Hi I was just wondering what I would need to become a mi5 agent? I will give myself 10 years to become this as I know this will not happen over night which I will be 30 . So how do I go about this?

I think most agents in the secret service are mainly computer geeks. The part in the bond movie where they say the agent is a dying race and it is being replaced by people with computers is real.
Nobody pulls a trigger anymore in the CIA or any of those intelligence agencies. They gather the intel electronically and then work with other countries to stop the bad guys etc., it's mainly corporate espionage these days that they cover. Essentially your just another suit. If you are interested in the action look into a position with the government for homeland security or something to that effect, but even that action is mainly covered through the army, national guard, police etc., and it is just gathering intel.0
