Associate Cyber Forensic Investigator, Cyber Forensics, Enforcement and Market Oversight
The salary range will be approximately 33,500 to 65,000 GBP plus a competitive benefits package and non-contributory pension.

At the FCA, we're creating a fair and more resilient financial system. We're establishing more transparent relationships between financial services and their customers, building trust in financial markets and protecting vulnerable consumers.

The Enforcement & Market Oversight Division (EMO) investigates and brings disciplinary action, civil cases and criminal prosecutions, on behalf of the FCA with the aim of achieving credible deterrence by changing behaviour in the financial services industry in accordance with FCA objectives. The division also coordinates and supports the work of the whole of the FCA in order to reduce financial crime and ensure adherence to regulatory requirements.

EMO plays a key role in supporting the FCA's desire to identify potential problems at an early stage, and take steps to avert them. Our work is high profile, and a critical aspect of the FCA's approach.

Cyber Forensics is part of the Strategy, Policy, International & Intelligence within the Enforcement & Market Oversight Directorate. We are made up of specialist investigators in digital forensics and eDiscovery. Our duties include:

Management of digital evidence for Enforcement casework, including development of case strategies
Analysis and investigation of digital evidence in accordance with ACPO guidelines
Management of the evidence review platform
Developing policy and expertise in digital forensics and eDiscovery
What does this job involve?
Due to team expansion we have vacancies for Cyber Forensics Investigators in the Cyber Forensics team. This is an operational role, working as part of a team to support the day-to-day work required to deliver services to the rest of the Division.

Detailed forensic analysis of digital evidence for use in regulatory and criminal proceedings
Writing of witness statements and reports

Provision of first line support to the evidence review platform including password resets and general troubleshooting
Liaising with internal and external stakeholders
Within this role you will need to show to the Division continuous improvement and a focus on service to case teams which will be measured by obtaining feedback on a regular basis. You will have strong communication skills in order to liaise on technical issues within both the Cyber Forensic team and case investigation teams.

What will I get from the role?
This role would be ideally suited to someone looking to advance their career having spent time in their first role in digital forensics. You will have a rare opportunity to understand and shape the workings of the financial sector at a time of considerable change. You will enjoy a unique aerial view of the financial services industry, with the opportunity to do meaningful work that makes a real difference.
