At GCHQ, we unlock the complex world of communications to keep our nation safe. Collaborating closely with Britain’s other intelligence agencies, we safeguard Britain’s people, interests and businesses from various threats. Think terror plots, cyber-attacks and criminal threats.
It’s varied and meaningful work that you simply won’t find anywhere else.
Our mission -
The internet is a part of everybody’s lives. But while it benefits millions of people, it also increases the threats we all face.
Our Mission is to keep Britain safe. We bring intelligence and technology together to counter increasingly sophisticated threats. GCHQ intelligence helps keep our forces safe, prevents terrorism and crime and protects against cyber attack.
It takes all sorts of different people in different roles to help us to do that. Some are linguists; others are mathematicians. Some work in cryptography; others in project management. Some have PhDs, others have A-levels. Some of them have worked in this field before; others haven’t come close. Put simply, everyone here is different. What unites us is our dedication to providing intelligence, protecting information and informing relevant policy to keep UK society safe, secure and successful.
With your talent, we can flourish and protect the UK.
Please note that due to the sensitive nature of our work, applicants must be British citizens.
