Licensing and Accreditation Lead - CT Policing National Counter Terrorism Security Office

Deliver training that transforms policing


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.


As Training Manager, you’ll help to develop and deliver our training, licencing and accreditation across the various stands of this essential project. Based in London, with the flexibility to work remotely, you’ll oversee the strategic direction for the L&A Team within NaCTSO and PAL’s – making sure that all our internal training and partner agency training is the very best it can be.


To be successful, you’ll need extensive knowledge of the Counter Terrorist network and its regional variations. What’s more, you should have experience in the line-management of Protect and Prepare resources and of chairing regional and national leaders meetings. The ability to write and develop CT modules for training, deliver presentation at senior levels and affect change will all be essential too.

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.
