Digital Forensic Technician - London

Post Posted: Feb 01, 19 16:19

Focus on digital forensics, and bring criminals to justice.

Nearly nine million people call London home. It’s an evolving and dynamic city, which means we face complex policing challenges every day. And in the Digital, Cyber and Communications (DCC) forensics team, you’ll be a vital part of bringing criminals to justice.

We provide invaluable digital forensic services across the Met. It’s about examining devices, such as mobile phones or computers, to help officers resolve investigations. So here, your impact will be felt on a daily basis.

Our Digital Forensic Hubs are labs located around the capital, and you’ll work in one of these hubs with a talented team consisting of a hub manager, other forensic technicians, and forensic assistants. You’ll perform digital forensic examinations, and ensure strategies meet appropriate legislation and quality standards. This rotational role will see you move between the hubs and central laboratory where you will receive advanced training to develop your skills and knowledge.

In this crucial role, you’ll conduct the forensic analysis of digital submissions, and give hands-on advice to investigating officers. That means communicating technical information in a clear, simple way. Your notes, reports and statements will be well written, and you’ll attend court as a witness.

It’s a fast-paced environment, often working to tight deadlines. So balancing competing priorities is a must, along with keeping a cool head under pressure. It takes sound decision-making, and a natural ability to solve problems. While a relevant technical degree (or equivalent experience) is required, it’s your attention to detail and enthusiasm for forensics that set you apart. You’ll also need excellent knowledge of digital forensics, particularly for either computers or mobile phones. Plus, you should have a technical understanding of the tools used to recover, analyse and process digital data.

To apply, click 'APPLY' where you will be re-directed to the Met Police Careers page to download a role-specific information pack, and complete an online application form with supporting CV and Personal Statement.

Completed applications must be submitted by 23.55pm 13th February 2019.

We view diversity as fundamental to our success. To tackle today’s complex policing challenges, we need a workforce made up from all of London’s communities. Applications from across the community are therefore essential.
