Where being a lawyer,

Helps protect the nation.

At MI6, the threats we face are ever-evolving. We operate globally, keeping the UK safe. So in this unpredictable world, we need the country’s finest legal minds. People who want a career with a real purpose, that challenges them every day.


In this small, specialist team you’ll work with like-minded individuals, providing expert advice across public sector employment, PI and commercial legal matters. The focus may be on employment law but you’ll also deal with a variety of corporate issues, and readily respond to any other emerging situations.  


It’s about confident independent working, while also being a team player with strong communication skills. Proactive and conscientious, you’ll handle complex queries with ease and authority. Plus, with a credibility that inspires trust and support from your colleagues, your decision-making will be both informed and collaborative.


To join us, you’ll be degree-qualified with sound PQE experience from a leading city, national or regional law firm. Employment law experience is essential, while having a background in handling personal injury litigation would be an advantage. Above all, you’ll enjoy applying your skills and expertise for one, single reason: protecting the nation.
