Kent & Essex Police - Digital Forensic Analysts
Location: Kent Police HQ, Maidstone, Kent, UK
Salary: £31,041
Permanent: Full Time

Kent & Essex Police Digital Forensics Unit are looking to recruit a number of Digital Forensic Analysts based at the Kent Police HQ in Maidstone, Kent.

Job Summary

Digital Forensics is a fast-moving and exciting area of business. The Kent and Essex Digital Forensics Unit (DFU) has a reputation for innovation and excellence, leading the way in developing cutting edge forensic techniques for modern policing in the digital age.

Digital devices and information communication technology are present in almost every investigation the Police Service undertakes. These range from complex corporate computer networks and high capacity server/workstations, to mobile phone handsets, games consoles, digital CCTV systems and satellite navigation.

The increased demand for digital forensic services has resulted in an innovative re-structure of DFU to improve resilience, which includes growth in analytical posts.

We are looking for enthusiastic individuals who can demonstrate technical ability, including knowledge of computer hardware, software and PC architecture. Ideally you will have a hands-on IT support background with proven trouble-shooting and fault-finding skills. Alternatively you may have coding and operating system experience or be a recent graduate in a forensic computing discipline. All posts will be based at Kent Police Headquarters,

The role involves the collection, extraction, interpretation and presentation of digital evidence in support of criminal investigations. This encompasses many technical and non-technical disciplines such as forensic data recovery, analysis of digital evidence, composition of technical reports, planning the execution of search warrants, assisting with suspects’ interviews and presenting evidence in court. It is desirable but not essential that you have
knowledge in the following areas:

• Software development and programming languages
• Operating systems and principals of data storage
• Use of EnCase and XRY digital forensic software

To balance these technical attributes, you will need to be a highly motivated team player with excellent written and oral skills. You will have the ability to manage a high caseload and must have the flexibility to adapt to this dynamic area of modern police work.

In this role you will be dealing with highly sensitive and distressing information which requires you to have a high degree of emotional resilience. You will also be required to work to tight deadlines and be able to multi-task, dealing with competing demands.

You will be required to take part in a weekend working rota in order for DFU to provide a 7-day analytical service. When all posts are filled, this will equate to working approximately 1 in 10 weekends.

This recruitment process consists of 3 stages, which includes a technical test.

Vetting to Security Clearance level is required for this post.

Interested applicants are encouraged to contact Chris Crute or Russell Leach for further information regarding the role by emailing digital.forensics @ kent.pnn.police.uk.

The deadline for applications is 4pm on 9th February 2016.
