Job Title: Intelligence and Data Analyst Development Programme
Working For: MI5
Salary: £31,807 rising to £34,385 after 1 year
In a complex world, the impact you make will become clear.
At MI5, we protect the UK from all sorts of threats – from terrorism, through to cyber-attacks. Our Intelligence Analysts are crucial to this. By spotting patterns and solving problems, they make the connections which keep our country safe. So when you join our development programme, your impact will become clear.
This two-year programme will teach you all the skills and techniques you’ll need. Working alongside other new analysts, you’ll complete four months of bespoke training. Learning our unique techniques and approaches, you’ll make sense of data and the story it’s telling.
After this, a development partner will support you as you take on your first placement. You’ll work alongside Intelligence Officers, helping to unpick large data sets and spot patterns. With lots of continuing support and development, you’ll see the things that others might miss. After the first two years, you’ll have the chance to specialise in an area of analysis or train, mentor and manage others. No matter the path you choose, your insights will guide the decisions we make.
To join, we’re looking for your potential and passion to solve tricky problems. We’re not necessarily looking for a background in data, or even a degree. It’s all about having the curiosity to explore and the perseverance to spot things others don’t.
Although our work can, at times, be challenging, the way we work isn’t. Our offices are open, friendly and relaxed. We come together to share ideas and collaborate. And we all enjoy a really healthy work-life balance.
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.
