Secret Intelligence Service is recruiting across all roles in its workforce. The agency has always attracted talent. But in order to remain one of the best intelligence services in the world, SIS needs to harness talent from the widest possible range of backgrounds.

On Thursday 24 May, SIS launches their first television advert, #secretlywerejustlikeyou.  It will broadcast during the Channel 4 evening news. The advert looks to dispel some misconceptions of the Service. Provide viewers with an understanding of the skills required to be an Intelligence Officer.

SIS was recently listed in the Times Top 50 Employers for Women and in the Top 100 Race Employer.   In the Guardian 300 this year SIS were ranked the 4th most popular graduate recruiter.  Overall by gender, ethnicity and by socio-economic background.
