Data Scientist
Salary £55,788 to £59,297 (depending on experience)
Secretly we're just like you.
MI6 is the UK's foreign human intelligence agency. In our world, sophisticated technology and innovative techniques enable global covert operations. These strengthen our approach to gathering secret intelligence overseas. And our culture is where creativity, curiosity, insight and intuition are used to face ever-evolving challenges. To ensure we remain ahead of the game, we're looking for the country's brightest Data Scientists.
The role
To support the SIS mission, you'll provide specialist analysis skills and expertise. It's a great chance to use your data science skills and creativity to create analytical tools and techniques for a wide range of purposes. You'll work closely with operational teams to identify the most complex analysis requirements and find innovative solutions. You'll help to fully integrate data science and analysis as a standard part of our planning and implementation and play a defining role in our operations.
About you
With a strong data analysis background, you'll be familiar with coding languages (including Python, SQL, JAVA and Hadoop) and use them alongside specialist data manipulation techniques. With your knowledge of networking technologies and machine learning you'll mentor the team and ensure they meet demanding delivery expectations.
To apply to MI6 you must be a born or naturalised British citizen, over 21 years old and normally have been based in the UK for six of the last ten years. You should not discuss your application with anyone other than your partner or a close family member providing that they are British. They should also be made aware of the importance of discretion.
MI6 strives for diversity in the workplace and is committed to the creation and maintenance of a climate in which all staff are treated fairly on the grounds of merit and ability.
