The threat from Serious and Organised Crime (SOC) remains a national security priority. Those involved in Serious Organised Crime have a corrosive impact on the fabric and cohesion of our communities, they ruin lives, sponsor and drive other crime and instil fear through violence and intimidation; in extreme cases they drive out innocent people and legitimate business and undermine the legitimacy of the rule of law. Motivated largely by money; their gain is others' misery.

You must be able to demonstrate proven experience in partnership working and delivering successful outcomes both in the short and medium term, with a sound understanding of the National Serious Organised Crime Strategy and 4xP Principles of Pursue, Prevent, Protect and Prepare strands. You will be able to understand analytical data and interpret facts to identify key threat areas then identify and deliver opportunities for interventions. You will be able to demonstrate your experience in successful community engagement projects.
You will be required to work flexibly to suit business needs within Bradford, with occasional and travel to the Home Office and other parts of the UK for training, meetings and assessing interventions being piloted elsewhere.
Literacy in IT systems, such as word and power-point is required, to complement excellent written and verbal communication skills which will be displayed in working with groups and partners. Previous budget management experience is desirable.
