Channel 4 are currently looking for a group of 20 ordinary men and women to attempt a course based on the authentic Recruitment and Training phases of Britain’s Intelligence Services.
The course will be as close to the real thing as possible and will immerse the candidates in a world of psychological pressure and uncertainty.

Could YOU have the potential to be a spy?
Visit www.minnowfilms.co.uk/spies to download the application form.

BEWARE:
Discretion is vital to this process.
Please don’t tell anyone about your application as it may affect your chances of being accepted.

The test starts now.

WHY DO ALL MEDIA REQUESTS NEED TO BE IN ALL CAPS? IT IS FUCKING ANNOYING!

IF IT'S SO SECRET SQUIRREL WHY ARE YOU SHOUTING?

will immerse the candidates in a world of psychological pressure and uncertainty.

Already done that course. It is called parenthood. wink

I really wish Mumsnet guidance for media requests would say that shouting really isn't necessary. I didn't push out the ability to read both lower and upper case when I gave birth....

Is working out why you've randomly capitalised some letters part of the test?

IS THE SHOUTING MEANT TO CAUSE PSYCHOLOGICAL PRESSURE?

I've had a look at the application form. It asks questions like, 'what is your greatest fear?' and if you put 'heights', you can bet that you'll be shouting: 'See you later Moneypenny' before leaping out of a helicopter.

It's also two weeks of filming. With no pay. So you get to make a tit of yourself for free.

My fears are handsome men and cake <cough>

No cash prize? ...so just for the glory?...not likely!

Where do I apply to be a mercenary?

LineyReborn Tue 03-May-16 18:05:13

Well yes, obviously I'd make a great spy. Which is clearly why we're discussing it on a fucking massively public website, you knobbers.

Surely the main thing about spies is that no-one knows who they are?
I am baffled by who on earth would apply for this.
