    Not that I’m considering going for a career with MI6, I doubt they’d have me! But out of interest, how well do you think MI6 employees get paid?

    Obviously there are quite a few different job positions that pay differently, but how well do you think the spectrum of pay is from the analysts to the field agents up to the directors?

    OP, check out their website, the MI6 is also called the SIS and the MI5 has their own website separate to the SIS.

    I doubt they'll post it, but I'm assuming it would be very high, maybe between 50,000-100,000 grand?

    I wouldn't say it's a very high salary, maybe 20-30k depending on the job? The main motivation for joining would be the novelty of being a "secret agent" I suppose...

    I would have guessed pretty much in line with most of the civil service. You do it because you want to work for the UK government not because you want to make money, most of the high fliers throughout government are on far lower salaries than they could be as high fliers in the City.

    Would think they are paid on the same pay scale as any other Civil Servant.

    My friends dad was SAS, he said they got paid crap wages doing rubbish work at the lower end.

    £16k
    really????! not saying he isn't but a lot of people say they're ex sas... they get paid well now, it says so on the british army's website and loads of them were quitting to do private serurity jobs so the government upped their wages.

    Having spoken about Mi6 on the internet you've just blown any chance you had of ever getting in.

    Someone that knows how to handle weapons, and be able to kill a guy from 500m away with a handgun. Then they hire you to kill random people you've never met. They do this under the table of corse, and not on record.

    ... Now I would have to kill you. Again.

    For case officers, I'd imagine around £40 - 50,000 a year depending on the level of risk they're exposed to. Linguists and analysts are probably paid around £30,000 a year. Directors 100k plus???? that's just a BIG guess!

    Off the top of my head, I think MI5 operational officers (i.e. the ones that stake out houses etc.) got around 28K - so I'd imagine it would be similar or slightly higher.

    SAS isn't equal to MI6/SIS.
