Salary in MI5Watch
For people who do the intelligence officer graduate scheme with MI5, the initial salary is £30k, but does anyone know how high your salary could get in theory and after how many years? Thanks!
Not sure if you're still after an answer, but I emailed the government recruitment office asking about this. The email address was on MI5's website. Fair to say they weren't giving much away other than reiterating that starting salary is £31k rising to £34k after first year for MI5's Graduate Programme. Not sure how they expect to recuit people without telling them about possible career progression beyond the programme!!
A 10% increase after the first year bodes well for overall progression. Armed Forces officers have an almost identical initial salary and increase, so maybe having a look at their overall payscale give some perspective - both being public sector and in vaguely the same type of work would give a reasonable indication as to what earnings could be like.
