Build the evidence that brings the most dangerous criminals to justice.

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. Senior Intelligence Officer is a wide-ranging and dynamic role that plays a vital part in achieving our tactical and strategic objectives.

Taking the lead on the cross-source data exploitation, analysis, delivery and dissemination of intelligence products to drive activity to combat serious and organised crime, you’ll manage a range of projects, operations and intelligence development plans.

You’ll also interact with other NCA departments and teams, and external partners including government, Law Enforcement, UK Intelligence Community, public, private and third sector organisations. On top of this, you’ll support our analytic teams with the tasking of intelligence assets and collection of information, using the full range of covert and overt resources at the NCA’s disposal.

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

With a background in law enforcement, defence or national security, you’ll bring experience of supervising the researching, gathering, evaluating and structuring of intelligence using a range of techniques, tools and resources.

You should 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 substantial knowledge of relevant legislation and policy, and a good understanding of data management within law enforcement, defence or national security.

Ideally, you’ll also hold IPP Supervisor accreditation.


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.

The closing date for applications is June 22nd.
