Organisational skills. An eye for detail. Real initiative. Many people don’t realise these are the skills we’re looking for. Imagine using your administrative skills to help protect 66 million UK residents from all kinds of potential threats, such as terrorism and espionage.
Join MI5 and you’ll work across a variety of departments, each one offering a range of roles, diverse challenges and direct insight into our fascinating work – everything from tackling cyber threats to countering terrorism. You could be organising meetings, managing information and records, booking travel, looking after visitors or providing essential support to our officers. Whatever the task, you’ll play a part in ensuring our organisation runs smoothly. In fact, we couldn’t do our work without you.
Whether you join us full or part-time, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to broaden and enhance your administrative skills in a purposeful, rewarding context. You’ll need five GCSEs (or equivalent) at grades A*-C/9-4, or some office experience. But more than that, you’ll want to add value to our busy teams and play an important role in keeping the country safe.
We particularly welcome applications from women and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic candidates.
