Good at crosswords? If so you could have the right mentality for a job at Britain's spy agency GCHQ. Crack the code of five characters in five parts hidden within the GCHQ Web site to reveal the message and then apply for the job. GCHQ – which stands for Government Communications Headquarters - is looking for IT specialists, librarians and linguists to earn £20,000 to £26,000 a year. The coded message was really a bit of fun said a GCHQ spokeswoman to The Times. Secretly, spy novelist Rupert Allason believes they are really looking for code-breakers. Fancy yourself as the next James Bond? Then take up the GCHQ challenge here. ® Related links Brit Net agency to track drug gangs and paedophiles We demand our D-Notice from MI6
