An exciting opportunity has arisen to play a key role in the development of a new ICT Team embedded within Counter Terrorism Policing in the South East (CTPSE).

Counter Terrorism Policing South East (CTPSE) is a collaboration of the five South East police forces, and works with the UK Intelligence community to help protect the public and our national security by preventing. Deterring and investigation terrorist activity. The unit is in the process of setting up a new ICT team, and we are really pleased to advertise the opportunity to form part of this new and exciting team.

In this role you will provide specialist advice and support to specific technical servers, storage, infrastructure platform specialisms and associated user workstations in support of specialist technical teams across CTPSE. You will act as the CTPSE IT point of contact for national and regional projects and programmes, playing a key role in ensuring that CTP has the technical infrastructure in place that it needs to deliver the vital service that it provides to the communities within the South East and across the UK.

The successful candidate will have a good understanding of IT operating infrastructures (including IP Networks) an ICT Operations Management. They will be a recognised practitioner in a number of technical server, storage and client delivery infrastructure technologies and will also have experience in planning, designing, building and delivering core infrastructure solutions. It is essential that you have the flexibility to travel across the South East region as need arises, and therefore a UK driving licence is considered essential.

CTP SE is 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 Developed Vetted (DV) 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.
