    Spy chiefs want working-class James Bonds to help combat terrorism.

    Instead of hunting real-life versions of the vodka martini-sipping 007 played by Daniel Craig, they are more interested in the barman who would mix his cocktails.

    The woke diversity drive by MI5, MI6 and GCHQ is also aimed at black and ethnic minority recruits who are still at university but fancy being a future spy.

    Candidates for the Summer Diversity Intelligence Internships can prove they come from working-class backgrounds by revealing if their parents are employed in “technical and craft” or “manual and ­service” jobs.

    These include motor mechanics, fitters, inspectors, plumbers, printers, tool makers, electricians, gardeners and train drivers.

    Others could be the offspring of postal or farm workers, machine operatives, security guards, caretakers, catering or sales assistants, bus, taxi, minicab or truck drivers, cleaners, porters, packers, labourers, waiters and bar staff.

    Those whose parents are unemployed can apply – if their mother or father is on the look-out for work. The recruitment scheme gets under way next June.

    An ad for the security services’ drive states: “Over 11 weeks you will help us investigate and disrupt international terrorism.

    “You’ll learn how front-line operations are run, piece together intelligence and create a picture of possible threats.

    “By the end of the internship you will understand how we protect national security.

    “You’ll gain unique insights – while sharing your own because everyone’s perspectives contribute to making our operations a success.’’
