TGDP

Hi there. I’m Lily, and I’m a chemistry graduate at MI5’s Technology Graduate Development Programme, or TGDP. Let me tell you – I never thought that I could do something like this. But while at uni, I realised I didn’t really want to have a chemistry-focused career. I started looking for jobs where I could use the core skills I picked up doing my degree, but in a totally different way.

Then I found MI5’s TGDP. And let me tell you literally, in the first two weeks, MI5 caught me up to scratch with everything. They’ve been so supportive, and I’m being taught some, literally incredible things. They even paid for me to get formal qualifications relevant to my new job role. And with so many different opportunities around, I really can’t picture myself getting bored here.

As for right now? Let’s just say I’m part of some vital projects that have real-world impact. I’m not just making money for some people I’ve never met before. I’m helping MI5 protect lives, while also getting to work on some pretty cool technology. It’s amazing.
