Help put data exploitation at the heart of our fight against 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

By joining us in National Data Exploitation Capability (NDEC), you'll become part of the UK's national security capabilities focused on tackling the greatest threats to the UK population and interests through the use of data exploitation and data science.

This is your chance to join a fast-paced team in a varied role that offers plenty of scope for learning and development. As a Data Engineer, you'll develop data products of varying complexity to support data-driven operational activities right across the NCA. Your responsibilities will include gathering

data from a variety of sources, managing large datasets, and identifying and managing data requirements to create a usable, best practice data product. You'll need to design and optimise the implementation of data flows to connect operational systems, data services and transformation for analytics and Business Intelligence systems. Your role will also involve manipulating large datasets to solve analytical challenges and provide support to intelligence-led enforcement activity. Beyond your technical skills, we'll be looking for you to line manage, support and mentor other technical colleagues.

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

We're looking for someone with the ability to drive change and improvements. You'll bring experience of cleansing, preparing and formatting complex data sets, and of designing scalable, futureproof data services. Your experience should also encompass creating or developing data modelling to support analytical functions within the business, and you'll have experience of maintaining a gold standard ETL pipeline.

If you also have a relevant degree, a postgraduate qualification or data engineering certifications, and a knowledge of cloud-based analytical platforms, that would be ideal.


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.
