You’ll make our evidence clearer.
And our cases stronger.

London is a city like no other. With nearly 9 million residents covering 620 square miles, policing our capital is a complex challenge. In the Digital, Cyber and Communications (DCC) team, we play a crucial part in the Met’s success. Our talented specialists look at all aspects of digital evidence – from its attainment and analysis, right through to presentation.

Based in our Central Digital Forensic Laboratory, you’ll maximise the potential of all evidence. To do this, you’ll collaborate with police officers, and work across a huge range of devices –everything from CCTV recorders, phones and cameras, to cutting edge and legacy video formats. It’s about recovering data from damaged systems, reverse engineering file formats and enhancing imagery.

Not only that, you’ll also create efficient compilations of material, and insightful forensic reports to be used in court. You might even be called on to give expert testimony – directly impacting the outcome of high-profile cases. A credible individual, we may also ask you to oversee and lead a small team of forensic staff. And with an eye on the future, you’ll conduct research into novel techniques – anticipating demands and looking at how to evolve our services.

To join, you must have a degree in a relevant technical discipline and/or significant relevant experience. You’ll have knowledge of video engineering principles and forensic techniques. Calm, determined and forward thinking, you’ll thrive under pressure and enjoy working at a fast pace. And, as a natural problem solver, you’ll think creatively – always spotting opportunities to improve. Importantly, you’ll have excellent communication skills, along with ability to translate technical terms to a non-technical audience. Plus, you’ll be a confident figure in court, giving authoritative statements.

To apply, please visit our website to download a role specific information pack and click on the link to complete and submit the online application form. You will also be required to submit a detailed CV.

Please submit your completed application form and detailed CV by 23.55pm on Friday 9th February 2018.

Failure to supply all the relevant documents will result in your application being terminated.

We view diversity as fundamental to our success. To tackle today’s complex policing challenges, we need a workforce made up from all of London’s communities. Applications from across the community are therefore essential.
