GCHQ (Government Communications Headquarters) is one of the UK’s three intelligence services (along with MI5 and MI6). Using some of the world’s most sophisticated technology, we intercept communications and electronic signals from our headquarters in Cheltenham. This information is then turned into intelligence, which helps our government protect the UK, its people and institutions from range of terrorist and criminal threats.
GCHQ values diversity and welcomes applicants from all sections of the community.
We want our workforce to reflect the diversity of our work. Applicants must be British Citizens.
