Job Description

North Yorkshire Police are currently seeking a conscientious, dedicated, and inquiring individual for the permanent position of Deputy Technical Manager, working within our Digital Forensic Unit based at HQ Alverton Court, Northallerton.

The Digital Forensics Unit is responsible for the examination of devices pertaining to the investigation of cases involving the making, possession, and distribution of indecent images of children. Additionally, the team provides vital support in other investigations where accessing information from digital devices is required.

You will work under the direction of the Technical Manager and be a supporting lead in the DFU providing technical expertise and skills in completing tasks relevant to the implementation and maintenance of the Quality Management System (QMS) held by North Yorkshire Police to ensure compliance with the appropriate standards (ISO 17025, FSR CoPC and ILAC G19).

You will be responsible for assisting in the development and maintenance of technical standard operating procedures (SOP’s) and validation techniques within the function. You will also conduct, oversee and peer review technical reports produced within the DFU and products from external forensic providers. 

You will develop and maintain validation and test/calibration processes to ensure all equipment and methods used in the lab are fit for purpose and ensure the competency of technical staff by identifying training needs, performing mentoring as required, and documenting evidenced competency assessment.  

Due to the nature of the role, you must possess physical and emotional resilience to be able to deal with abusive and offensive imagery of extreme violence, obscenity, and depravity on a regular basis, therefore the successful candidate will be required to undergo regular psychological assessments.
