Careers

 

A career in Counter Terrorism Policing is like no other with specialist roles spanning the UK and overseas.

Digital Specialist – Hardware

Salary: £38,531 to £43,127 plus £2,930 location allowance.

Location: West Brompton, London

Closing date: 1 October 2018

Today’s criminals and terrorists are more technically advanced than ever. As their methods change and evolve, Law Enforcement agencies must keep pace with digital progress to anticipate and neutralise threats. This pioneering work happens within TIDE, our Technical Innovation & Development Environment. And it’s here that you’ll be innovating as a Digital Specialist in Hardware.

In this uniquely challenging setting, you’ll use your skills to help prevent terrorist attacks. If the worst happens and an attack occurs, you’ll be helping to bring the perpetrators to justice. As a Digital Hardware Specialist, you’ll provide both tactical and strategic solutions to support counter-terrorism operations, working in a team with other software, hardware and cyber specialists. Together, you’ll create bespoke solutions, and also plan and prepare for emerging technological challenges. Your role could see you working with security partners both at home and abroad – and even supporting operations directly. You must therefore be prepared for extensive travel within the UK and further afield.

This exciting and varied work calls for a degree (or equivalent) in a related subject or experience in hardware exploit methodologies. Your expertise will cover some of the following areas:

  • Hardware Reverse Engineering (understanding technical documentation, specialist imaging/investigative techniques etc)
  • Chip off and chip on
  • Data recovery from damaged devices
  • Developing techniques for acquiring chip data (eMMC, UFS, SoC, NAND etc)
  • Data recovery
  • Bootloader Modification

The only way to protect the country from the fast evolving terrorist threat is by working together to meet the next technological challenge. You will therefore need the people skills to collaborate with experts from policing, government, academia, industry and the intelligence services.
