Civilian intelligence work is either Civil/Crown Service, not the easiest thing to get into without either formidable specialist skills or a decent degree - and not tremendously well paid, at that - or the preserve of journalism grads, economists or subject matter experts....I have looked into RMP's and for me it's not my fit, although CP is a real option upon leaving. I would love to work in intelligence upon leaving the Army to be honest, either that or teaching CIED with some contracting work.
I appreciate your guidance.
There is a small sector of proper intelligence providers, but they're high-end and generally run by folk with very crunchy backgrounds in other government departments, law enforcement or a tiny number from the military, plus a tinyiersector of technical and other specialist intelligence providers, again with very strong specialist backgrounds. The latter has a good representation of ex-Corps, but mainly those who chose a specific career trajectory and stuck with it.
C-IED is a different animal, as you'll be aware from your current role. Much of the attractive technical expertise in that field is in another cap badge.
CP is deadly but can be lucrative at the blue chip end of the market, which is what RMP supply. Again, requires a great deal of determination and drive to get on that career track in the RMP and stick to it.
Int Corps does provide all manner of interesting opportunities, though and ex-Corps folk do seem to do OK in civilian life, judging by those I know.
