Digital Investigator - North East Counter Terrorism Unit, UK

Post Posted: Apr 27, 15 14:53

North East Counter Terrorism Unit are looking to recruit a Digital Investigator to work as part of a small and unique team based in Leeds.

We need you to provide specialist technical advice, interrogate and investigate digital devices to obtain intelligence and evidence and attend Court to give evidence as required.

The ideal candidate will hold a degree in Computer Science/Forensic Computing Studies or an equivalent qualification in digital forensics and/or significant proven relevant experience/training in these fields. Ideally proven experience in the interrogation and exploitation of digital media devices using forensic software and tools, while not essential, would be desirable.

You will possess a thorough working knowledge of common operating systems, applications, basic network technologies and internet technologies, together with an aptitude for problem solving, in a methodical and orderly manner. Any programming or scripting experience, while not essential, would be desirable.

As a Digital Investigator you will be required to pass the core courses in relation to the recovery and analysis of digital evidence, as specified by ACPO. You must be able to work under pressure, make critical decisions, and work to tight schedules and deadlines.

Proven ability to work unsupervised and prioritise your workload is essential, as you will often work under pressure sometimes dealing with distressing or disturbing material.

For this demanding role, you must be able to recognise sensitive information, maintain discretion and confidentiality, and have the physical and emotional resilience to deal with abusive and offensive images of extreme violence, obscenity and depravity.

In addition, you will hold a full UK/European Driving Licence and be ready to travel for business purposes, regionally, nationally & internationally, possibly for extended periods. Applicants must be prepared to work unsociable hours, provide 24 hour cover if necessary and change hours at short notice.

The successful candidate must be a British Citizen and will be subject to enhanced personal and financial vetting checks prior to appointment. For security reasons you should not discuss your application with anyone other than your immediate family.
