Job Description

Due to the nature of the role it is highly advised that you review the Candidate Information pack attached to this vacancy. 

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 into 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 and drive forward our enquiries as quickly as we can. 

We are looking for a HOLMES Manager to support the objectives of an investigation by managing and leading a team who are responsible for the efficient running of the Home Office Large Major Enquiry System function in a Major Incident Room. This role involves leading a team who record, assess, assimilate and cross-reference information from a range of sources and to then capture and structure this within Major Incident Room Standard Administrative Procedures. 

The successful candidate will be trained in HOLMES indexing (preferably version 16) and have demonstrable experience of working within a major incident room.
