Are you an investigator looking for an opportunity to take ownership of complex investigations and make difference to the lives of vulnerable victims?

There are currently a number of vacancies in the Sexual Offence Investigation Team where investigators work alongside DCs to investigate serious, indictable offences. The vacancies are all within our Investigation Team.

SOIT investigations have to be thorough and often extensive, but in return our staff get to take complete ownership of cases and quickly gain experience.

DCI Neil Langford, Head of Protecting Adults, said: “We are looking for individuals with a proven record of investigating to join this committed but friendly and welcoming team.”
“Many of the victims dealt with by the unit are vulnerable or have suffered an extremely traumatic experience. They have been brave enough to come forward to report what has happened and we want to repay that trust with justice for them.”
“There is a massive opportunity for a professional, compassionate investigator to make a genuine difference not only to their lives, but also to their friends, family and other people connected with the case, including the suspect.”

“This is an exciting opportunity to join our team as an A4 Investigator, either within one of our frontline investigation teams. These roles will provide you with the opportunity to make a difference, as well as to obtain satisfaction from delivering justice”

Why work in SOIT?
• Specialist training to perform the role.
• Ownership of complex investigations into indictable offences.
• Fast development of a broad and highly transferable range of investigation skills.
• Serious Sexual Offence investigation accreditation and close work with RASSO CPS lawyers.
