Support the projects that are helping to combat terrorism

The current terrorism threat is constantly evolving. With public safety at stake, it’s vital that we combat these rapidly-changing risks. To this end, the National Counter Terrorism Policing Headquarters (NCTPHQ) has launched a number of complex change projects and programmes – and you can help them succeed. Join us as a Benefits Management Officer and play your part in keeping the country safe.

You’ll be part of the NCTPHQ’s Change Pillar, working within the Portfolio Management Office. Here, you’ll support complex and interlinked projects and programmes. These initiatives will help us anticipate new and emerging threats. With risks changing quickly, our portfolio is expanding.

Day-to-day, you’ll implement our benefits management framework. By applying set standards and processes, you’ll ensure we spot and achieve financial and non-financial benefits. If you enjoy teamwork, it’s a great opportunity: you’ll be working with the NCTPHQ’s Performance Team and Senior Business Change & Benefits Manager, as well as Reporting, Planning and Risks & Issues Officers. You’ll also get to operate at project, programme and portfolio level, taking a flexible approach in times of high demand.

To deliver benefits from our portfolio, you need sound experience. You’ll need to know how to extract relevant information from business cases, presentations and other documents. Perhaps you’ve done this in a performance or finance context – ideally for a Policing, Government or Security agency. You certainly understand the principles of benefits management and the various tools and techniques. A Benefits Management qualification would be an advantage, but isn’t essential. However, you do need the communication skills to facilitate groups and obtain people’s agreement. Your skillset should also include strong Excel and PowerPoint skills.

As part of NCTPHQ, you’ll work with colleagues from government, industry and the police. You’ll learn new skills and enjoy the opportunity to build an exciting career. Best of all, you’ll shape the way our CT network operates. It’s a unique opportunity to have an impact on national security.
