I can work at MI5.

At MI5, we keep the country and its people safe. It means we have really rewarding careers that rely on people with varied backgrounds, ages and skills – just like our Admin Officer role. Whether you’ve just finished school or are returning to work after a break, whether you choose to work full-time or part-time, you’ll make a hugely positive impact and be at the heart of what we do.

When you’re setting up meetings, managing information or booking travel, you’ll get a valuable insight into the work we do. You just need two GCSEs (or equivalent) in Maths and English, at grades A*-C / 9-4, or some office experience. There’s really no ‘type’ of person we’re after. If you consider yourself to have a disability or long-term condition, we offer adjustments in the recruitment process and support you throughout your career. With plenty of initiative and a keen eye for detail, you’ll have everything you need to work across fascinating business areas.

If you want to make more of your admin skills, you can at MI5. Click on apply to find out more.
