Shoreditch spies: the British intelligence headquarters is recruiting in east London

Spend a lot of time in Shoreditch and fancy a career change? There could be a job with the British intelligence service with your name on it. No, really. The Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) has sprayed cryptic messages on the streets of Shoreditch in an attempt to lure away east London's super smart (and sometimes bearded) folks from their tech start-ups and tempt them to go and work for 'the man' instead. The advert, which has been created using stencils and a pressure hose, reads: 'GCH-Who? Technical opportunities,'. So if you've always fancied yourself as the next James Bond, now's your chance – although in reality it's probably a lot more coding and spreadsheets than cocktails and swanky gadgets.

Elsewhere in Shoreditch, a selfie gallery has opened (it was going to happen eventually).
