National Crime Agency - G4 Borders Coordination Team Senior Officer - Threat Leadership

Description

London

About the job
Summary

As part of the national NCA Borders Threat team, this post is based in London.
You will be expected to build and develop partnerships, both within the NCA and externally, for intelligence and operational purposes, to help develop and direct activities that prevent serious and organised criminals (SOC) from exploiting vulnerabilities at the border. Ideally you will have a background in law enforcement work at the border, and you will be expected to develop subject matter expertise in one of the following modes or vulnerabilities exploited by SOC at the border - passenger; roll on/roll off; containers; general maritime; general aviation; fast parcels and post; Common Travel Area or corruption at the border.

As part of the Borders Threat team, your role will be to help develop the national understanding of the serious and organised crime threat that exploits vulnerabilities at the border, which will in turn help improve our collective understanding of the picture of the threat impacting the UK border; planning and coordination of multi-agency intensification exercises, to support partnership working and confirm or challenge our collective understanding of the SOC threat at the border.

This role acts as a 'bridge' between operational awareness and developing a strategic understanding of the SOC threat exploiting border vulnerabilities, so would be ideal for someone who is looking to develop a strategic skillset to support their operational experience.



You will be required to work closely with internal and external partners, to develop and improve our collective understanding of the SOC threat exploiting vulnerabilities at the border. As well as building relationships, you will also be required to prepare reports for senior managers, articulating the threat and any mitigating activity being planned to counter the SOC threat. You will need a broad understanding of the serious and organised crime threats impacting the UK and how Organised Crime Groups (OCGs) may seek to avoid border controls to transport their illicit goods.
Going forward, you will be expected to become a subject matter expert in one of the modes of travel across the border or an enabler of SOC exploitation at the border and may be required to provide presentations or liaison with private sector stakeholders.
Responsibilities
You will have previous experience of working at the border - perhaps within Border Force or HMRC? As part of the role may require deployment operationally, it would also be desirable if you had powers of a constable, Border Force officer or HMRC or, alternatively, have an understanding of intelligence handling. You will have a good understanding of UK legislation affecting law enforcement activity, particularly around safeguarding the border and a broad understanding of how international organised criminality impacts the UK border.
All NCA officers must hold SC Enhanced upon entry as a minimum. To meet the National Security Vetting requirements for this role you will need to have resided in the UK for a minimum of 3 out of the past 5 years. For more information please see the Candidate information Pack.
