Counter Terrorism Crime Scene Investigator | Counter Terrorism Policing

Counter Terrorism Crime Scene Investigator

Our Counter Terrorism Policing South East (CTP SE) Forensic Management Team formulate and implement forensic strategies to service the needs of highly sensitive, covert and overt counter terrorism operations.

In this exciting role, you will manage covert and overt exhibits and conduct forensic examinations in support of CTPSE investigations for the South East and West regions.

You will attend terrorism-related incidents and provide professional advice on forensic examinations of related premises, vehicle and locations to ensure forensic strategy is delivered.

You will have excellent communication, numeracy and literacy skills. Successful completion of the CSI Stage 1 and Stage 2 Course is essential to the role.

CTP SE are committed to becoming the most diverse team in the South East. We encourage interest and applications from candidates of all backgrounds and particularly welcome applications from female and BAME (black, Asian and minority ethic) candidates to enable us to truly reflect the communities we serve.

Due to the role requirements, it is essential that the post holder be prepared to be security cleared to enhanced vetting level. Furthermore, due to the nature and sensitivity of work carried out we require that candidates not only hold this vetting level but that they also undertake additional security clearances which include additional nationality checks. This post is therefore restricted to UK nationals. This is line with government requirements, supported by Cabinet Office policy and Section 82(2) to (4) of the Police Reform Act (2002), and is for the purpose of safeguarding national security, to ensure that any potential vulnerabilities are identified at an early stage.

The successful candidate will be asked to undergo psychological screening checks.

This role is part of a national, regional and local network and as a result you will be required to travel for business purposes. This may include travel across the UK and is not limited to the south east. You will be asked to demonstrate flexibility regarding working hours in line with operational demand and occasionally this may require working away from home. For this reason a full UK Driving Licence is essential to the role.
