This is an exciting opportunity to be part of MI5 and work on live projects that will help to keep the country safe.

Technology is at the heart of everything we do. 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, not only will you have improved your technical and analytical skills, but you will 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 four technical areas:

  • Business analysis
  • Covert technical operations
  • Information architecture
  • Software engineering

Combining problem-solving skills with an aptitude for working with technology, you’ll be a confident communicator, with the ability 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.
The internship will run from late June 2019 for 11 weeks.

What we are looking for

We particularly welcome applications from women and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic candidates.

To apply to MI5 you must be a born or naturalised British citizen, over 18 years of age and normally have lived in the UK for nine of the last ten years. You should not discuss your application, other than with your partner or a close family member, providing that they are British. They should also be made aware of the importance of discretion.


You will be expecting to receive at least a 2:2 degree or equivalent in a technology or wider STEM-related subject by autumn 2020. You should also be available to start permanent employment in autumn 2020. For the duration of the internship you must be able to live in or commute to central London.
