“There’s a family feel here, close-knit community. It’s not all just about the tech, some of the most important teams are in administrative roles. The support function is really important to us. If you’re not a technologist but you want to work towards the same mission, there’s a place for you. If you want to develop you can. Nowhere better to learn.”
Protecting the nation takes people who are as individual as our technologies are unique.
At GCHQ, our mission is to protect Britain from ever-evolving threats. It’s incredibly varied work as the UK’s infrastructure, businesses and way of life are constantly targeted. By gathering information and looking into communications, our organisation aims to stop this. It means you’ll have one of the most unique and interesting careers there is to offer.
That’s why we offer a wide range of roles – specialist, technical, analysts, as well as more general roles (IT, project management, finance, leadership, language opportunities). To do our job – which involves solving some of the most complex technology problems the world faces – we need all talents and we need people who dare to think differently.
Most employees start out at our Headquarters in Cheltenham, but we also have offices in London, Bude, Scarborough, Harrogate, Lincolnshire and Manchester.
We recruit graduates from a variety of degree disciplines, into a number of areas, including Intelligence Analysts, Technology & Engineering, Maths & Cryptography, Languages Analysts, Project Management, Finance, Leadership and others.
Look out for our CyberFirst Apprenticeship, Languages and Maths Summer placements opportunities in the Autumn. We even offer CyberFirst Bursary for those of you who are studying a STEM subject at Uni. At GCHQ, you won’t just be discovering innovative ways of using advanced technologies. You’ll be taking responsibilities, developing new skills and ultimately, protecting your country.
We welcome applications from everyone – regardless of age, experience, cultural background or sexual orientation. The nature of our work means that we have strict nationality, residency and security requirements. You need to be a British citizen and have lived in the UK for the majority of the last ten years. Our rigorous, but fair, vetting process will look into your character, family history and personal circumstances. It’s a thorough process that can take up to nine months and you must be over 18 to complete it. We’re also a Disability Confident employer, dedicated to providing guaranteed interviews to all disabled candidates who meet our minimum criteria.
