Hi everyone, I’m Nick. I’m a Media and Comms graduate on MI5’s Business Enabler Entry Scheme.
I know what you’re thinking – media and comms to a business enabler scheme? I had absolutely no idea what I wanted to do after uni. I just wanted to do something that was a bit different, interesting and challenging.
MI5 was never on my radar. I didn’t even know they took on graduates to be honest with you. I saw an ad online and decided to find out more. The Business Enabler role really stood out to me because there was just so many things that you could do, there was project management, human resources, finance, training… the list goes on! And I realised that it meant I could really shape my own career.
Currently, I’m a Project Support Officer. Not only did we have some amazing training but I learnt so much from the job and picked up skills that I think I can use at literally any other organisation.
But, for now, I have got my eyes firmly set on other Business Enabler roles at MI5. I love working with people, so perhaps something in training or recruitment. And in the future I’m definitely interested in Agent Handling. Seriously, Google it.
