and under-represented groups.
