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.
The main responsibilities of this post are to provide clear and high quality child protection advice and support to referrals, intelligence and investigation teams by working as part of a team of qualified social workers who are focused on supporting investigations into child sexual exploitation and abuse. You will work closely with our investigations advising them on safeguarding matters, as well as providing advice directly to children, parents and carers who report abuse to us through the CEOP Safety Centre.
The ideal candidate will have an understanding of joint working between police and social workers in child abuse investigations and of the impact of new technologies in creating opportunities for offenders and the consequent risks to children. Knowledge of all relevant statutory duties and responsibilities relating to children and families including relevant legislation and guidance will also be required.
