I’m free to try new things and better myself."

I’ve always loved taking things to pieces to see how they work, so it was a natural choice to study Electronic Engineering at uni. I always thought it would take me into quite a ‘traditional’ engineering job, but then I realised I’d get so much more at GCHQ. I like to write code and get stuck into the detail, but I also think like our adversaries and focus on long-term strategy. It’s the best of both worlds. It gives my skills real purpose and my potential is genuinely appreciated and valued. I’m also free to prioritise my own workload and do as much training as I like. It’s really empowering.
