Naturally curious? Spot things others miss? Then a job as a Trainee Intelligence Analyst could be the perfect role for you. As a full-time Trainee Intelligence Analyst, you’ll collect information that could be vital to operations – and could save lives. To get it, you need to speak to local people, look at pictures from satellites and spy planes and listen to radio messages – spotting and responding to security threats without blowing your cover. You’ll then present what you find to commanders, intelligence services and government leaders, helping them to keep our nation safe from sabotage and terrorism. It’s your chance to reach heights you never knew existed and learn vital skills that’ll set you up for life. To build bonds that’ll never break and do things you never thought possible.
Working in intelligence is a big job, with a lot of responsibility. But this is your chance to do something that really matters.
Find where you belong.
