At MI6 (or SIS, as we're more formally known) we do vital work.
We collect intelligence from around the world to help protect the
UK against a range of threats from terrorism to regional
instability. Behind this work you will find our support teams. All
of them are essential to the smooth running of the organisation.
Thanks to their high standards and professionalism, we are able to
concentrate on the work we do that ensures the security and
prosperity of the UK. The following roles are only open to British
citizens and are based in central London. Some paid overtime may
occasionally be required for some positions.
Facilities Assistants - £19,621 + £2,600 local pay
The role is London based
Our Facilities Assistants need to be able to turn their hand to
anything from mail room duties to cleaning, painting, gardening and
building maintenance. Whether you're preparing meeting rooms or
laying carpet, portering or facilitating office moves, your can-do
attitude will make you invaluable. Ideally you are already working
as a Facilities or Estates Assistant.
This is a physical job, so you'll have to be able to undertake
vigorous tasks like moving furniture. You must have a full, clean
driving licence - basic IT skills are also important. Ideally,
you'll also have a forklift licence and a PASMA scaffolding
certificate. If not, you'll need to be willing to go on a course to
achieve them. Highly motivated and team spirited, you're always
ready to lend a hand no matter how busy it gets.
Before you apply
MI6 offers an excellent working environment, with great benefits
including 25 days' holiday and a good pension. However, applying to
join us is a complex process that may take up to six months. We
need to carry out in-depth background and security checks before we
recruit anyone - an extremely important task which can take some
time. Before applying, please make sure that you have checked that
you have the skills and experience required. It's also essential
that you feel strongly about helping to protect your country and
are committed to being discreet about your work. Remember, you must
be a British national aged 21 or over and you will be required to
undergo advanced security checks, including medical and drugs
