Looking for a new challenge?

We are MI6, also know as the Secret Intelligence Service.

We work secretly around the world gathering intelligence to promote and protect the UK’s interests and stay ahead of our adversaries. We have rewarding careers that rely on people with diverse backgrounds, skills and perspectives. If you want to live overseas, are interested in different cultures, enjoy working with others and building successful relationships, then we have a number of exciting roles that may suit you.

We are looking for people with around 5-10 years of experience from a wide range of backgrounds and industries. If you are inspired by the challenge, please do not self-censor. A tailored training programme will harness your skills and experience, enabling you to directly support the intelligence capability of the UK.

To work for MI6 you must be a British citizen or hold dual British nationality and have been resident in the UK for ideally 7 of the last 10 years.

To find out more, please send your CV and covering letter to: Recruitment Department, PO Box 80852, London N1P 3UA

Please do not disclose to anyone that you have contacted MI6. Doing so may mean that we cannot progress your application. Candidates will have to pass a vetting process.


We are SIS – the UK’s Secret Intelligence Service - also known as MI6. Our people work secretly around the world to make the UK safer and more prosperous. For over 100 years SIS has ensured the UK and our allies keep one step ahead of our adversaries. We are creative and determined - using cutting-edge technology and espionage.

We have three core aims: stopping terrorism, disrupting the activity of hostile states, and giving the UK a cyber advantage.

We work closely with MI5, GCHQ, HM Armed Forces, law enforcement and a range of other international partners. Everything we do is tasked and authorised by senior government ministers and overseen by Parliament and independent judges. People who work for MI6 come from all walks of life, with different skills, interests and backgrounds.

MI6 is an organisation where integrity, courage and respect are central to what we do. We encourage and admire difference. Many MI6 staff are based overseas while others work from our headquarters in Vauxhall, London. Although our work is secret, everything we do is legal and is underpinned by the values that define the UK.

We’re #secretlyjustlikeyou.
