The Development Programme
Our Intelligence Officer Development Programme will help you to develop the skills you need to lead investigations in MI5, whilst you work in roles which directly support investigations. On this structured development programme, you could spend your first two years in roles such as:
- Digital Intelligence – where you’ll further investigations by analysing and assessing information gained through interception.
- Warrantry – a vital role that involves preparing warrants, ensuring they meet the appropriate legislative criteria before they’re sent to the Home Secretary for approval.
- Legal Casework – this role could involve delivering and maintaining disruptive actions against key subjects of interest, which have a significant impact on their ability to engage in activities of national security concern.
