Making a difference
Our singular focus on the mission, striving for real results that make the country safer.
Working as one as MI5, bringing together in common purpose the best that everyone can give, supporting colleagues and treating each other with respect, and forging close partnerships and teams with others we depend upon.
Highest standards of integrity, objectivity and sense of proportion; great skills, expertise and experience; high quality information management; strong security culture; commitment to the rule of law, ethical conduct, accountability and compliance with our own procedures.
Constantly seeking new ideas and different approaches to advance our capabilities, improve our ways of working, and overcome obstacles to our success; an embedded habit of learning and development and sharing knowledge.
