Transform the way we pursue serious and organised crime.

Human traffickers, firearms and drugs dealers, cybercriminals and exploiters of children - at the NCA, we work at the cutting-edge of law enforcement, tackling those posing the most serious threat to UK life.

Now, more than ever, serious and organised criminals are finding new and more ruthless ways to prey on vulnerable people and the wider public. And as the crime landscape continues to evolve, so do we. Our teams work creatively and collaboratively to find new and unexpected ways to stay ahead. Join them and your work will have a serious impact as you help us protect millions of people across the UK.  

Your role

As a Data Engineer, you'll develop new ways to identify and pursue serious organised criminality. It's a challenging and stimulating role at the very heart of the NCA, in which you'll join a multi-functional team from our Centre of Data Excellence (CoDE), solving critical operational problems as well as spearheading data innovation. As you deliver data analysis solutions, you'll also take part in specific strategic projects, provide expert advice across the NCA, and represent us at national and international forums.

You may also be expected to work directly or indirectly in tackling child sexual exploitation and abuse. This may involve exposure to child sexual abuse images and material, so please consider the sensitive nature of our work before deciding to apply.

Your background

You'll have considerable expertise in data science and data management. You'll also have expertise in programming, data business intelligence tools, Extract Transform Load (ETL) and Application Programmable Interface (API) technologies. You'll be confident in designing data management systems in a variety of programming languages as well as creating secure, reliable and automated data services. You may also have previous intelligence experience or a STEM degree, but this isn't essential.

We're also looking for people who are excellent communicators with a strategic, collaborative mindset. You'll be flexible and open to new ideas, able to constantly change and improve your ways of working while making effective decisions. You should also have strong stakeholder management skills.


We take your career and development seriously and want to help you build a truly successful career with us and the wider Civil Service. So, we'll make sure you receive the right training, guidance and coaching as well as regular performance and development reviews. What's more, as a Civil Service employee you're also entitled to a large range of benefits, including generous annual leave, flexible working, a contributory pension, staff bonuses and recognition, volunteering days, childcare vouchers and other salary sacrifice options, and an employee discount scheme.

The breadth of our capabilities means there's no such thing as a typical NCA officer. We recruit people from virtually every walk of life, from police to project management, crime analysis and commercial procurement. Join us and we'll give you the powers, time and resources to see cases through, as well as high-profile experience to add to your record. On top of this, you'll get to work at the heart of law enforcement response and deal with the biggest threats to national security.

Closing Date: 6th July 2020
