Where most people just see facts, you’ll see connections. Where most people just see numbers, you’ll spot leads that help us protect the UK.

MI5 is responsible for helping to safeguard the UK from threats to our nation’s security such as terrorism, espionage and cyber attack. You’ll be the person that translates data into the information we need to do it.

As an Intelligence Analyst, you’ll work alongside Intelligence Officers, providing them with the essential information that directs their work. Using the very latest technology and methods, you’ll analyse a vast array of complex and ever changing data – ensuring colleagues across the organisation understand your findings and recognise their significance.

It’s a fast moving and exciting role, with plenty of opportunities for development and progression. You’ll be at the heart of MI5. Yet, perhaps surprisingly, we’re not asking for specific experience. You’ll need a minimum of a 2:1 degree, or substantial relevant experience, but we are not looking for particular subject areas. A numerate background may be useful but is not vital – we are more interested in your ability to work with large sets of data. We need proactive and creative thinkers. People with a talent for handling data and excellent analytical skills. You’ll have the ability to adapt and to spot the connections and patterns that others often miss.

Show us all this, and we’ll give you the chance to use your expertise to build a career that’s very special.

To apply to MI5 you must be a born or naturalised British citizen, over 18 years old and normally have lived in the UK for nine of the last ten years. You should not discuss your application, other than with your partner or a close family member, providing that they are British. They should also be made aware of the importance of discretion.
