What do you know about the application of Forensic disciplines in the fight against Serious and Organised Crime? If you are intrigued by complex and sophisticated techniques together with technological challenges in a forensic environment, keep reading. Here at the National Crime Agency, we need people like you who are excited about creating an unrivalled Forensic capability that meets the challenges in our modern day fight against Serious and Organised Crime. Deploying the latest technology, capabilities and techniques in conjunction with your knowledge and expertise you will operate at the high end of risk in support of NCA operational activity.

We are looking to recruit a suitably qualified individual with relevant skills and experience within the Digital Forensics law enforcement arena, who is seeking a unique challenge in our fight to cut serious and organised crime. This role is key to the formation of our new Forensic Management Unit, which will be the heartbeat of everything ‘Forensic’ within the NCA. Your significant knowledge and experience will play a vital role in shaping the future forensic capability in support of NCA Investigations. As the complexity of electronic devices increases you will support the development of our current technical processes and increase robustness. You will manage and co-ordinate multifunctional forensic capabilities and staff, providing advice and support to investigations into technologically enabled crime.

As an integral decision maker between operational forensic activity, our partners and customers, you will demonstrate a robust attitude to forensic activity, evidencing value for money balanced against delivering bespoke forensic strategies.

This will be a diverse and rewarding role, with many opportunities for personal development, including relevant training and collaboration with peers in the UK and international agencies.

- Manage and co-ordinate operations and service delivery processes through the assessment and triage of forensic submissions;
- Develop existing services and technical capabilities;
- Research and investigate new technologies and consider their suitability for current and future forensic technical projects;

- Support the pursuit, maintenance and continuous improvement of ISO accreditation and forensic regulation for NCA Forensic services;
- Co-ordinate/conduct reactive and proactive investigations, gather evidence and intelligence in accordance with legislation, risk management and NCA policy;
- Participate in tasked operations, projects and investigations, gathering information, intelligence and evidence in order to disrupt and degrade criminal capability;
- Co-ordinate/conduct exhibit reviews to assess, advise and triage forensic submissions ensuring operational delivery and value for money in line with Forensic Service Department demands;
- Monitor operational forensic performance; and
- Manage, coach and develop staff.

- All officers in the NCA are members of the UK Civil Service. You will be eligible for:
- Civil Service pension scheme;
- 26 days annual leave rising to 31 on completion of 5 years continuous service;
- Training and development opportunities;
- Childcare voucher scheme;
- Cycle2work scheme;
- We take the welfare of NCA officers very seriously. All staff have access to Occupational Health services and there are a number of staff representative groups. We also have a range of sporting and other activities on offer; and
- We can provide flexible working arrangements if the role in question is suitable. These include flexitime, job sharing and compressed hours (working contracted hours over a shorter period).

Salary: The salary band for this position is £33,286 to £38,283. Where existing Civil Servants apply on transfer to the NCA at the equivalent grade, pay principles on Civil Service transfers will apply. All other salary offers will be made within the advertised band.
