Your business analysis expertise has helped you to shape organisations. To drive profits. To create savings. But what if you could use that expertise to protect UK lives – all 63.7 million of them?

At MI5, that’s the bottom line: everything we do – every piece of technology we invest in and every change project we undertake – is about protecting the nation. So for you, the challenges couldn’t be more complex, or more interesting. You’ll be tasked with identifying our business needs (which are far from conventional) and translating them into groundbreaking technical solutions. We’ll rely on your advice when it comes to driving through large-scale transformations, and your strategic thinking will be pivotal to multiple, business-critical projects.

You can expect to manage and develop your own team too, giving you an even broader influence on the way we work. And we’ll take your own development just as seriously – you can look forward to ongoing training and the chance to gain industry qualifications.

A natural leader with a strategic approach, you have a proven track record in business analysis and of heading up both IT and non-IT related projects. Essentially, you’ll be the bridge between our IT team and the wider business, so gravitas, poise and a natural ability to influence others are all a must. We’ll also need to see:

  • Experience of business process improvement – probably gained in a similarly large organisation
  • A sound understanding of business process mapping and needs analysis
  • Strong business and benefits modelling skills
  • Change management experience

If you have all of that, this is an opportunity to take the lead on some truly unique projects – projects that won’t just have an impact on our organisation, but that will have an impact on the nation.                                                                      

To apply to MI5 you must be a born or naturalised British citizen, over 18 years old 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.
