Security clearance requirements

While each role will have its own individual qualification and technical requirements, the nature of our work means the majority (but not all) of the successful candidates will need to be security cleared.  Please refer to the individual job descriptions for eligibility requirements. Generally, to gain the high-level security clearance you must:

  • be a UK national (or NATO national); and
  • have resided in the UK for the past 5 years.

To understand more about what this means, read section 3 of the Civil Service Nationality Rules.

Current opportunities

We are currently recruiting a large number of people from a variety of backgrounds (electrical engineering, computer science, maths, physics, bioengineering, mechanical and aerospace engineering, etc) and levels of experience (undergraduates, postgraduates, postdocs, academics and industrialists).
