There are a wide variety of Business change and Business Analyst roles within MI6 – or as we’re more formally called, The Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), which offer opportunities to develop your skills in a truly unique context. Working alongside Business Change Managers and Business Analysts, you will help promote and protect the UK’s national interests both at home and overseas.
About the role
Business Change and Business Analysis are key skillsets in SIS. They are a key enabler for changing the way we work to make us more efficient and effective, and to keep us ahead of those who seek to do harm to our country and our citizens, wherever they are in the world. Our Entry Level Change Analysts play a unique and vital role in optimising the way SIS operates as a global intelligence service in the 21st century.
If you have a real passion for delivering change, and want to develop your Business Analysis/ Business Change career in a unique and challenging environment, this is your chance to join us. As part of an innovative, forward-thinking team that’s continuously developing new ways of working, you’ll make sure MI6 has the ability to perform its mission to the very highest level. As an Entry Level Change Analyst you will follow a Business Analysis or a Business Change development programme through a combination of internal and external training, whilst working alongside experienced senior colleagues. This will enable you to support both business as usual, and our transformation programmes by undertaking a range of tasks including requirements elicitation and analysis, business process modelling and change implementation planning and management.
• Ideally, you’ll be able to demonstrate 2 or more years’ recent experience of working in a change, project or analysis related role.
• You will be able to demonstrate understanding of change lifecycles principles, and have some experience of applying them in a project or business context.
• You will be able to demonstrate effective written and verbal communication skills.
• You will have good working knowledge of a diagramming and/or modelling tool (e.g. Microsoft Visio).
What we can offer candidates
The role will require the candidate to work to professional qualifications in addition to the training and support provided on the job. The training package is flexible depending on the previous experience of the individual and the needs of the Service.
MI6 simply could not operate without our talented multi-disciplinary teams. We exist to collect Britain’s foreign intelligence that helps protect the UK’s security and prosperity. This secret intelligence is gathered all over the world and reported to the Government — informing policies that counter threats to our country including terrorism, regional instability and weapons proliferation. Join us and you’ll receive a full induction into SIS before joining our established Analysis and Change team. Following this, we’ll help you develop your skills with individually tailored training to make the most of your talents and interests. Depending on how your career with us progresses, there will be a range of opportunities for you to explore, including membership of professional bodies.
