The Canadian Secret Service Is Hiring Intelligence Officers & Here's What It Takes

If you've always dreamt of living out a life like that of James Bond, working for the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) could be your chance to live out that dream.

CSIS is currently seeking bilingual Canadian citizens for the position of Intelligence Officer, a job based in Ottawa that pays between $71,010 and $102,250 per year and could involve travel.

The duties of the officer include conducting, coordinating and directing investigations that target specific subjects or countries, conducting research and analyzing information related to Canada's national security.

To apply for this position, applicants only need a completed bachelor's degree from a recognized Canadian institution.

Candidates should have good interpersonal skills, analytical skills, good oral and written communication skills, good judgment, and the ability to adapt. Knowledge of at least one foreign or indigenous language is considered an asset.

To accommodate diversity, CSIS gives priority to visible minorities and Indigenous peoples. Training will be provided for those who meet the hiring criteria except for bilingualism.

If selected, you will also be required to "successfully complete the Intelligence Officer Training Program (IOTP) which is offered in Ottawa," says the CSIS.

And finally, make sure to be very discreet about your application process. In fact, a polygraph security interview and background investigation are required to obtain an "Enhanced Top Secret" security clearance.
