This is a position where you'll be able to contribute to the effective running of the Service - and as a result the security of the UK.  Although you will be based in London, you'll also be working in other parts of the UK, and there will, in time, be extensive opportunities to work overseas.  Furthermore, we'll give you the chance to tackle a diverse range of systems, including:
