Senior Operations Officer UK Financial Intelligence Unit

NCA Grade 4

£36,742/ £40,166

About us

At the National Crime Agency (NCA), our mission is to lead the UK’s fight to cut serious and organised crime. The UK Financial Intelligence unit (UKFIU) sits at the heart of that mission, working nationally and globally to tackle illicit finance, fight money laundering, and prevent terrorist financing. Our work protects vulnerable individuals, spanning all types of threat and touching all aspects of UK life. Our teams are dedicated to the work they do and motivated to improve the lives of the people most affected by crime. And we are dedicated to them. With a culture rooted in support, empowerment, and development, we have a glowing track record for growing careers.

About the role

As an Operations Officer, you’ll be responsible for receiving, analysing, disseminating, and processing Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) intelligence. You’ll assess SARs linked to priority threat areas at pace, ensuring that they comply with all relevant legislation. Using your communication skills, you’ll deal with enquires from colleagues across all levels of the NCA, co-ordinating not only with other areas of law enforcement, but also with external bodies and individuals. You’ll supervise the initial identification and development of intelligence opportunities to address priority threat areas, making quick operational decisions within the strict time limits laid out in law. Most importantly, you’ll foster collaborative working relationships with your team and help to instil a culture of learning and development across the NCA.

About you

There is no such thing as a typical UKFIU Officer – we are actively looking to recruit people from all walks of life. A background in law enforcement isn’t necessary, but you’ll need to demonstrate an ability to deliver at pace and be an effective decision maker. You’ll have previous experience of engaging with UK law enforcement, and of operational decision making, including managing risks to the integrity of sensitive data. A good understanding of the illicit finance landscape, including of relevant legislation, alongside knowledge of the use of financial intelligence by law enforcement/ government are also key skills you’ll need to bring to this role. Previous experience of prioritising and managing conflicting demands in a fast-paced environment with responsibility for team outcomes is also desirable. Most importantly you’ll be a team player, and a person passionate about improving the lives of the most vulnerable in our society.

Closing date: 28 March 2022.
