What other jobs put you at the cutting edge of news events, help stop terror attacks on the street of our cities, protect our secrets and prevent cyber-attacks? Our programmes develop your skills in a supportive and collaborative environment, putting you at the heart of MI5’s investigations. Whichever programme you choose, you will be directly contributing to keeping the country safe.

WORK LIFE BALANCE
FlexibleA common misconception is that there is no work-life balance at MI5. However due to the nature of our work you can’t take it home with you, so when you leave the office you really do leave your work behind you.
