Job Description

Summary

Every day will be different. Using innovative approaches and ground breaking techniques you will be making decisions which help to disrupt and bring to justice criminals who present the highest threat to the UK.

Responsible for managing and leading officers investigating serious and organised crime.

For candidates interested in Cyber roles these roles will be based in Birmingham, London and Warrington.

Job description

As a Senior Investigator, you will be managing a team of PIP2 investigators and mentoring trainees so you will have experience mentoring and developing staff.

You will be required to manage and lead serious and organised crime investigations as a Deputy SIO / Action Allocator, you will be experienced in managing risk, and have proven experience in decision making and managing resources.

You will be working closely with other NCA departments and partner agencies to identify threats from criminality and work in a challenging environment to pursue offenders.
 

Responsibilities

Main Responsibilities include:

• An in-depth knowledge and use of relevant legislation (UK and international law) affecting operational agency activity.
• Proven experience of successfully leading or supervising people or a team to deliver against operational objectives and performance.
• Experience in effective operational decision making with accountability for decisions made.
• Proven experience in managing risk in a pressurised operational environment.
• PIP2 supervisor accreditation or can evidence equivalent supervisory investigative experience.

Individuals who do not currently hold PIP2 Supervisor accreditation are still eligible to apply as long as they can provide evidence of equivalent level experience.

Successful candidates will be expected to pass a five day Officer Safety Training course (OST) during their probationary period or during their first twelve 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.

The 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 time frame. This is important both individually and in team tactics.
