Digital Forensic Examiner - London

Post Posted: Feb 01, 19 16:21

Examine the latest tech for the most high-profile cases

With technology evolving faster than ever, it’s vital that we’re equipped to investigate all digital evidence. That’s why we’re looking for an experienced Digital Forensic Examiner to join the National Digital Exploitation Service (NDES). This high-profile unit is part of the Counter-Terrorism (CT) policing network and offers the chance to work on national and international cases that may impact UK security.

As the demands on our digital forensic team continue to grow, we need to bring more experts to our NDES unit. Your role will be to obtain data from computer media (including mobile phones), analyse it, and present it as evidence in court. You may also be asked to attend crime scenes if turning off a device could mean the loss of evidence. In all cases, you’ll need a methodical approach to digital investigation.

The unit needs to stay up to date with the latest technology, so you’ll also be assessing future needs and our operational capability. This will ensure that we keep pace with advances, while placing you at digital’s cutting-edge.

With a strong background in digital forensics, you’ll already have proven skills. You understand computing and computer operating systems, as well as computer networking. Language skills and knowledge of forensic tools such as Xways, Encase, XRY, Cellebrite or Oxygen would be ideal, but it’s more important that you’re able to work outside office hours when investigations are urgent.

It’s possible that some data may reveal potentially distressing material such as child abuse. It’s therefore very important that you understand the nature of the work before you apply for the role.

To apply, click 'Apply' where you will be re-directed to the Met Police careers page to download a role specific information pack and click on the link to complete and submit the online application form and CV.

Completed applications must be submitted by 23.55pm on 14th 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.

Vetting and STRAP

This post requires access to the most sensitive intelligence material on a daily basis. Applicants must hold or be prepared to undergo National Security Vetting (NSV) at either Security Check (enhanced) (SC(e)) or Developed Vetting (DV) level before taking up the post. This role is at SC(e) level, there may be a requirement to complete DV in the future.

Additionally, this material is of particular sensitivity to the UK and its distribution must be restricted to UK nationals. In approved circumstances dual nationals (of which one element is British) may also be granted access. However, in the event that potential conflicts of interest cannot be managed the post holder will not be able to see the intelligence material and will not be able to perform their duties. For the purpose of safeguarding national security and in line with Cabinet Office Policy, supported by Section 82(2) to (4) of the Police Reform Act (2002), applicants who do not hold or acquire Security Check (enhanced) (SC(e)) or Developed Vetting (DV) clearance and meet the nationality requirements cannot be offered the post.
