GCHQ is an intelligence, cyber and security agency with a mission to keep the UK safe. We use cutting-edge technology, ingenuity, and partnerships to identify, analyse and disrupt threats. Working with our intelligence partners MI5 and MI6, we protect the UK from terrorism, cyber-attacks, and espionage. At GCHQ, you’ll do varied and fascinating work in a supportive and inclusive environment that puts the emphasis on teamwork. 

As an Infrastructure Engineer/Infrastructure Engineering Specialist you’ll work with a range of unique technologies and develop new capabilities that enable us to keep the country safe. Whether you’re developing cloud native technologies, deploying applications, or identifying innovation that shapes the way we work, you’ll play a key part in our operations. And, with bespoke technologies protected by strict legal safeguards and oversights, we have the scope to do things that wouldn’t be possible elsewhere. 

We’re keen to recruit individuals with an aptitude for technology as well as those with experience. You’ll receive dedicated training tailored to you and even have opportunities to pursue formal qualifications, while enjoying a great work-life balance, including the options of compressed or part-time hours.
