Counter Terrorism Security Advisor | Counter Terrorism Policing

Counter Terrorism Security Advisor

An excellent opportunity has arisen to play a key role in a unique team, supporting the work of Counter Terror Policing.

In this role you will promote good practice in protective security at the customer level, support the Head of Counter Terrorism Unit in Counter Terrorism matters in line with the Anti-Terrorism Crime and Security Act 2001, and respond to nationally tasked initiatives from Government Office through the National Counter Terrorism Security Office.

You will be required to have an in-depth knowledge of national and local issues impacting on the Police Services and particularly Counter Terrorism issues, as well as having previous experience of working within a Counter Terrorist/Special Branch or Covert environment.

You must be prepared to work flexible hours to suit the CTP requirements and should be willing to work within the UK wherever required as part of a Regional and National response.

Please note that the successful candidate will be subject to Enhanced level personal and financial vetting checks prior to appointment. You must be a British citizen and eligible to hold a British passport to work in the CTP NE. For security reasons you should not discuss your application with anyone other than your immediate family.

Applicants should be aware that it is not always possible to carry out adequate vetting checks on persons who have not been resident within the UK for the last five years. Therefore, where this applies, applicants may be refused on the grounds that it was not possible to vet them to the appropriate standard.
