An exciting opportunity has arisen for an individual to undertake the role of Digital Forensic Analyst within the Kent and Essex Digital Forensics Unit at Essex Force HQ Chelmsford.

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.

We are looking for an enthusiastic individual who can demonstrate technical ability, including knowledge of computer hardware, software and PC architecture, operating systems and principles of data storage. You will have at least 3 years’ recent experience within a Digital Forensic service provider (law enforcement or private sector), to include experience of the leading digital forensic tools currently employed nationally. You will also have experience of writing technical statements/reports and may have given evidence at court.

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 computer programming experience, and that you have an understanding of the quality standard ISO 17025, and how it affects the role.

To balance these technical attributes, you will need to be a highly motivated team player with good interpersonal skills and the ability to communicate effectively verbally and in writing. 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.

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 for further information regarding the role on 01622 654783 or Russell Leach on 01622 654789.
