The role:

The Tackling Organised Exploitation Programme (TOEX) has

been commissioned to contribute to a whole systems approach to improve the

response to the ‘exploitation of the vulnerable’ within the current National

Strategic Assessment of Serious and Organised Crime, developing a model that

supports an enhanced intelligence picture to inform activity; operational

tasking and coordination; and capability development.

This role will be based within the Regional Organised Crime Units (ROCUs). 

These units form a critical part of the national policing network,

provide a range of specialist policing capabilities to forces which help them

to tackle serious and organised crime effectively. These capabilities include

undercover policing, specialist surveillance, and cyber-crime investigation.

ROCUs investigate and disrupt organised crime groups

operating across police force boundaries, additionally they act as an important

point of connection between police forces and the National Crime Agency (NCA).

What will I be doing?

The TOEX researcher will undertake qualitative and

quantitative research to support intelligence and analytical products. During

the pilot year, this will be a singular resource within the ROCU which will be tasked

remotely by the central TOEX team. This is an interesting opening for

candidates who consider themselves as self-starters with an enthusiasm for

research, which they would like to develop further into the disciplines of

intelligence or data analysis.

Grant funded to 31 March 2022, the TOEX vacancies represent

a unique opportunity to join a cutting-edge programme which will deliver a

first of its kind intelligence and performance framework. Each successful

candidate will have a personal development plan which will build on their current

knowledge and skills – and provide a clear learning pathway to realise their

full potential.

Coming on-board during our pilot year means that you will be

part of a team supporting brand new ways of working – be integral to ground

breaking collaborations – and contribute to the disruption of organised

networks built upon exploitation.
