Information Capability and Engagement Product Development & Training Officer - CT Policing National

Help to transform the way we work.


These uniquely challenging times, call for new and innovative approaches to continue keeping the public and the country safe. As we move away from the old Crowded Places Model, to a new broader approach of Protecting Publicly Accessible Locations (PALs), the scope of our requirements has grown and transformed. We need to design and deliver a new wider approach to security, covering key strands across the Government and the Public Sector – while supporting the emerging Protect Duty legislation that is being considered.


Joining our specialist team, you’ll be at the heart of developing, producing and evaluating protective security awareness products. This is an essential and significant project: one that will see you liaising with CT Policing, private business and Government. You’ll take a key leadership role within the the team too, as you collate ideas, share advice and train our network of Counter Terrorism Security Advisors and Counter Terrorism Awareness Advisors.


Ideally with a Protective Security background and experience creating training packages, you’ll be an expert at delivering training and articulating ideas clearly. Excellent organisational skills, the ability to work efficiently to meet deadlines and both graphic design and web design skills will all be essentials. You must also be happy to sign a binding confidentially agreement and to achieve and maintain CV vetting and relevant STRAP requirements.


In return, we can offer a key role that comes with wide-ranging rewards and benefits. Help us take UK policing digital. Join us at the Met.
