Never underestimate the impact of data.
This isn’t your average data analysis role. This is a role where your analysis can really make a difference. MI5 is responsible for helping to safeguard the UK from threats to our nation’s security such as terrorism, espionage and cyber attack. You could be part of this.
As an Intelligence Analyst you’ll work closely with teams of investigators, using a variety of analytical tools and software to assess data, identify connections and make recommendations.
We’re not asking for specific experience, but we do expect you to have excellent analytical skills, and an advanced knowledge of data analysis packages such as Excel and SPSS. It goes without saying that you’ll need a passion for data in this role.
Confident, articulate and capable, you’re comfortable presenting complex information clearly to colleagues from a non-technical background. You’ll need to be a team player who is also prepared to work autonomously on your own analysis to help drive an investigation forward.
Proactive and creative when faced with analytical challenges, you aren’t afraid to challenge tried and tested methodologies to get maximum value from the data available. You’re also happy to use your skills and knowledge to help your team make vital links between different strands of an investigation.
It’s a constantly changing environment, which means you’ll have plenty of scope to apply your talents, whether on project work or to devise new approaches, tools and techniques.
As an Intelligence Analyst at MI5 your expertise could help us make crucial breakthroughs on investigations – one of the most rewarding aspects of the role.
