An Agent is someone who takes on the role of a spy and does work for the MI6. The Agent risks their life more often than not. Of course, not every Agent is the stereotypical field agent. There are many other jobs an Agent can have, which can be found in the Agency Fact Files. An Agent has to be 21+, because being an Agent is often fraught with the potential for death, and of course, it is frowned upon to send a minor into the field. You become an Agent through applying for it, or by the MI6 acknowledging you as a talented citizen whose talents could be used for the country.
Since there are other sects of being an Agent, I'll list the following sects that might be of interest. If you do decide to be an Agent, I recommend you check out this list. Agents need to be specialized in something:
A Researcher, also called Searcher for short, is someone who obviously researches and comes up with cool gizmos, scientific medicines, and other science-y logistical stuff. A Researcher's life is definitely not in danger unless someone decides to bomb the lab. A Researcher is somewhat responsible for the lives of the Agents because it is the Researcher's gizmos that just might save them from dying. More rare, however, is a Researcher who is not on the MI6's side, but with the criminals, in which the Researcher is usually the one brewing addictives. Another path a Researcher can go is to be a Researcher for a corporation, such as Maximantics, which is pretty cool considering you'll probably get a lot richer than if you were a criminal Researcher or MI6 Researcher.
A Broker (short for Information Broker) sells information. A Broker can take on many forms, from being a poor, slum kind of guy to the prettiest socialite. It all depends. A Broker has to blend in with society in a way that gets him/her info that is juicy. A Broker can maintain to be neutral and sell info to both criminals and agents, but many Brokers monopolize and end up selling to only one party... whichever one they fear more, really.
These are government officials. Government officials enjoy butting into MI6 business. Many attend the fanciest of soirees, decide the heaviest of decisions, and end up symbols of United Kingdom. Some Government officials were known to be former Agents.
The private investigators, amateur kid detectives, police, and mystery fans go here. They aren't directly affiliated with MI6, but aspire to fight crime. They sometimes get in the way of Agents.
Civilians do no crime fighting. They may know of MI6, but they aren't going to jump in and save the world. They're normal people living normal lives.
Here are some ideas for jobs:
Criminals, also called Lawless, do criminal activities either for money or for revenge. They do acts of terrorism, blowing up buildings, stealing from banks... the fun stuff that are against the law. Some gangs/mafia become successful enough that it's run like some family. There have been criminals that seemed to have a rich, high position in society.
Criminals do a lot of things, which makes sense for there to be a lot of jobs:
