MI5 – What we do – Spy Website of the Week

When looking for great spy related websites, MI5’s seems an obvious spot, but I’d like to focus on one particular part of their website this week.

Under their section entitled “What we do” you can review a the different jobs available and see a log of their daily activities. If you are looking for a day-in day-out view of what it would be like to work in an intelligence agency, this is a great start. Some of the entries are pure minute to minute logs of what they do, others are essays about there job and how they got there.

What does it reveal? That like any government bureaucracy, you will spend the majority of your time filling out paperwork. A bit less fascinating than discovering everyone is James Bond, but still really interesting stuff.
