The Intelligence Corps

Intelligence Corps Operators collect information from within and outside of the Battle Space and evaluate, analyse, integrate and interpret this information to provide intelligence for those in most need.

The Intelligence Corps is co-located with the Defence Intelligence and Security Centre (DISC) at Chicksands in Bedfordshire.

The structure of the Intelligence Corps is continually adapting to meet operational requirements, and currently comprises of a Military Intelligence Brigade which includes 3 regular and 2 reservist Multi Function Battalions.

The Intelligence Corps also provides personnel to support a number of other units and establishments within Defence.

Although one of the smallest Corps in the British Army there is much required of the Intelligence Corps who have a significant number of personnel preparing for, serving in, or recently returned from operational deployment.

The requirement for Operational Intelligence is a growth industry in which the Intelligence Corps are heavily involved.

Under FR20 the Intelligence Corps Reserve are raising two new Reserve Battalions, 6 MI Bn and 7 MI Bn.

Such is the demand for Operational Intelligence support that the Intelligence Corps are looking to recruit over 1000 personnel over the next 4 years. The Corps requires high quality Officers and Soldiers to man these new Reserve Units as well as continuing to recruit into the Regular Forces.

The Intelligence Corps offers the same financial incentives as the rest of the Army: In order to retain ex-regulars' valuable expertise within the Army a commitment bonus of up to £10,000 is being officered for ex-regular junior officers (captain and below) and ex-regular other ranks who join the Army Reserve. Direct entrants (new recruits) will be paid £300 upon enlistment, £1,000 for completing Phase 1 training, and a further £1,000 for completing Phase 2 training.
