Technology at Team NP is changing.

As the 6th largest police force in the country, Northumbria is transforming its ICT services so that we can lead the way in data-driven policing. Over the next 12-18 months we’ll be building on our solid Information, Communication and Technology foundations and will expand our services using technology to change the lives of those we serve.

Our vision is to develop impactful technology and build a Digital Policing culture that unleashes potential, is driven by customer needs, is diverse and truly inclusive and promotes employee flexibility, personal growth and professional development throughout the function.

We are looking for dynamic individuals with a strong sense of personal responsibility whose personal values and service delivery are maintained at the highest levels.
