Rare Languages Registration of Interest Ref.851
GCHQ employs highly-skilled Language Analysts in a wide range of languages and will soon be looking to recruit in Punjabi, Persian, Turkish, Swahili, Mirpuri, Hindi, Bengali, Sylheti and any dialect of Arabic. We welcome people from a diverse range of backgrounds and cultures who bring with them the breadth of skills and experience that we need. An in-depth knowledge and understanding of a variety of communities and languages isn’t just an advantage, it is crucial for our work. We would love to hear from you if you have native speaker capability or graduate-level knowledge of one or more of the above languages (however, please note that graduates in Arabic should apply via our Arabic graduate-level entry scheme when this opens for applications). No formal qualification in the language is required, but you must have the ability to write in clear fluent English.
We will be looking for well-motivated people who are happy to work in a constantly changing technological environment and who have drive, initiative, perseverance and a naturally enquiring mind that is capable of looking beyond the obvious.
