6 Military Intelligence Battalion
6 Military Intelligence Battalion is an Army Reserve unit under the operational command of the 1st Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Brigade, within the Field Army.
We are looking for committed men and women to serve as officers and soldiers within 6 MI Battalion as Military Intelligence Operators, willing to give up their time to train and operate alongside the regular army, on exercise and operations.
In addition to recruiting people new to the Army as both soldiers and officers, we seek to recruit across the rank structure, where opportunities exist at all ranks. For personnel with the correct aptitude, we can accept transferees from other units within the Reserve Forces and from regular or ex-regular personnel.
All applicants interested in joining 6 MI Battalion go through a selection process to ensure that they have the right aptitudes and motivations for intelligence work. This applies to all new recruits and transferees, irrespective of rank. Exemptions apply to regular and ex-regular INT CORPS personnel who wish to join the Reserves.
6 MI Battalion also have a small number of vacancies for personnel from other cap badges, including military training instructors, Royal Signals personnel, military chefs, combat medics, nursing staff and human resources specialists.
Officers - 17 years 9 months to 50 years old (on entry to the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst).
Soldiers - 17 years 9 months to 50 years old (ex-regulars may be considered over the age of 43 years old on a case by case basis).
There are no minimum nationality requirements for a security clearance and the fact that a person is not a British national is not, therefore, by itself a bar to security clearance. Dual nationality is not a bar to application. Applicants should have been resident in UK for the last 10 years. If there are any questions regarding a candidate's eligibility please call the recruiting officer.
