In this interesting role you will manage and progress the investigation of criminal offences and other incidents and enquiries, working as an integral part of a mixed economy team of Police Officers and staff. You will complete investigative actions, prepare case papers ensuring file completeness and delivery in accordance with court deadlines, legislation and force policy and maintain victim and witness confidence to facilitate successful outcomes.

You must have experience of working in an investigative role within the criminal justice system or equivalent.

Please note that due to the length of this contract, the PIP 2 accreditation is considered essential as training cannot be provided. Knowledge of current Thames Valley Police systems would also be highly desirable.

You will have excellent communication skills, listening and questioning skills with the ability to engage with people at all levels, sometimes in potentially confrontational situations.  You will also need to have meticulous attention to detail and the ability to gather and record information effectively within set procedures, in a logical and easily understood format and style. Capability to travel across the Force is required in order to undertake assignments in a timely manner and work flexibly.  Due to unsocial hours and personal safety for lone working public transport may not be suitable.  For this reason a full driving licence is considered essential for this role. You must be flexible in your approach in terms of working times and locations and be able to undertake shifts to work evenings and weekends as required.

Along with all other posts in Force Crime, Intelligence and Specialist Operations Departments, this role will require an enhanced level of vetting.  Psychological screening will also be required for this role.

If you are a permanent member of staff applying for this role, please note it will be offered on a secondment basis. Important: All secondments are assumed supported and that your line manager and Head of Department/Commander or Deputy are aware of your intention to apply. If the secondment is not supported then a strong business rationale must be sent to recruitmentpolicestaff@thamesvalley.pnn.police.uk quoting the reference number for the role.

Please note: Shift allowance, on-call or other job related allowances from the previous role will not be protected unless they are attached to the new role for the duration of the secondment.
