Job Description

The EI Coordinator role will sit within the Intelligence Directorate. The EI Coordinator will support the EI Supervisor in delivering elements of the NCA EI process.

Following the introduction of the Investigatory Powers Act 2016, the NCA are required to apply for associated warrantry to deploy Targeted Equipment Interference (TEI) techniques. Enabling activity to deploy said techniques also falls under the IP Act, but can also be authorized under previously established legislation such as the Police Act 1997 and Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (RIPA) 2000. 

The Intelligence Directorate are the main providers of TEI techniques, however, tasking requiring these techniques may come from 
any Operational department within the NCA and other National Agencies or Police Forces. 
The ever increasing pace of technology requires applications for TEI warrants to be assessed as technically accurate and up to 
date. It has been recognised that there is a requirement for the NCA to employ TEI subject matter experts. 

Key Responsibilities

  • to advise applicants for TEI warrantry on the technical aspects of the warrant application. 
  • Advise Senior Investigating Officers in reference to TEI warrantry, data handling and disclosure. 
  • Coordinate/record TEI activity across the NCA. 

The role also requires supporting the TEI tasking process, identification of TEI trends and opportunities, liaison with National Agencies to deconflict activity, support to inspections and audits of NCA TEI activity and briefing on aspects of TEI process to relevant staff. 

To be considered, you will need to successfully complete DV clearance before commencing the role.
