Mandarin Chinese Language Opportunities at GCHQ

Where: United Kingdom

Deadline: July 17, 2019

Type: Graduate

View more

About the Company:

Main business: : Defence, public protection and security

GCHQ are a secret intelligence and security organisation, which gathers and analyses digital and electronic signals from many channels across the world. This information is then converted into intelligence, which helps to inform national security, military operations, police activity and foreign policy to tackle ever evolving global threats.

About the Role:

Your knowledge of Mandarin could open up a fascinating career in intelligence. By joining MI5, MI6 or GCHQ, you can play your part in protecting the UK and its interests.

Job description

We are looking for Mandarin linguists for roles that will go well beyond translation and transcription. It takes knowledge of the culture, history, politics and ideology to fully understand the original idea. And if you can do that, you can enable MI5, MI6 or GCHQ to make the right choices to help safeguard national security.

It’s genuinely interesting work that will test your judgement, your people skills and your linguistic ability every day.

The roles

You’ll be using your language skills to provide intelligence insights, working at the core of our operational teams and you will work with a range of government departments.

At MI5, you’ll carry out core language analysis work in support of investigations and develop your own career path focusing on the areas that most interest you, be it assessments, investigations or agent running. We have opportunities for promotion within the team, leading to more strategic understanding of the work we do and mentoring of junior colleagues. There are opportunities to develop your language skills.

At MI6, you’ll work as an integral part of an operational team, sifting Mandarin language material against customer requirements to identify reportable intelligence that will shape and influence the team’s operational decision-making. You may have the opportunity to become a subject specialist, train in interpreting or learn new languages. Later, you may earn promotion as a linguist or branch into a different role in the organisation. Whatever your career path, you will be part of a community of dedicated and talented linguists, working together on projects that really make a difference.

At GCHQ, you will be the first line of assessment of the intelligence value of Mandarin language material which may include highly technical and specialist terminology. However, you don’t need to already be technically experienced as full training will be given. GCHQ has a large language community and there are opportunities to progress to senior language positions which have greater or broader responsibility.
