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 Engagement Officer, you’ll be responsible for supporting, educating, and leading communication to both reporters, such as banks and other professionals, and law enforcement agencies. You’ll assist with events and presentations, both in person and virtually, working with colleagues across all levels of the NCA to support law enforcement and improve the quality of Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs). Working with sensitivity, you’ll maintain confidentiality as you manage the security and accuracy of intelligence, acting as a point of contact for all SAR related questions and issues. You’ll help instil a culture of learning and development, fostering a collaborative work environment and maintaining effective working relationships with colleagues and external regulatory bodies.

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 able to work well in a team environment. Some experience of developing and maintaining effective relationships with stakeholders, and of managing competing and conflicting demands, is desirable. Good verbal and written communication, alongside a basic understanding of the illicit financial landscape, are also key skills you’ll need to bring to the role. Most importantly you’ll be a team player, and a person passionate about improving the lives of the most vulnerable in our society.
