Prevent Officer – Band 3G

Contract type – Full Time

Salary – £30,175

Information about the role

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a CT Case Officer (CTCO) to work within the Counter Terrorism Unit South East (CTP SE) under the Prevent Strand of the United Kingdom’s Counter-Terrorism strategy (CONTEST).  You will be connecting CT policing, neighbourhood policing and communities to stop individuals being exploited by extremists; working with local authority partners and community organisations to help find solutions and work to support and protect people vulnerable to radicalisation.

The core responsibilities of a CTCO fall with three main categories: Case Management (including management of risk, supportive activities & disruptive activities), Engagement, and Police Support.

Prevent CTCO’s play a key role in assessing if cases are suitable for Local Authority led management and refer cases to a Channel Coordinator.  Coordinating between different organisations is an important part of this work, so a strong safeguarding background would be advantageous.

You will explore opportunities to be considered for investigation or prosecution of individuals of interest for non-TACT offences to undermine their status/credibility, limiting their activity and provide disruptive capacity to CT Policing-led operations.

As a subject matter expert you will get the opportunity to support front line staff, acting as community contact for any counter terrorism consequence management as well as coordinating the delivery of Prevent / training across the wider policing family.

Strong communication skills and proven risk management ability are essential for this role.  You will be supported by a team of highly skilled and trained CTCO’s.

Please note that this role is part of a national, regional and local network and as a result you may be required to travel for business purposes mainly across the south east region and occasionally throughout the UK. Therefore, the successful candidate will require a full UK driving licence.

Due to the nature of our work, security is of paramount importance to us and therefore it will be necessary to pass and maintain vetting level SC.  In order to achieve this, you must be a British National and have resided in the UK for the past five years. Exemptions apply for overseas or other diplomatic service (with HM Government), and studying abroad.
