MI5 advertises in the Times Educational Supplement for recruits

Now pay attention schoolteachers: your country needs you.

The British Security Service MI5 is seeking to recruit teachers to serve as intelligence officers in the fight against terrorism, espionage and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

Where once the service recruited Oxbridge graduates via a meticulously planned tap on the shoulder and ex-SAS men via shady meetings on shady park benches, MI5’s HR department has lately looked elsewhere for its operatives.

Lawyers and former City workers have been screened and assimilated into the service. Personnel chiefs now appear to believe that anyone who can survive double geography on a Friday afternoon will prove useful in the fight to uphold national security. They have placed an advert in the TES in an attempt to lure the finest men and women from British common rooms to serve Queen and country.
