Intelligence & Data Analyst Development Programme Registration of Interest Ref. 2534
We are MI5, our mission is to keep the UK safe. MI5 protects our national security from threats such as terrorism and espionage. Our operations are hugely varied, which is why increasing the diversity of our people is needed more than ever before.
To protect the UK, we need people with different perspectives and backgrounds. There’s no one ‘type’ of person we recruit. You don’t need to have coding or programming skills, but you’ll have some experience analysing data and will be keen to develop your abilities further with our support and training. You’ll have (or be expecting) a 2:2 degree in any subject, or have relevant work experience.
Relying on data, our Intelligence Analyst’s play a crucial role in keeping the country safe. It can be complex, but understanding it is key to the success of our operations. And if you think you know what sort of person works in data, think again. On our Intelligence and Data Analyst Development Programme, you’ll see you don’t need to be a data expert to help protect the UK - just yourself.
The programme begins with a 4-month training period, where you’ll learn more about the organisation and our processes. Then, you’ll do 3 different analyst postings right in the heart of MI5. Over the course of 5 years and beyond, you’ll develop your technical skills, work with tools that can’t be found anywhere else, and gain experience to support a fulfilling and rewarding career in analysis.

The application window for the Intelligence and Data Analyst Programme will open on 30th May 2022. In the meantime, we are looking for individuals who are from an Ethnic Minority background*, to register their interest in this forthcoming opportunity. As part of the registration of interest, you will be invited to an online chat session prior to the campaign opening.
Please note that a registration of interest does not constitute a job application, nor will such registration have any bearing upon the recruitment process itself. Any individuals who register their interest and who decide subsequently to apply to the Intelligence and Data Analyst Development Programme, will need to complete an application form once the window for applications has opened.
* We are confining registrations of interest to those from an Ethnic Minority background only, due to their current under-representation in our workforce. Once the application window has opened, we will welcome applications from all candidates, regardless of their ethnic background, gender, disability and/or any other characteristic(s). All applications will be assessed solely on merit.
