Britain's international intelligence service is advertising for new real life James Bonds.
MI6 chiefs are placing ads in The Times newspaper and The Economist magazine this week.
The ads feature photos of places in the world where MI6 operate from their London HQ by the Thames to Arabian deserts and central American jungles.
One of them reads: "We operate around the world to make this country safer and more prosperous."
A Government source said: "We hope people who might have thought MI6 was not for them may consider us as an employer."
As well as agents, MI6 is looking for administrators, analysts, linguists, and technology experts.
It's a first for MI6 but Britain's domestic spy service MI5 placed similar adverts two years ago.
Probably because all of the recent "James Bonds" have been such disappointments.
Yeah..just wondering if they provide the life jackets for the new agents for when they take speed boat rides...
Guys at the Annapolis wouldn't issue me a M16 when I arrived In-Country.
However, we had a large arsenal in the trailer safe on the LST beach outside Vung Tau.
"Goldeneye" was great, and I really liked "The Living Daylights."
"Die Another Day" and "The World Is Not Enough" were just lousy.
Cool - I'd love to have Q's job.
Pay attention, Bond!
Alright I'll take bond's job, if you can make sure I get to hook up with Famke Janssen, Sophie Marceau, Thandie Newton, and Halle Berry to name a few. I'll sign up today!!!
