Counter Terrorism Policing (CTP) has a critical job in protecting the UK, and our HR unit plays an essential role in looking after CTP staff. That’s why we’re looking for an enthusiastic administrator to support the department during a busy time, and to help us to recruit new team members.
You’ll work with internal and external partners, agencies and forces nationwide, to respond to information requests, handle sensitive data, create timely and accurate communications, organise meetings and process essential paperwork.
You’ll also support our recruitment efforts through liaising with campaign managers and candidates, preparing recruitment papers and organising interviews. You will be essential to the smooth running of the department, receiving visitors and preparing information for monthly meetings, to ensure staff are up to date with everything they need to know.
This is a people-focused role, so excellent communication skills are essential, alongside initiative and a willingness to support others. To thrive as a HR Administrator within CTP, you’ll need strong computer skills, including use of Microsoft software, such as MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
If you’re highly motivated, proactive and have a commitment to meeting deadlines and delivering quality work, your next role could be in HR for counter terrorism. HR experience isn’t necessary, though it is desirable.
Now more than ever is the time to join the Met Police. We want our team to be representative of our country and are looking to recruit people who understand and reflect the diverse communities we engage with every day.
Besides the rewarding nature of the job, a competitive salary and a Civil Service pension, you'll also benefit from excellent career and professional development. If you’re looking to progress, this is an outstanding opportunity.
