    The fact that you posted on a public forum of your intention to enter SIS probably means you shouldn't

    There are three different types of operational officers, there is a case officer, Targeting officer and a report officer.

    Case Officers plan and carry out covert intelligence operations overseas.*Spending time in London as well as abroad, they gather the secret intelligence the Government needs to promote and defend UK national interests.* Case Officers are responsible for recruiting and running agents, and must demonstrate highly developed interpersonal skills.*They will normally spend more of their career overseas than other roles.

    Targeting Officers use their analytical skills to identify new sources and contribute to operational planning. Targeting Officers direct the work of Officers overseas and work very closely with Case Officers and Reports Officers in order to plan successful intelligence gathering operations.*They may be posted overseas.

    And last,

    Reports Officers become subject matter experts on geographical areas or specific topics, such as terrorism or counter proliferation.* They will work closely with Government colleagues, Case Officers and Targeting Officers to ensure that the intelligence collected and disseminated meets Government needs.

    That is basically all they tell you on the website, due to security, so posting on here is not the best of ideas.

    The pay is just over 24000. Everything you need to know is on their website. Their employment process is very tough.

    The salary rises when you rise through the different pay bands.

    The job is mainly in London but there are also some regional offices.
