Human traffickers, firearms and drugs dealers, cybercriminals and exploiters of children…. at the NCA, we work at the cutting-edge of law enforcement, tackling those posing the most serious threat to UK life.

Now, more than ever, serious and organised criminals are finding new and more ruthless ways to prey on vulnerable people and the wider public. And as the crime landscape continues to evolve, so do we. Our teams work creatively and collaboratively, to find new and unexpected ways to stay ahead. Join them and your work will have a serious impact, as you help us protect millions of people across the UK.

Your role

Our Intelligence Directorate collects, records and enhances intelligence to build a comprehensive picture of what is happening. As an experienced Intelligence Analyst, you’ll carry out complex and wide-ranging analysis that supports our Annual Plan, the National Control Strategy and other key priorities.

You will conduct cross-source analysis and exploitation, making recommendations that help develop intelligence and gain new insights into criminal activity and behaviour, informing NCA understanding of the impact that targeted activity has on the threat presented by serious and organised crime. You’ll access a range of covert and overt capabilities to inform this work, working with government, Law Enforcement, the UK Intelligence Community, and private and third sectors, in support of both tactical and strategic objectives.

You may also be expected to work directly or indirectly in tackling child sexual exploitation and abuse. This may involve exposure to child sexual abuse images and material, so please consider the sensitive nature of our work before deciding to apply.

Your background

As an experienced analyst, you should have a track record of carrying out intelligence analysis within law enforcement, defence or national security, along with the ability to communicate the results to influence decision making.

With formal intelligence analysis training, such as NIAT, GIAT or DIAM, you should also hold Intelligence Professionalisation Programme (IPP) accreditation or be able to provide evidence of the equivalent experience you’ve gained within the last 4 years. This must include a good knowledge of data management and relevant legislation and policy within law enforcement, defence or national security.


We take your career and development seriously and want to help you build a truly successful career with us and the wider Civil Service. So, we’ll make sure you receive the right training, guidance and coaching as well as regular performance and development reviews. What’s more, as a Civil Service employee you’re also entitled to a large range of benefits, including generous annual leave, flexible working, a contributory pension, staff bonuses and recognition, volunteering days, childcare vouchers and other salary sacrifice options, and an employee discount scheme.
The breadth of our capabilities means there’s no such thing as a typical NCA officer. We recruit people from virtually every walk of life, from police to project management, crime analysis and commercial procurement. Join us and we’ll give you the powers, time and resources to see cases through, as well as high-profile experience to add to your record. On top of this, you’ll get to work at the heart of law enforcement response and deal with the biggest threats to national security.

Closing date for applications: June 22nd.
