This is just one of a number of opportunities currently advertised on the MI5 Current Job Openings – including positions for linguists, finance and in procurement.

The Intelligence Officer Development Programme is open to all degree disciplines (minimum 2:2 requirement) for born or naturalised British citizens, over 18 years of age and who have normally lived in the UK for nine of the last ten years. Full details of how to apply are online: see IODP Ref 1161. The following is taken from the advertisement:

The Development Programme

Our Intelligence Officer Development Programme will help you to develop the skills you need to lead investigations in MI5, whilst you work in roles which directly support investigations. On this structured development programme, you could spend your first two years in roles such as:

  • Digital Intelligence – where you’ll further investigations by analysing and assessing information gained through interception.
  • Warrantry – a vital role that involves preparing warrants, ensuring they meet the appropriate legislative criteria before they’re sent to the Home Secretary for approval.
  • Legal Casework – this role could involve delivering and maintaining disruptive actions against key subjects of interest, which have a significant impact on their ability to engage in activities of national security concern.

Heritage: ‘Moving, teaching, inspiring’ series

Posted on behalf of TORCH and the National Trust. Blogged by Hugh Nicholson-Lailey on June 23, 2017.

The Humanities Division at Oxford has developed an exciting relationship with the National Trust, culminating in the Trusted Source Knowledge Transfer Partnership. To celebrate this close collaboration, the TORCH/National Trust interdisciplinary lecture series explores and interrogates the many challenges and opportunities facing the higher education and heritage sectors in the 21st century, from caring for collections and landscapes, to gaining support through brand and marketing.

The lecture series offers a fantastic introduction to the strategic challenges and opportunities faced by the heritage sector and insights from the most senior levels into the strategies developed and implemented to achieve a sustainable, relevant and vibrant heritage sector that is reaching and engaging new audiences and influencing society and policy alike.

Videos of the first five lectures and Q&A discussions featuring leading speakers from both the National Trust and our University are now online on Oxford’s Podcast webpages.
