MI5 NAMED IN TOP 10 GRADUATE EMPLOYERS
MI5 have been named in the top 10 of the Guardian UK300 Top Graduate Employers list.
The list, which is compiled annually following an independent survey of students across the UK, sees MI5 rise to seventh place; an improvement on last year’s placement of eleventh.
An MI5 recruitment manager said:
“We are immensely proud to be recognised as one of the country’s leading employers and honoured that students and graduates view us as a positive place to pursue a unique and rewarding career.”
Our sister intelligence agencies GCHQ and SIS also featured in the list, showing a career in British intelligence is increasingly attractive to people who want to keep the country safe.
The Guardian UK300 rankings are based on the largest independent survey of students in the UK, conducted by research institute trendence. More than 52,000 students from 120 universities voted between August 2015 and January 2016, making this the largest and most comprehensive student poll of its kind. 100,000 copies of the Guardian UK300 will be distributed to the best universities in the UK in September 2016.
This achievement comes on top of a recent award from Stonewall (1st place in the annual Stonewall Workplace Equality Index) and recognition of our status as a leader in gender equality in The Times Top 50 Employers for Women 2016.
