Job Description

Forget behind the scenes support – you’ll be at the forefront.

London £27,586 pro rata (includes £5,500 London pay addition and concessionary pay)

Here at GCHQ, we have a clear purpose – to help protect the UK by working against cyber-attacks, terrorism and espionage. So, everyone who works here works towards that goal. Always working together, supporting each other every step of the way. We’re proud to collaborate, and even prouder to work with purpose.

Without our IT services, we couldn’t keep the country safe. Now, you have the chance to become part of that by helping to secure our sensitive IT assets and making sure our people have access to the right information. You’ll work with a range of internal and external teams and deal with a variety of people, from lawyers to software engineers. Building strong working relationships and focusing on customer needs, you’ll guide them in a number of areas. You could be configuring applications, carrying out audits or advising on governance. So, you’ll need the flexibility to adapt to changing priorities.

But we don’t expect you to know everything from day one. If you have the ability to deal with people at all levels and meet their changing needs, we’ll give you full training in our IT systems and business skills. Working with different teams at different locations, you’ll have the chance to build on your IT and business knowledge. You’ll also have a career pathway that gives you the scope to develop your career into a more technical or business-focused role after two years.

All we need from you is at least 2 GCSEs (in Maths and English) grade 5 or above (A-C grades); or O-Level grade A-C; or equivalent. 

Whatever your role, we offer flexible working, reduced hours or job sharing where possible, depending on operational needs. 

At GCHQ, diversity and inclusion are critical to our mission. To protect the UK, we need a truly diverse workforce that reflects the society we serve. This includes diversity in every sense of the word: those with different backgrounds, ethnicities, gender identities, sexual orientations, ways of thinking and those with disabilities or neurodiverse conditions. We therefore welcome and encourage applications from everyone, including those from groups that are under-represented in our workforce.
