Britain’s security services are looking to recruit fluent Russian speakers as “spies”.
MI5, MI6, and GCHQ need analysts to combat cyber-attacks and espionage threats.
Lucky candidates can expect a salary of £30,831 to £36,350.
Applicants must have a degree in Russian and vetting can take up the nine-months.
Only British nationals or people holding dual citizenship can apply.
The secret service “007” roles are based in London while the GCHQ jobs are in Cheltenham.
The recruitment comes as the UK supports Ukraine in its war against an invading Russia army.
The job advertisement reads:
“What mark would you give your Russian?
“If you answered ‘пятерку’, we want you to use your skills to protect the UK.
“The Intelligence Agencies are offering you an exciting opportunity to put your Russian an expertise to valuable use in one of our organisations.”
It adds: “You’ll use your language and analytical skills to provide intelligence insights that often have direct impact on UK government policy and decision-making.
“Your challenge is to seek out the important information from Russian language material and make that material accessible and understandable to others.
“You’ll play an active role in directing projects and driving forward investigations, working right at the heart of intelligence.
“It’s gripping work, which will draw on your judgement, people skills and linguistic and cultural expertise every step of the way.”
Candidates must also be able to translate and have a knowledge of Russian culture, history, politics, ideology, and economy.
