Military Intelligence Operator HUMINT

#1
I am interested in joining as a Military Intelligence Operator and would like to know what the job is actually like and if i can choose to specialise in HUMINT or do i get assigned. Do you work alone a lot of the time and do you get deployed often, is it sat behind a computer all day or out on the field, just general information on the day to day workings would be helpful.

Thanks.

See the relevant DIN.

Your editor should hold them somewhere in his office.

The job is challenging and interesting. It brings plenty of opportunity to travel abroad and spend time away from family and friends for up to and beyond 6 months at a time. There is as much chance of you getting killed if you are a bird or a blurk.

Which of the 7 distinct facets of HUMINT did you feel you were best skilled and experienced to contribute to? The selction of your first HUMINT assignment will depend on this.



Does your Mater or Pater know you are posting on this website?

I'm not sure what you mean by "7 distinct facets of HUMINT". Basically, I am looking for a career in the ARMY and the job of Military Intelligence Operator caught my eye. I am 18 years old and have GCSE'S and also 3 AS Levels in Law, Psychology and Philosophy and Ethics. I would not mind spending long periods of time away from friends and family as i have no commitments holding me down. I want an interesting and challenging career. I haven't even gone down to my local AFCO for information yet, thought i'd post a quick question before i decide it's what i would like to do. I know the job will not make me like James Bond but i don't particualry want an office job the rest of my life so any information on the day to day work would be great.

Thanks.

Ok well you decided to single out a specific Intelligenc discipline, without actually knowing what you are talking about. This may not bode well.

Expect to spend a lot of time working in an office, that may be an office, a tent, an office vehicle, or a corner of a semi derelict building. After 4-6 years you may have proved your ability to handle the basics of intelligence analysis and management. Then, suitably informed you can seek that opportunity to diversify.

Alternatively, if you would prefer to go in for HUMINT direct entry click here

I've read the website and the HUMINT side of intelligence appealed to me most, over the signal and imagery types. So do i get a choice or do they choose if i go HUMINT or not? And everybody says you spend a lot of time in offices, but doing what exactly?

This really is the most unhelpful forum in the world. All i wanted to know is what an intelligence corp does on an average day and you have to respond with images like that. Seriously, grow up and get a life. Do you actually find it interesting and fun posting comments that are immature and useless. Like you, they serve no purpose.

Turn off your computer, move out your mums basement and try to get some kind of meaning to your life instead of just posting on a forum. You must have had real ambitions as a child.

Why don't you actually go to the careers office and ask them? :roll:

Seriously if you're going to have a hissy fit over this level of leg pulling I'm not sure if the Corps or even the Army is the right place for you.

Firstly, i will go to my AFCO but i dont think they are open at this time of the day and secondly its not a hissy fit it's actually quite amusing how grown men spend there time posting pointless stuff on a forum :) fun fun fun :)

It's not actually. The problem is that this question is asked over and over again by people who don't take the time to read the information already available, and thus tends to be dealt with by Arrsers with a slightly jaundiced cast to their eyes. If you read the various 'sticky' threads above, you should get a reasonable idea of what it's all about, and if there's anything you still want to ask, ask it up there. This part of the Int Corps board is more of a bear-pit.

Funny, aint you? :roll:


Call me old fashioned but if you want information about the British Army or any of the numerous jobs, the first port of call isn't the interweb. I can see the Int chaps are going to have fun with you.

It appears that your decision to join the Int Corps occurred about five minutes before you decided to join this website. Hardly surprising you've been given some bone answers.
