Police Staff
Bedfordshire Police Force
Scale 5/6
Full Time
FIMU Intelligence Support Officer – x 1 full time vacancy based at a covert location in Hertfordshire – ERSOU Counter Terrorism Policing

This role is subject to a shift pattern (attached).

ERSOU celebrates diversity and is committed to creating an inclusive environment for all our Officers and Staff. Where possible we will also consider flexible working requests.

An opportunity has arisen for role of a FIMU Intelligence Support Officer within the Fixed Intelligence Management Unit within ERSOU-CTP. Although you will be employed by Bedfordshire Police, the vacancy is located at a covert location in Hertfordshire. Given the nature of the CT effort there may be a requirement to travel throughout the Eastern Region based on operational need.

This is an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated person looking to develop their career, and work within the Counter Terrorism environment. Working alongside officers and staff from the other strands of CONTEST, as well as local partners, you will be part of a small team to provide a research capability in support of IMU business.

Applicants must hold or be prepared to undergo Management Vetting (5 years residency criteria) and Security Clearance (5 years residency criteria) or Development Vetting, if applicable, before taking up the post. Please be aware the Police Corporate Vetting Unit will undertake security vetting on successful candidates, their family and others that live at their home address, which will include financial checks. Due to the sensitive nature of these checks, we are not able to supply feedback should clearance be declined.

This post is designated a ‘reserved post’ under the Civil Service Nationality Rules and is open only to UK Nationals. Anyone holding dual nationality can make an application but may be required to relinquish non-British nationality if successful (and any entitlement you may have to a foreign nationality) as a condition of your confirmation of appointment with CTP. When applying please click Yes to the British Nationality Question in order to progress to the next step of the application process. One of your parents should also be British or have substantial ties to the UK. In the latter instance; substantial ties means that your parent is a citizen of a British Overseas Territory, a Commonwealth citizen, US citizen, EEA citizen, British national or citizen overseas, and they would need to have demonstrable connections with the UK by way of family history or have been resident here for a substantial period of time.

If you’re already married to, or cohabiting with, a person who isn’t a British citizen, you may still be eligible for employment at the discretion of the department. You should note however, that marriage to, or cohabitation with, a person who isn’t a British citizen after appointment may, in some circumstances, result in the withdrawal of security clearance and subsequent transfer to another department, or (if this is not possible or the officer does not wish to transfer) dismissal. Each case will be considered on its merits, taking into account the ties between the person involved and the United Kingdom.

You will be expected to provide written evidence around the following competencies and the minimum entry requirements from the role profile:
- We are emotionally aware
- We take ownership
- We deliver, support and inspire

Please note there is a 500 words limit for each competency.
