UK Forensics Recruiting -Challenging??


I'm looking to get the views of the community from organisations (LE or private) who have recently attempted to recruit practitioners within digital forensics, particularly in the UK.

Looking at the job vacancies page I can't remember a time in the last 8 years where there have been so many job opportunities and vacancies.

What is the community's experience of trying to recruit experienced forensic practitioners?

Have people been swamped with experienced candidates or have they had difficulties in recruiting?

Will the amount of vacancies make it harder to recruit?

Hi All
There is a huge opportunity for this in Africa. I am an Msc Forensics and Security graduate hoping to setup a consultancy in Ghana.

if anyone wants to partner he or she is welcome. I know this may sound crazy but the chances here are better than Europe where firms are just not hiring.

I have moved back from the UK after graduation and hoping to do this but I can't do it alone.
Let me know if you are interested as you can always bail if you think it is a waste of time but I don't know of any Forensics Lab in West Africa and that's how large the market is here.

Get in touch at [email protected] if you are interested

I think the number of high profile security breaches has caused a sudden massive uptake of staff, and thats caused a sort of dry spell within the industry. We've certainly seen an increase in positions.
