Have you ever thought about an administrative role within Counter Terrorism Policing South East (CTP SE)?

We are looking for a Typist/Administrator to join our Major Incident Room (MIR) - crucial to CTP SE.

You will provide efficient administrative support, including word processing, preparing tape summaries and other clerical services. You will deal with confidential material relating to terrorist incidents in support of CTP SE. This role primarily involves undertaking typing of statements, reports, documents, and messages onto the HOLMES system as required, to a high degree of accuracy, in compliance with HOLMES conventions and to meet priorities and deadlines.

You will have a good level of education and good interpersonal / communication skills developed in a demanding office environment demonstrating discretion, tact and diplomacy. You will also have proven ability to work on your own initiative and prioritise with excellent time management skills and good IT literacy and ability to learn new packages including Holmes. Training to use the CT Holmes system will be provided by way of a non-residential course.

CTP SE are committed to becoming the most diverse team in the South East. We encourage interest and applications from candidates of all backgrounds and particularly welcome applications from female and BAME (black, Asian and minority ethic) candidates to enable us to truly reflect the communities we serve.

Due to the role requirements, it is essential that the post holder be prepared to be security cleared to enhanced level. Furthermore, due to the nature and sensitivity of work carried out we require that candidates not only hold this vetting level but that they also undertake additional security clearances which include additional nationality checks. This post is therefore restricted to UK nationals. This is line with government requirements, supported by Cabinet Office policy and Section 82(2) to (4) of the Police Reform Act (2002), and is for the purpose of safeguarding national security, to ensure that any potential vulnerabilities are identified at an early stage.

This role is part of a national, regional and local network and as a result you will be required to travel for business purposes. This may include travel across the UK and is not limited to the south east. You will be asked to demonstrate flexibility regarding working hours in line with operational demand and occasionally this may require working away from home.

Applications must be submitted by the closing date of 23:55hrs on Sunday 21 July 2019.
