GCHQ is a world-leading intelligence, security and cyber agency with a mission to help keep the UK safe. Our brilliant people use cutting-edge technology and technical ingenuity to identify, analyse and disrupt threats in an increasingly digital world.
In the UK we work closely with MI5, MI6, law enforcement and the military to protect the country from terrorism, hostile state activity and serious and organised crime. The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) which is part of GCHQ, aims to make the UK the safest place in the world to live and do business online. We also work closely with our partners in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, which form the 5EYES intelligence alliance on global issues.
It takes all sorts of people in different roles to deliver our mission. Whether you’re an engineer or can speak a language, have a PhD in computer science or have come straight from school and want to be an apprentice, there is a career for you at GCHQ. The one quality we ask for in everyone is a commitment to keeping the UK safe.
