Would you like the opportunity to contribute to the fight against serious and organised crime?

What do you know about the application of Forensic disciplines in the fight against Serious and Organised Crime? If you are intrigued by complex and sophisticated techniques together with technological challenges in a forensic environment, keep reading. At the National Crime Agency, we need people like you who are excited about creating an unrivalled Forensic capability that meets the challenges in our modern day fight against Serious and Organised Crime. Deploying the latest technology, capabilities and techniques in conjunction with your knowledge and expertise you will operate at the high end of risk in support of NCA operational activity.

As the complexity of electronic devices increases there is a requirement to engineer increasingly complex solutions in order to extract the data stored within them. We are seeking candidates who are experienced with electronic engineering principles and the use of rework, repair and diagnostic equipment to facilitate the extraction and presentation of data from devices seized during NCA activity. The successful candidate will be required to develop techniques and methods to extract data from a wide range of devices and be prepared to present their findings as a witness in criminal proceedings. This will be a diverse and rewarding role, with many opportunities for personal development, including relevant training and collaboration with peers in UK and international Agencies.

Your day will include, but not limited to the following:
- Developing existing services and technical capabilities;
- Research and investigate new technologies and consider their suitability for current and future Digital Forensic technical projects;
- Lead and coordinate engineering and development projects;
- Manage relationships with internal and external partners, across government and industry to support and enhance their technical capabilities;
- Managing, coaching and developing staff;
- Developing working practices and operating procedures in line with international accreditation standards (ISO 17025 and 17020) and the Forensic Science Regulators Codes of Practice and Conduct;
- Providing advice on legislation, policy, tactical options and evidential opportunities; and
- Producing formal reports as required, to inform and progress deliverable intrusive technical strategies.

Technical Criteria

- Knowledge of electronic engineering principles and PCB level repair;
- Knowledge of computer and mobile communications forensics technology; and
- Experience in software development in Windows, Linux and/or Micro-processor based mobile devices, network communications security and protocols, hardware diagnostics and reverse engineering.

Essential Qualifications/Skills

- HND/HNC in Electronics, Computer Science or equivalent technical qualification with relevant experience; and
- Demonstrable experience in report writing and performance monitoring to a high standard.

All officers in the NCA are members of the UK Civil Service. You will be eligible for:
- Civil Service pension scheme;
- 26 days annual leave rising to 31 on completion of 5 years continuous service;
- Training and development opportunities;
- Childcare voucher scheme;
- Cycle2work scheme;
- We take the welfare of NCA officers very seriously. All staff have access to Occupational Health services and there are a number of staff representative groups. We also have a range of sporting and other activities on offer; and
- We can provide flexible working arrangements if the role in question is suitable. These include flexitime, job sharing and compressed hours (working contracted hours over a shorter period).

Salary: The salary band for this position is £33,286 to £38,283. Where existing Civil Servants apply on transfer to the NCA at the equivalent grade, pay principles on Civil Service transfers will apply. All other salary offers will be made within the advertised band.

This role is open to External candidates & Civil Servants on lateral & promotion basis.
