We welcome applications from individuals at all career stages and from any sector. We recruit staff through open, competitive processes and support them through the security vetting and onboarding process.

Recruitment process

We have a two-stage recruitment process. The first stage is job-specific where your skills, experience and abilities are measured against the job requirement. The second stage is security vetting, where we assess your eligibility and suitability for a security clearance. 

You will not receive an offer of employment until you have completed both stages. The complete selection process – from advertising to employment – usually takes between 8 and 12 months.

Reasonable adjustments and accessibility 

To ensure you can equitably and fully compete in recruitment processes, you can seek reasonable adjustments through the recruitment process. That is, assistance or adjustments that are both reasonable and reasonably practicable, to remove barriers and make the process accessible. Reasonable adjustments may be applied at any stage of the recruitment process.

You can seek reasonable adjustments on your application form. All requests will be managed sensitively and confidentially.

If you accept a role at the Office of National Intelligence, you will also have the opportunity to seek reasonable adjustments in the workplace as part of your onboarding.
