IT Careers at GCHQ
Find out more about a career at one of Gloucestershire’s major employers with the extensive career and recruitment section of the Government Communications Headquarters website. The site describes the large range of IT personnel employed under its two main branches of Signals Intelligence and Information Assurance. Many case studies of successful recruits are offered in sections such as cyber security specialists.
A recent electronic and computer engineering graduate describes the importance of his work. “What we contribute to is fascinating and ever changing, so we are always evolving in order to stay one step ahead,” he says. The site explains that it employs 1500 staff in IT roles and is home to ‘some of Europe’s most powerful computers’.
