Secondment/Fixed Term Contract

The South East Regional Organised Crime Unit (SEROCU) are looking for an Intelligence Analyst to join our Sensitive Intelligence Unit (SIU).

This is an exciting 12 Month Fixed Term Contract or secondment opportunity where you will provide high level analytical support to the SIU to assist in the prevention, targeting, disruption and detection of crime. You will use analytical techniques to create intelligence products to inform relevant strategic and tactical planning to the standard defined within the National Intelligence Model (NIM).

You will provide an efficient and effective analytical service for the ROCU Sensitive Intelligence Unit, producing National Intelligence Model knowledge products and analytical techniques to inform relevant strategic and tactical planning in relation to regional organised crime activity. You will have a relevant professional qualification or equivalent experience and knowledge of the NIM.

You will also have the ability to collate, evaluate, structure and process data to identify patterns, series, similarities and discrepancies within a variety of information types. Also essential are excellent IT skills and experience of preparing and conducting presentations and briefings.

SEROCU analysts can work on both tactical and strategic analysis and thematic areas include Modern Slavery, Drugs and Firearms as well as others.

SEROCU 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 (with possibility of Developed Vetting in the future). 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.

If you are applying for a secondment opportunity, your application must be supported by your Local or Force HR.

Applications must be submitted by the closing date of 23:55hrs on Sunday 28 July 2019.

For further information please email or telephone 01865 555839 quoting Job Reference 15942.

All posts require a level of Police Vetting as per the National Vetting Code of Practice. The residency requirement is necessary to enable all applicants to be checked in an equitable manner.

Thames Valley Police serves diverse communities; to truly reflect this, we are keen to recruit people from Black, Asian and other minority backgrounds. We value the knowledge and experiences that individuals bring from different cultures and welcome any contributions that can enhance the services we deliver to the public.
