p2pnet news view | Off Topic:- Are you a Briton looking for an exciting new career where the ability to lie convincingly is a prerequisite?
No. This isn’t about signing up with Vivendi Universal, EMI, Warner Music and Sony BMG’s BPI (British Phonographic Industry).
Instead, “Join us as an operational officer collecting and analyzing global intelligence to protect the UK.”
Really? Yup. It’s an employment advertisement, but isn’t in The Times of London.
It’s in Facebook.
It seems Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), known colloquially as MI6 and Bond, James Bond’s, former employer, has targeted the site as as a spy recruitment agency.
“As Britain’s secret service, SIS provides the British Government with a global covert capability to promote and defend the national security and economic well-being of the United Kingdom,” says the official site. “SIS operates world-wide to collect secret foreign intelligence in support of the British Government’s policies and objectives.”
Not only but also, “In SIS we can offer people from a very wide range of backgrounds the chance to develop an absorbing career in the global intelligence arena,” it says, going on, “discover how you could use your skills to help protect the security of your country”.
It, “used to be all Oxford and Cambridge graduates,” observes Digital Trends, “but now the more egalitarian MI6 is advertising for recruits on Facebook”.
However, “bring your own Aston Martin,” it adds. “The government’s on a budget, you know.”
