Flourish next summer at GCHQ

At GCHQ, we work closely with other intelligence agencies to keep the nation safe. We work against unique, complex threats – everything from cyber-attacks and espionage, to terror plots and serious organised crime. It means your work will be incredibly interesting, and unlike anything you’ll find anywhere else. On our Student Scheme for Technologists (SST), you’ll grow your technology skills and help to keep our nation safe.

This is an exciting opportunity to join one of our Technology areas for a paid 11-week summer placement or a year in industry placement. Learning through valuable, hands-on experience, you’ll work on real-life projects to safeguard national security. With opportunities in areas from Computer Network Operations to Research and Engineering, there’s a huge range of roles and scope for people from all walks of life. Whatever your role, you’ll be supporting our cyber capabilities alongside the country’s finest minds. It’s a fascinating and rewarding insight into a highly innovative world.

You’ll keep up with ever-evolving technologies that will have a positive impact on our work. You should be a natural problem solver who can cope with complex coding and internet communications protocols. Up-to-speed with programming for different operating systems, you’ll be studying a STEM subject (or a Joint Honours degree) and on track for at least a 2:2. You should be set to graduate in either 2020 or 2021.

Join us in a supportive, collaborative environment where there’s the scope to do things that aren’t possible elsewhere.
