Job Description

Investigations Command is the core crime fighting capability of the NCA. We take an intelligence-led approach and concentrate on tackling the criminals and risks to the public which are beyond the capability or capacity of other law enforcement bodies. 

The Investigations Command provides a flexible, shared operational capability, designed to maximise the impact of the UK's collective resources against serious and organised crime, and in specialist support of major crime. Our teams respond to a broad range of threats, many of which also remain a responsibility for police forces and other agencies as well as private industry. 

Our teams also lead investigations across the Serious and Organised Crime landscape and provide a national service of specialist investigative skills and expertise to support major crime investigations conducted by police forces, such as abduction, serial sexual crime and no body murder. 

Operation STOVEWOOD is the largest investigation in non-recent child sexual exploitation (CSE) undertaken by law enforcement. The NCA is leading on this major independent investigation into non-familial child sexual exploitation and abuse in Rotherham, South Yorkshire and we are growing the team to ensure that we continue to focus on the needs of the victims and survivors, while also driving forward our enquiries as quickly as we can. 

The successful candidate will support disruption and safeguarding action across Operation STOVEWOOD by working with the team and partners to safeguard victims and others in the community, disrupt suspect activity and dismantle CSE networks.
