Job Description

Please Note:
• Our Armed Operations Unit are also recruiting Surveillance Motorcyclists. Please tick the box at the application should you be willing to undertake Firearms training at a later stage.
• Officers will be required to visit crime scenes and may encounter distressing crime related images.
• Successful candidates will be expected to pass a five day Officer Safety Training course (OST) during their probationary period or during their first six months in the Agency (Civil Service transfers). Failure to do so would mean you would not be able to continue in the operational Investigator role, we would seek to find you an alternative non-operational role within the agency.


The Officer Safety Training
(OST) combines cognitive input, armed and unarmed defence theory and practical techniques and as such, requires a level of physical exertion, due to the nature and repetition of the drills. The practical techniques include use of body weapons, movement and positioning, strikes (armed/unarmed) blocks, restraint and control. We will expect officers attending the course to have a standard of physical fitness. Progressive full body warm-ups are conducted each day to minimise risk of injury to the officer. It is expected the officer is capable of a ground descent and ascent, unaided and within a reasonable timeframe. This is important both individually and in team tactics.

***All NCA officers must hold SC Enhanced upon entry as a minimum. To meet the National Security Vetting requirements for this role you will need to have resided in the UK for a minimum of 3 out of the past 5 years. For more information please see the Candidate information Pack***
