If you fancy yourself as a bit of a spook then MI5 have developed a challenge to help you to assess your use of information and analytical skills. The Investigative Challenge has been designed to give you a greater understanding of whether you would enjoy and be well-suited to the MI5 Intelligence Officer role.
The challenge should take you approximately 15 minutes to complete. You will be confronted with the sort of scenario faced by desk officers every day.
In this case, a number of known foreign spies working in London have been ordered home with immediate effect, and in suspicious circumstances. MI5 is seeking to find out why and if there is any potential threat to Britain’s interests. You are provided with case files on two of the agents, information from an undercover agent and newspaper and police reports. At the end, there are four question to answer – worth a maximum of eight points.
If you complete the case successfully then you never know, you may have just qualified as next George Smiley!
You can take the assessment here.
