You wouldn’t be able to afford as many suits as Bond, with a salary of £24,750 (but thank god for H&M).
The advert says they’re looking for someone “analytical and highly organised, you will have a superb eye for detail, and the perfect balance of sensitivity and confidence. Discretion and integrity are also crucial qualities.”
And you’ve got to be able to keep schtum too, to get yourself a role at MI5 – applicants are only allowed to discuss their application with a partner or close family member.
Applicants also need to be British citizens, have at least one British parent with a substantial tie to the UK and have been living in the UK for 9 of the last 10 years.
The UK government has been stepping up security in the lead up to the games in case of terror attacks.
They’ve drafted in hundreds of old MI5 spooks to help and cancelled 4,000 secret service workers holiday during the two months running up to the Games. But they need more.
So if you fancy your chances working as a spy at Blighty’s most crucial hour, apply at mi5.gov.uk/careers.
