Job Details

What more could you do with data?

Counter Terrorism Policing (CTP) plays a crucial role in keeping our country safe. It’s a vital mission and we have begun an ambitious new strategy to bring about a revolutionary change in how we use data to deliver it. Now that we’re establishing a detailed data strategy, you could enjoy a high profile and wide impact across CTP as you shape and transform how we manage our data.

As Head of Data, you will operate at senior leadership level and have autonomy to set the direction of all work related to the storage and exploitation of data. Our strategy includes a clear approach for acquiring, analysing and sharing data across policing, the intelligence community and, increasingly, the private sector. You will take this forward as you lead our high-performing principal policy data teams.

 

Also acting as Chief Data Officer for CTP, you’ll build and lead a stakeholder group to secure buy-in across the organisation. That will mean designing and articulating a vision and selling it to a broad group ranging from technical communities to law enforcement leaders and very senior operational customers. Additionally, you will design and implement new governance structures for data and achieve all this and more in close collaboration with external partners such as the Home Office. That will draw on your talent for influencing senior leaders across Whitehall and ideally, internationally.

 

Together with strategic vision and a leadership background, you will have proven experience of leading strategy development or delivering data or tech transformation programmes involving complex working relationships. You will have an understanding of law enforcement, national security or intelligence, and advanced knowledge and senior experience ranging from policy and architecture to ethical and security structures.

 

Besides your expert technical knowledge of data sciences, relevant tech or applied data analytics, you’ll have the ability to operate in a complex operational and compliance landscape.

 

In return, you can look forward to benefits including substantial annual leave, Civil Service pension arrangements, interest free season ticket loans, flexible working conditions and more.

 

Vetting

This post requires access to the most sensitive intelligence material on a daily basis. Applicants must hold or be prepared to undergo National Security Vetting (NSV) Security Check (enhanced) (SC(e)) level before taking up the post; and must undergo Developed Vetting (DV) once in post. If you do not obtain DV once in post, you may be subject to a posting or redeployment process.

 

Additionally, this material is of particular sensitivity to the UK and its distribution must be restricted to UK nationals. In approved circumstances dual nationals (of which one element is British) may also be granted access. However, in the event that potential conflicts of interest cannot be managed the post holder will not be able to see the intelligence material and will not be able to perform their duties. For the purpose of safeguarding national security and in line with Cabinet Office Policy, supported by Section 82(2) to (4) of the Police Reform Act (2002), applicants who do not hold or acquire Security Check (enhanced) (SC(e)) or Developed Vetting (DV) clearance and meet the nationality requirements cannot be offered the post.

 

Confidentiality Agreement

Applicants should also be aware of the need to sign a confidentiality agreement on taking up the post.
