Your attention to detail will help us build a clearer picture.

At MI5, you can build a career doing what matters: stopping threats and preventing harm. It's our mission to tackle threats, from terrorism and espionage, to cyber threats and sabotage - a complex yet fascinating task. It's also one that takes all kinds of people, with different perspectives and skills. As a Foundation Analyst, you'll be part of a supportive team, helping to protect the people and places you love.

Our Foundation Analysts work with and assess a variety of data, from audio files, to written communications. The details you find will help us to successfully shape investigations. It's incredibly interesting work that has a real impact.

But you'll never do it alone. You'll work together with other analysts to find answers to questions which will help move our investigations forward. And you'll collaborate with other teams to determine exactly what you're looking for and the data you need to analyse. It means you'll have a clear focus and know which tasks to tackle first. Using your communication skills, you'll share your progress and explain your findings in a clear and logical way.   

We're not looking for experts - we're looking for potential. So you don't need a degree or experience in analysis. You will need to be curious, proactive and a team player. You'll also be keen to learn and develop and help us find the answers. Your flexibility and motivation will help you to adapt to changing situations and complete tasks efficiently.

Throughout the programme, we'll give you the right support and resources to develop your skills. This will include specific training on how to analyse different types of data. The programme will give you the time to learn everything and then put it into practice, before moving onto the next stage. So, with a passion for learning and keeping communities safe, we'll teach you everything there is to know. 

Help us build a clear picture, while you build a rewarding career.
