An opportunity has arisen for PC roles in JLAR within ERSOU-CTP based in Hertfordshire.


One role is for an immediate vacancy, with other vacancies confirmed in the near future. Applicants who pass the interview stage will be placed in a pool for the projected vacancies.


The main responsibility of the role is to manage specific intelligence investigations to identify to assess the risk to National Security. The case load mitigates threats from Islamic and Domestic Terrorism across the 6 forces of the Eastern Region and the post holder is required to liaise with colleagues and partners utilising a variety of overt and covert tactics to reach a resolution.


An additional priority responsibility will be supporting the management of a large cadre of previous subjects of National Security interest. This will involve ensuring protocols are in place and legislation is followed to monitor signs of re-engagement, identifying any increase in THR and to trigger escalation of case management in line with national and regional standard operating procedures.


This role provides excellent personal development opportunities including the trainee investigator programme and additional specialist Counter Terrorism support roles.


This is a really exciting opportunity that requires a highly motivated person looking to develop their career and work within a very rewarding departing in the Counter Terrorism environment.


The post holder will be required to join the ERSOU CTP on-call rota and have a full UK driving licence with potential to travel around the Eastern region and the UK on operational requirements.


Applicants must hold or be prepared to undergo Management Vetting (5 years residency criteria), Security Clearance (5 years residency criteria) and Development Vetting before taking up the post. This will be conducted by the Police Corporate Vetting Unit who will undertake security vetting on successful candidates, their family and others that live at their home address, which will include financial checks. Due to the sensitive nature of these checks, we are not able to supply feedback should clearance be declined.


This post is designated a ‘reserved post’ under the Civil Service Nationality Rules and is open only to UK Nationals. Anyone holding dual nationality can make an application but may be required to relinquish non-British nationality if successful (and any entitlement you may have to a foreign nationality) as a condition of your confirmation of appointment with CTP. When applying please click Yes to the British Nationality Question in order to progress to the next step of the application process. One of your parents should also be British or have substantial ties to the UK. In the latter instance; substantial ties means that your parent is a citizen of a British Overseas Territory, a Commonwealth citizen, US citizen, EEA citizen, British national or citizen overseas, and they would need to have demonstrable connections with the UK by way of family history or have been resident here for a substantial period of time.


If you’re already married to, or cohabiting with, a person who isn’t a British citizen, you may still be eligible for employment at the discretion of the department. You should note however, that marriage to, or cohabitation with, a person who isn’t a British citizen after appointment may, in some circumstances, result in the withdrawal of security clearance and subsequent transfer to another department, or (if this is not possible or the officer does not wish to transfer) dismissal. Each case will be considered on its merits, taking into account the ties between the person involved and the United Kingdom.


The successful candidate must be able to demonstrate competence in their current role and be able to demonstrate excellent organisational, communication and partnership working skills. You will be expected to provide written evidence around the following competencies and the minimum entry requirements from the role profile;


We take ownership

We are collaborative

We analyse critically


There is 500 words limit for each competency.
