UK spooks provide a cryptic job advert

Written by Nick Farrell



Work this out and you might get it

UK spooks have come up with a cryptic puzzle which could land the person who cracks it a top job.

All you have to do is work out what this puzzle is saying and you could end up with a job as a code breaker for GCHQ.
The code is:

AWVLI QIQVT QOSQO ELGCV IIQWD LCUQE EOENN WWOAO

LTDNU QTGAW TSMDO QTLAO QSDCH PQQIQ DQQTQ OOTUD

BNIQH BHHTD UTEET FDUEA UMORE SQEQE MLTME TIREC

LICAI QATUN QRALT ENEIN RKG

Apparently it is an online treasure hunt provides a series of clues, leading to a number of different places around the world-wide web which will ultimately unlock the final answer.
The codes were created by a GCHQ team of top mathematicians.

The spy bosses said they wanted curious, tenacious and creative candidates who have the intellectual ability, though not necessarily the practical experience or qualifications, to join GCHQ and support the Government's national cyber security agenda.
GCHQ offers a salary of up to £60,000 and provides the chance to work in partnership with the Security Service (MI5) and Secret intelligence Service (MI6). Pussy Galore was not included, apparently you will have to get your own.

GCHQ's head of resourcing, Jane Jones, said: "The 21st century is confronting us with online threats that are difficult and dangerous, so we want employees who have evolved with the ever-changing digital world and therefore have the right skills to combat these challenges."
