National Careers Week 2023 6th – 11th March | [email protected]


We keep the UK safe from all kinds of threats – from terrorism to cyber-attacks. We need people who are fresh out of school, eager to get started and want to do something interesting and exciting. We offer a range of opportunities from busy administrative roles to technical training programmes. Whether you are supporting one of our investigative teams, working in corporate services or starting out on one of our technical apprenticeship schemes, you will be part of a supportive team with the opportunity to develop and learn about the exciting work of MI5, MI6 & GCHQ.

Opportunities For School Leavers

We believe that with the right mix of minds, anything is possible. So, we don’t recruit a particular ‘type’ of people. That’s why we work hard to attract people of different ages & backgrounds.

Embracing Disability & Neurodiversity

Developing a diverse and inclusive culture is critical to the success of our mission at MI5, MI6 & GCHQ. You might think we only recruit a certain type of person, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
