We care about the well-being of our staff. Our Well-being team brings together expertise on health and safety, occupational health and welfare. Our priorities in this area are:

  • Promoting health and well-being
  • Keeping staff safe - at home and overseas
  • Supporting staff in times of need
  • Staying in touch with the wider SIS family (members of staff, former members of staff and their families).

We offer staff a range of well-being initiatives, including occupational health support, lifestyle activities and access to counsellors.

Our diverse interests and enthusiasms are represented in the many in-house networked groups, clubs and societies.

Support from counsellors

Any member of staff needing confidential support may consult an in-house personal or financial counsellor.

Any member of staff may consult the Staff Counsellor to the Intelligence Agencies, Desmond Bowen. He is appointed by the Prime Minister as a point of contact for any members of the security and intelligence agencies who have anxieties relating to the work of their Service which it has not been possible to allay through the ordinary processes of management or staff relations.
