He is the problem for the likes of GCHQ and other intelligence organisations, they are offering a £25,000 a year job but expect someone who could be earning £80,000 a year in the private sector! but never the less GCHQ have set up an ingenious way of finding the right stuff by holding the “Can You Crack It?” challenge online, anyone can enter and if they find the keyword, they move onto the next stage of the recruitment process. Good luck!
According to Iain Lobban, who is the director of GCHQ, he told the parliamentary Intelligence and Security Committee;
“They will be working for Microsoft or Google or Amazon or whoever. And I can’t compete with their salaries. I can offer them a fantastic mission, but I can’t compete with their salaries.”
“Month-on-month, we are losing whizzes who’ll basically say: ‘I’m sorry, I am going to take three times the salary and the car and whatever else’.”
