Operational Planning and Exercise Support
We are recruiting for an Operational Planning and Exercise Support to join our Counter Terrorism Policing South East (CTP SE) Protect and Prepare team.
In this exciting role, you will support the delivery of CTPSE, Regional and National CT exercise programme across the South East Region. You will be responsible for the coordination of resourcing and planning linked to CT operational and contingencies plans. You will support delivery of operational and exercise debriefs, providing written debrief reports capturing identified issues and best practice.
You will also provide presentations/briefings to regional representatives and external stakeholders/partners to promote the development of regional operational contingency and response plans.
You will have excellent communication, planning and problem solving skills. You will also have experience of developing strong working relationships with partner agencies or equivalent.
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. For this reason, a full UK Driving licence is essential to the role.
