Job description

Tech Internship

This is a unique opportunity to improve your technical and analytical skills on an 11-week paid summer internship; you will be working on live projects which will help keep the UK safe. Technology is at the heart of everything we do at MI5. You’ll be working with – and learning from – experienced and pioneering technical teams, often on projects you won’t find anywhere else. By the end of your internship, you’ll have had a direct and rewarding impact on how we use technology to protect the UK from serious security threats. You’ll be based in one of five technical areas:

•    Business Analysis
•    Covert Technical Operations
•    Information Architecture
•    UX Design
•    Software Engineering

Combining problem-solving skills with an aptitude for working with technology, you’ll also be able to explain technical concepts clearly to different audiences. In some areas you’ll need basic coding skills, while in others your logical approach, interest in data flows, or knowledge of computer security or computer forensics will be more important. With basic computer skills, you’ll be comfortable working at a computer for long periods and handling a range of written, numerical, image-based and audio data.

You must be in your penultimate year of University and be expecting to receive at least 2:2 degree or equivalent in a technology or wider STEM-related subject by autumn 2023. You should also be available to start permanent employment in autumn 2023 if you wish to progress to our Technology Graduate Development Programme. For the duration of the internship you must be able to live in or commute to central London.

The application window for the Tech Internship will open on 13th September 2021. In the meantime, we encourage:

·         All those from a Black, Asian or minority ethnic background *
·         Women (of any background) *

To register their interest in this forthcoming opportunity

*Please note that we are confining registrations of interest to the above groups only, due to their current under-representation in our workforce.

A registration of interest does not constitute a job application, nor will such registration have any bearing upon the recruitment process itself.

Any individuals who register their interest and who decide subsequently to apply for the Tech Internship will need to complete an application form once the window for applications has opened.

Once the application window has opened, we will welcome applications from all candidates, regardless of their ethnic background, gender, disability and/or any other characteristic(s).  All applications will be assessed solely on merit.
