You’ll influence the future of communications.

And protect the future of Britain.

GCHQ is amongst the world’s foremost intelligence agencies. A centre of excellence, our mission is to use cutting-edge tech to protect Britain from ever-evolving cyber threats. By gathering information and analysing communications, we ensure that IT networks, systems and data are secure across the country. It’s varied and challenging work, as terrorists increasingly target our infrastructure, businesses and our way of life.

We’re now looking for talented individuals to join our station in Bude as Communications Systems Analysts. Using different computer operating systems and programming languages, you’ll analyse complex data, communication systems and technologies. With an innovative mindset, you’ll use world-class tech to solve problems. These might be quickly scripted prototypes or fully engineered, unique solutions.

To join us, you’ll need a minimum of five GCSEs, grade A-C (including maths and English). Enthusiastic, curious and proactive, you’ll have an interest in tech and be a natural problem-solver. With excellent communication skills, you’ll collaborate with both technical and non-technical colleagues.
