Information Specialist - Researcher. Protector. Father.

I always wanted to be a researcher, but I didn’t want to work in some ivory tower university – I wanted a job that covered a lot of different research opportunities… a role that actually leads to something meaningful. When I discovered that I could do just that – and make a real practical difference to the safety of the nation – well, I knew this was the place for me! It’s not just the variety of work I’m doing that I enjoy, but the benefits of working here, too. For instance, when I needed to take a short career break to look after our daughter, the paternity leave came in really handy. That’s why I joined GCHQ.
