Hi, I’m Jasmine. A little about me - I’m fascinated by people. Which is why, I studied psychology at uni. But while I was doing my dissertation, I found out I really like working with data. Seeing everything come together to back up my findings was more enjoyable than I ever thought it could be.

So when I saw the job ad for the Intelligence and Data Analyst Development Programme, I decided to give it a go. MI5 seemed less focused on the specific skills you need, and more about the potential that you have and turns out, I got in!

I was immediately put on a bespoke training course with the other new analysts. We learnt about MI5’s unique techniques, data, and how to approach problems. So the fact that I didn’t have loads of experience didn’t seem to be a problem at all.

Before I knew it, I was working on real data related to real MI5 investigations, and I’ve already been part of some fascinating operations. I feel like I’m learning something new every single day as part of an amazing, supportive team.

I just couldn’t think of a better way to start my career.

Fact or Fiction?
MI5 has a crèche for baby spooks.
