Senior Digital Forensic Investigator (Team Leader)

Greater Manchester Police is one of the largest police forces in the UK and is responsible for keeping its diverse population of almost 3 million safe, spread over more than 1,200 sq. km. Manchester in particular has been billed as the most diverse city in Europe with its population speaking at least 200 different languages, leading to the city being named as Britain’s “City of languages”. GMP are committed to ensure that the make-up of our workforce is reflective of the communities we serve and we recognise that having a diverse workforce makes us more approachable and relevant to the public.

The Greater Manchester Police Digital Forensic Investigation Unit is one of the largest and continuously expanding digital forensics teams in the UK, striving to become a centre of excellence for digital forensics. Recently the unit have secured a significant investment to further expand the team to 72 staff and officers over the next 2 years, with the initial expansion focusing on a number of key roles within the team. This expansion is a genuine acknowledgement of the crucial and valuable contribution that digital forensics brings to the modern day police investigation.

In addition to the expansion in resources there are plans in place to re-locate the unit along with colleagues from Forensic Services to a purposely designed facility perfectly located on the outer city M60 ring road, with access to all major routes in and out of Manchester.

The expansion includes a complete re-design of the unit structure, incorporating new management, supervisory, team leader and co-ordination related positions as wells as an uplift in technical and investigative positions to further enhance the increasing requirement to support the front line with scene based examinations.

The DIU is looking for driven and motivated candidates to continue this journey and help support policing in an ever-changing technological environment.

As a leader in a dynamic team, you will work closely with others in the unit with different experience and specialisms, and lead on cutting-edge research and development. You will recognise and manage risk posed by a range of different cases, making difficult decisions around risk and proportionality.

It will be the team leaders reasonability to ensure standards of best practice and accreditation quality are adhered to within their respective teams, and they will be required to be the direct line manager for development, performance, quality and HR issues for their team members.

With substantial experience working in digital forensics, or in an equivalent technical role, you will have the extensive knowledge, skills and abilities to manage and complete complex forensic examinations and analysis of a wide range of digital devices.

You will use these and knowledge of criminal investigation to support complex and challenging police cases. You will supervise your team, playing a key role in mentoring, development, quality and performance alongside supporting their wellbeing in challenging roles.

The ideal candidate will have thorough and practical knowledge of criminal legislation detailed in the job description.
