M16 are hiring…

You would be forgiven if you missed it last week, what with Prescott, Clarke and Hewitt taking the limelight, but for the first time in its history, M16 are publicly recruiting staff.

On Thursday 27th April, The Times ran this advert:

A day later they ran Pass notes No 160: MI6 RECRUITMENT DRIVE

Interestingly, M16 is now also known as the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), as this post confirms.

Amongst other positions, they’re looking for software folks with these skills: OO languages such as J2EE, Java/HTML, Oracle SQL, C# and .net. and must be able to operate in Windows XP, Windows 2003 Server and/or Linux/Unix. If you fancy a change of scenery, sign up here. If that doesn’t work, try this.
