Manchester: GCHQ, "Be an Intelligence Analyst for a day" In person event
This event is for: Year 12 and13, college and gap year students interested in a career as an Analyst at GCHQ and looking at Early Careers programmes.
Please read the information on Analyst roles below and be aware that GCHQ are running future events in June, focused on roles in Cyber and in October, focused on the role of a Software Engineer - apply for the event that best matches your interests and skills.
The Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) is one of the three UK Intelligence and Security Agencies, along with MI5 and the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6). Their mission is to keep Britain safe.
By joining this Work Experience Day, you'll learn how the people at GCHQ keep our forces safe, prevent terrorism and crime, and protect against cyber-attacks and the role analysts play in this.
Being an analyst is all about solving problems. Curious and methodical, our analysts get to grips with lots of data, make things easier to understand and produce insightful reports. These reports often shape foreign policy and national security. And because the threats we face are constantly changing, there’s always something new to tackle.
