See your skills make an impact in cases across the capital
To help officers with their cases in the most efficient way, the Met has set up Digital Forensic Hubs at sites across the capital. As Manager of our Digital Hub in either Charing Cross, Wembley or Ilford, you’ll work closely with officers and provide expert forensic analysis. If you want to see the effect of your skills, there’s no better place to be.
Data on mobile phones and computers can provide key evidence to cases. At our well-equipped London Hub, you’ll perform digital forensic examinations of various devices. Your work will help us investigate and prosecute crimes, and you may attend court as an expert witness. You may also have the chance to provide hands-on advice at crime scenes.
Much of your role will involve advising officers on the best way to deal with their submissions. You’ll help to assess the items you’re brought and create suitable forensic strategies. The aim is to achieve a focused and proportionate investigation. If you can see further investigative opportunities, you’ll make recommendations.
This role also gives you the chance to build your management skills. You’ll lead the Hub day-to-day and manage a six-strong team of Technicians and Assistants. The key is to look for ways to make the Hub even more effective: your efforts can play a big part in bringing criminals to justice.
As a Digital Forensic Examiner or Analyst, you’ll have relevant technical qualifications (or equivalent experience). You’ll bring in-depth knowledge of digital forensics plus expertise in digital devices (for example, computers or mobile phones). You’ll also know about the tools we use to recover and analyse digital data. Crucially, you’ll be able to explain technical information to a non-technical audience too. Good communication skills will also help you lead your team and support each individual. If you can bring knowledge of relevant legislation, we can offer you a fascinating role in a critical, fast-paced service.
