The Canadian CIA Is Hiring Intelligence Officers & You Need To Know How To Be Sneaky
You could make over $100K with an "Enhanced Top Secret" security clearance.
The Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS), part of the country's national security system, is hiring intelligence officers and you need to be sneaky if you want to get the job.
With this Ottawa-based position, the yearly pay is between $71,010 and $102,250, and eligibility is only open to Canadian citizens who are visible minorities and/or Indigenous. Anyone who applies has to know English and French or agree to become bilingual through training.
Requirements for the job include a bachelor's degree, an understanding of the CSIS mandate and priorities about national security, a willingness to travel and the ability to relocate anywhere in Canada for work as needed. International travel and knowledge of foreign or Indigenous languages are considered assets but are not necessities.
Intelligence officers are responsible for conducting, coordinating and managing investigations, preparing reports on matters related to Canada's national security, developing information networks, and more. They are also required to be discreet while performing their job.
All candidates have to be eligible to receive an "Enhanced Top Secret" security clearance, which involves a security interview, a polygraph and a background investigation.
Applications are being accepted online until August 4 and if you submit one, you're being told to not discuss your application with anyone besides your partner or close family members (but they also need to be hush-hush about it).
Company: Canadian Security Intelligence Service
Who Should Apply: CSIS is looking for people who are passionate about working in the field of national security. Eligibility is only being extended to Canadian citizens who are visible minorities and/or Indigenous.
