Working for us

HQ from vauxhall bridge

We are SIS, or the Secret Intelligence Service. You may know us as MI6. We operate world-wide to collect secret foreign intelligence to protect the security and economic well-being of the United Kingdom.

Regional instability, terrorism and the proliferation of weapons are some of the major challenges facing the world in the 21st Century. At MI6, we help make sure the Government has the right information to counter these threats effectively. Join us, and you'll play a vital role in supporting this work.

Our Headquarters are in Vauxhall, London. We also have people stationed across the globe so we can offer our staff opportunities to develop their careers both in the UK and abroad, depending on the type of role they're performing.

We are currently advertising a range of roles so we would invite you to browse our pages to identify a role that suits your skills and experience.  We have strict entry criteria, so please do ensure you meet this before submitting an application.  Existing civil servants are advised to visit the Civil Service Gateway website to view any current secondment opportunities.

All candidates should launch their applications via the website from within the UK. Those based overseas must wait until they visit the UK before launching an application.  Applying from outside the UK will impact on our ability to progress your application.
