Secure the infrastructure that keeps our country secure.
Counter Terrorism Policing (CTP) is an alliance of UK police forces who work closely with security and intelligence agencies to prevent, deter and investigate acts of terrorism. Our ICT division provides UK police forces with the collaborative systems and tools they need to work together seamlessly, in order to prevent or disrupt terrorist activities and prosecute those who undertake them.
As Architecture Demand Lead, this means managing and implementing tactical, short-term requests, which ultimately support public safety and national security. Leading a small team of staff and contractors within the Architecture/Design team, these requests will primarily involve moves and changes of physical infrastructure.
You'll lead the technical scoping, planning and delivery of all projects and work packages, provide technical support, advice and guidance to CT staff, and represent the team at senior stakeholder meetings.
To succeed, you'll need experience covering everything from practical ICT support to the secure delivery, installation and decommissioning of desktops, infrastructure and communications equipment. Technically astute when planning, implementing or supporting, you're also confident assisting in the writing of technology user guides and policies. As an expert communicator, you deal with any role or rank within the Police Service and Government Partners effectively, communicating technical and non-technical issues clearly to everyone.
You'll also need a wide knowledge of CT and ICT standards, frameworks and policies, such as SO15 and MPS ICT technologies and systems, Government Security Classification (GSC) levels, CPNI standards and policies, and Cryptography and Key administration.
To ensure the UK remains safe, Counter Terrorism Policing must constantly evolve. This is your chance to work on new and ever-changing projects, systems and processes of national significance and importance.
Please note: this role is based in London but requires some UK travel. If you're successful in your application, you must be willing to undergo security clearance at DV level.
