Ever wondered what it would be like to work for one of the biggest Police Forces in the UK? Exciting, challenging, thought-provoking and rewarding are just some of the ways we would describe it. And that’s not just the Police Officers. Here at Northumbria Police, we’ve got almost 2000 police staff working behind the scenes to make our community a safe place to live, work and visit. Fancy joining us on a journey to prevent crime and protect our communities? That journey starts here…


Our Forensic Services team offer advice and guidance on all forensics issues, supporting investigations and ensuring analysis is up to date and robust. The intelligence provided significantly drives our vision to deliver an outstanding police service. Within the team, we have an opportunity to join us as a Support Services Administrator. 

This is an exciting opportunity that involves undertaking a range of clerical, administration and physical duties that assist the daily running of the Crime Scene Investigation Unit and Forensic Collision Investigation Unit. You’ll feel rewarded knowing that your organisation skills are being put to good use by an organisation that has a positive impact on the community.

·         Ensuring items kept in storage are appropriately and securely stored

·         Liaising with other colleagues and external suppliers via email and telephone to ensure deliveries are managed and orders processed


What skills will I need?


·         Excellent organisational skills and the ability to manage a busy workload

·         The ability to problem-solve and use your initiative when the need arises

·         You’ll need to be self-motivated and able to work independently

·         Good communication skills both written and verbal

·         The confidence to use ICT equipment and software

You need a current, UK full driving licence as this role involves travel throughout the force area. You’ll also be using force vehicles to travel between departments.


In return for your dedication and experience, we offer 24 days’ leave, excluding bank holidays, increasing to 29 days for 5 years+ service.  We support our people inside and out of work – offering a very competitive pension scheme, and discounts on shopping and eating out thanks to the Blue Light Card.
