The service is not suited for adventurers. It requires qualified employees with a genuine interest in national security. A lively mind, a good working attitude, emotional stability, a spirit of initiative and relish for teamwork are essential, along with high degrees of discretion and availability. Also important is fluency in different languages, including ease of both written and verbal communication.

Members of the SRE are recruited and employed according to the requirements set out in applicable legislation and regulations. Vacancies are announced on the govjobs website. All employees hold a security clearance appropriate to the degree of sensitivity of their work. To obtain clearance in order to be authorised to handle classified information, they must undergo a security investigation under the terms stipulated in the legislation of June 15, 2004 on the classification of documents and security clearance. This investigation is conducted to determine whether the applicant meets the required standards of discretion, loyalty and integrity to access classified documents.
