ERSOU CTP/ROCU - Support Services Administrator

Location: Other
Role: Police Staff
Department: ERSOU / ROCU & CT Support Services
Closing Date: 28-04-19
We currently have a vacancy for a ‘Support Services Administrator’ to work within the ‘Support Services Team’ offering administrative support to both the ROCU and CTP.

Ideally the successful applicant will have a strong customer service ethos, excellent communication skills and experience in an administrative supporting role, with a good working knowledge of Word & Excel. They will be required to attend meetings to record actions and updates.

The Eastern Region Special Operations Unit (ERSOU) was formed in April 2010 and ERSOU operates on behalf of the six Chief Constables and the six Police and Crime Commissioners for the Eastern region as well as a number of functions now covering Kent. With an establishment of over 700 officers and staff ERSOU delivers specialist policing capabilities through its two commands – the Regional Organised Crime Unit (ROCU) and, since the 1st July 2017, the Counter Terrorism Policing (CTP) Command and through a shared command structure under the direction and control of Bedfordshire Police as lead force.

The ROCU delivers the following capabilities in response to counter the threat from serious and organised crime: Regional Intelligence Unit, Regional Asset Recovery Team, Regional Protected Person Unit, Regional GAIN Coordinator, Regional Cyber and eCrime Unit, Regional Confidential Unit, Regional Investigation Teams, Regional Undercover Unit, Regional Specialist Support Unit, Regional OPSY, Regional Prison Intelligence Unit, Regional Economic Crime Unit.

The capabilities and functions delivered through the new regional CTP Command include Pursue (Intelligence and Investigations), Protect & Prepare, Prevent and CT Borders Policing and it provides the critical link between local policing and the wider CT network. This ensures that as a region we are best placed to deliver against the National Policing Counter-Terrorism Strategy ‘Keeping People Safe from Terrorism’ and the Eastern Region Counter Terrorism Strategy.

All applications must be received by the closing date.

Applicants must hold or be prepared to undergo Management Vetting (5 years residency criteria) and Security Clearance (5 years residency criteria) or Development Vetting, if applicable, before taking up the post. Please be aware the Police Corporate Vetting Unit will undertake security vetting on successful candidates, their family and others that live at their home address, which will include financial checks. Due to the sensitive nature of these checks, we are not able to supply feedback should clearance be declined.

This post is designated a ‘reserved post’ under the Civil Service Nationality Rules and is open only to UK Nationals. Anyone holding dual nationality can make an application but may be required to relinquish non-British nationality if successful (and any entitlement you may have to a foreign nationality) as a condition of your confirmation of appointment with CTP. When applying please click Yes to the British Nationality Question in order to progress to the next step of the application process. One of your parents should also be British or have substantial ties to the UK. In the latter instance; substantial ties means that your parent is a citizen of a British Overseas Territory, a Commonwealth citizen, US citizen, EEA citizen, British national or citizen overseas, and they would need to have demonstrable connections with the UK by way of family history or have been resident here for a substantial period of time.

If you’re already married to, or cohabiting with, a person who isn’t a British citizen, you may still be eligible for employment at the discretion of the department. You should note however, that marriage to, or cohabitation with, a person who isn’t a British citizen after appointment may, in some circumstances, result in the withdrawal of security clearance and subsequent transfer to another department, or (if this is not possible or the officer does not wish to transfer) dismissal. Each case will be considered on its merits, taking into account the ties between the person involved and the United Kingdom.

You will be expected to provide written evidence around the following competencies and the minimum entry requirements from the role profile:
- We are emotionally aware
- We take ownership
- We are collaborative

Please note there is a 500 words limit for each competency.
