A nice, relaxing job opportunity with MI5.
The Security Service (MI5) needs specialists in explosives, IEDs, small arms and light weapons. Working closely with non-technical colleagues, you will produce assessments of terrorist weaponry for a wide and sometimes senior readership.
Explosive and Improvised Explosive Device (IED) Specialist
With extensive knowledge of explosives and IEDs, you will have a sound awareness of various types of commercial, military and improvised explosives, their properties and origins. You will have some knowledge of terrorist use of explosives and IEDs.
Small Arms and Light Weapons Specialist
You will have in-depth knowledge of both conventional and improvised small arms and light weapons, including man-portable air defence systems and thermobarics. An awareness of their make-up, capability and origin is essential. Knowledge of the grey arms market is desirable.
For both positions, knowledge of electronics/communications would be an advantage. You will have the ability to analyse and assess intelligence from a range of sources and draw sound conclusions sometimes based on incomplete information. You will be able to draft concise reports and possess sound communication skills at all levels. You will also be required to travel globally and at short notice and work with foreign liaisons for intelligence purposes.

Tell them Spinneyhead sent you. Or perhaps not, it probably wouldn’t help you in the vetting process.
I’m still contemplating restarting the DEx strip. Bits of this job description cover areas one of the characters was going to be expert in, though he’s actually ex MI6.
