About the role
This is a role for those who are looking for a rewarding career in corporate services, and who want to use their skills to help keep the country safe by providing the vital services that MI5 needs to operate. As a senior manager within MI5, you’ll enable critical business decisions across the organisation. However, at the heart of this role is our people. Which is why you’ll involve others in your choices, and look ahead to consider how to best support your team. With your management experience, you’ll bring new ideas of how we can be prepared for tomorrow’s challenges, and ensure that we get the best out of our resources today. You’ll also come up with creative, innovative solutions, and communicate these to diverse teams made up of different levels of seniority.
Your first role with us will typically last around 2-3 years, and this could be in a wide range of areas including HR, information security or our legal branch. We’ll support you from day one so that you’re ready to demonstrate your individual leadership style. After your first role, you’ll be able to apply for a range of vacancies across MI5, depending on how you wish to progress your career.
Our Senior Business Enablers come from all walks of life. You’ll have found your own leadership style, and be open to developing yourself and finding new ways of working. As a critical enabler, a key part of your role will be to create a positive environment for your team, so you’ll be keen to use your skills to mentor and coach others. As an organisation, we have a mission to keep the UK safe, and you’ll play an important part in contributing to this goal.
