The Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) in the UK has launched an interesting online recruitment challenge aimed at weeding out the less talented wannabe code-breakers.

It posted this puzzle on a micro site, where interested job applicants have six weeks to find and solve five codes the cyber crime agency has hidden on the web.

It’s no surprise the agency is posing such a challenge to candidates, considering some of the positions they are hiring for are in their maths and cryptography department.

The ability to solve the puzzle, called “Can You Find It?”, will earn those who are successful between S$51,000 and S$117,300 a year.

The agency is known for famously cracking Hitler’s Enigma code during WWII, and whistleblower Edward Snowden claimed it has spied on foreign politicians visiting the G20 London Summit in 2009.

So, do you have what it takes to be the next James Bond?
