A “Busy, Interesting, Different” Career

A career in Counter Terrorism Policing is like no other. Each and every role works in partnership to help confront terrorist threats, whilst thriving to keep the public safe.

The national network stretches across the UK and sees the employment of specialist officers and staff, who work around the clock to thwart terrorist planning and bring perpetrators to justice.

In short, roles in Counter Terrorism can save lives.

“Evil triumphs when good people do nothing. I work with thousands of people – who get up every day to do something to rid the world of this evil. They don’t need to be motivated to save lives and they are often running towards the danger that most of the time none of you can see.”

 Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, Counter Terrorism Policing

Counter Terrorism Policing is currently working on a record number of more than 800 investigations. Investigative leads have doubled, caseloads are up 22%, surveillance is at full stretch on critical targets and the amount of digital data to find and wade through has grown significantly.

The network are recruiting for a variety of roles from posts in the digital field, intelligence, operational and many more.

“A lot of what you do you will never be able to talk about, but you will quietly make a difference and the one operation you partake in or that one piece of intelligence you gather; could make all the difference and prevent serious loss of life, damage to critical infrastructure, disrupt activity…and ultimately make our country and it citizens feel safe and protected – who would not want to do that!”
