The Intelligence Corps

Intelligence Corps (INT CORPS) Operators collect information from range of sources and evaluate, analyse, integrate and interpret this information to inform the commanders decision-making process.

The INT CORPS Headquarters is located at Chicksands in Bedfordshire.

The INT CORPS provides an intelligence capability to both the Army and wider Defence.

A large element of the INT CORPS is employed within the 1st Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) Brigade (Bde). The ISR Bde includes the Regular Military Intelligence (MI) Battalions (Bns) (1 MI Bn, 2 MI Bn and 4 MI Bn) as well as the Reserves (3 MI Bn, 5MI Bn, 6 MI Bn and 7 MI Bn).


Although one of the smallest Corps in the British Army the INT CORPS is at the fore front of the Army’s activities. The INT CORPS has 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 INT CORPS is heavily involved.

Under Future Reserve 20 plans the INT CORPS Reserve have raised two new Reserve Battalions, 6 MI Bn and 7 MI Bn.


The INT CORPS offers the same financial incentives as the rest of the Army: In order to retain the valuable expertise of ex-regulars' within the Army a commitment bonus of up to £10,000 is being offered for ex-regular junior officers (captain and below) and ex-regular other ranks who join the Army Reserve.

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.
