Build the digital forensics capability of the future
Digital forensics is one of the fastest-growing areas of Forensic Services and vital in all kinds of cases. As its role at the Met grows, we're transforming our services to create a new era of digital investigative capability. We now need a Head of Digital, Cyber & Communications (DCC) to re-define this critical forensic area, innovate and lead it into the future. Join us, and be at the forefront of a major development in the UK's biggest police service.
By shaping this key function, you'll be part of the digital evolution in police investigations. You'll influence Forensic Services, the wider Met and national thinking. What's more, you'll help us adapt to the changing profile of criminality in London. By investing in our forensics, particularly digital forensics, we're working for our capital city and its many communities.
A member of the senior leadership team, you'll develop the delivery of digital forensic services. You'll lead on a strategic level, but also be responsible for day to day operations. You'll drive change programmes, work with stakeholders including industry leaders and devise a long-term people strategy to build a skilled and talented workforce. You'll also represent the Met on the national and international stage, influencing the implementation of standards and accreditation.
We don't just want experience in forensics. We're looking for a professional who aspires to create the very best digital tools through research and development. You'll be driven by the need to provide the best possible support for criminal justice and victims of crime. As a proven leader, you'll have the strategic vision and hands-on management skills to make progress happen. Articulate, degree-educated and adept at building links with commerce and academia, you can lead teams through change and connect with all kinds of people.
We're also looking for a clear view of the national digital forensics landscape and detailed knowledge of your field. You'll know about accreditation requirements for ISO17025 and codes of practice and conduct.
