At MI5, MI6 and GCHQ, we work against serious threats like cyber-attacks, terrorism and espionage. To protect the UK, we rely on a diverse and talented team.

Join our Trainee Finance Officer Scheme and you and your skills will play a hugely important role behind the scenes, ensuring resources are effectively managed to deliver operations.

Over three years, you’ll study for an Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) qualification while taking on several different roles. But you won’t do it alone.

With a team of other trainees, a dedicated mentor and a ‘buddy’ with experience of studying the AAT, you’ll have great support from day one.

When you’re not working at the agencies, you’ll spend one day a week at college with the other trainees.

Whoever you are, whatever your background, you’ll contribute to a safer nation.

The application window for the Trainee Finance Officer Scheme will open on Monday 4th October 2021. In the meantime, we encourage:

All those from a Black, Asian or minority ethnic background*

To register their interest in this forthcoming opportunity. As part of the registration of interest, you will be invited to an online event prior to the campaign opening to explain the role of a Trainee Finance Officer in more detail and provide more insight into working at our unique organisations. Depending upon the level of interest, we may also offer a second session.  We will be inviting people on a first come first served basis, so sign up now to avoid missing out on hearing what it’s like to work for our organisations as a Trainee Finance Officer.

*Please note that we are confining registrations of interest to the above groups only, due to their current under-representation in our workforce.

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 for the Trainee Finance Officer Scheme, will need to complete an application form once the window for applications has opened.

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.
