My life as an Intelligence
Analyst (Linguist)

  +

‘I never wanted a nine-to-five job and I like knowing that what I do really matters. Because of my language skill, I was deployed overseas during recent operations. My role was to screen radio communications and highlight anything that was of intelligence interest. Being on operation was an amazing experience – we all slept in tents and lived out of our kit bags. I like that I constantly develop my skills and that after initial training, we go back quite frequently for further language study.’
