Full Time

Our Intelligence Team comprises of specialist teams with officers and staff who provide intelligence support to Counter Terrorism Policing South East (CTP SE) and to the south east regional forces.

In this exciting role, you will provide high quality research and development packages. You will identify, collate, research, assess, review and present information and intelligence from a wide range of sources on identified individuals and organisations. You will assist in the preparation and presentation of a variety of intelligence or evidential packages.

You will have recent and relevant experience within an intelligence environment and experience of research. You will have excellent communication skills and be a good team player.

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 Developed Vetting (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.

Following induction and initial training this post will become shift based (five week shift pattern) for which there is a shift allowance; however for the duration of induction / initial training the post holder will be on the standard duties (Mon-Fridays). There is also the potential for on-call work but this is on a volunteer basis and for more experienced staff members (on-call work also attracts a 5% standby allowance).

Detailed planning work is ongoing to identify interim and long term options, which will include planning for growth and development of Counter Terrorism Policing in the South East into the future.
