The World's Intelligence

For the first time in a century the Secret Intelligence Service, better known as MI6, is advertising for staff. This is a big step considering the British government only admitted the existence of Six in 1994. Would be administrators, officers, analysts, linguists, and information technology specialists can apply on-line.

In a carefully worded passage the site explains that "James Bond, as Ian Fleming originally conceived him, was based on reality". It adds: "Staff who join SIS can look forward to a career that will have moments when the gap narrows just a little and the certainty of a stimulating and rewarding career which, like Bond's, will be in the service of their country."
