We need the next generation of thinkers
At MI5 and MI6 we have experts who work hard to keep the country safe from all kinds of threats – from terrorism to cyber-attacks. This is your chance help us protect our country, develop new skills and discover how to use technology in ways you never imagined possible.
On this Cyber Security Technologist Level 4 Apprenticeship, you’ll learn to protect the public from harm by managing and dealing with cyber threats. Working alongside the world’s best cyber security professionals, with access to the most advanced technology, you’ll develop problem solving, teamwork, leadership and communication skills.
The apprenticeship will cover:
• Cyber Security
• Open Source Intelligence
• Network and Digital Communications Theory
• IT Security
• Penetration Testing
On completion, you’ll receive industry-recognised accreditation as well as five further Level 4 certificates from the British Computing Society.
We’ll pay for your training, and pay you a salary while you learn. You’ll spend 80% of your time working with our cyber teams, who develop tech and provide us with insights into complex, evolving threats to national security. Working with these teams, and with support from your mentor, you’ll be actively engaged in protecting our country. The rest of the time, you’ll learn relevant skills and study the technical background to cyber security.
It’s a fascinating, ever-evolving world at MI5 and MI6. If you have a passion for technology and a willingness to learn, this is a unique opportunity to solve problems you won’t see elsewhere.
