Financial Investigator – Asset Denial
Financial Investigator – Asset Denial
Do you want to join a world class Investigation capability and help protect the public against serious and organised crime?
Investigations is the core crime fighting capability of the NCA. We take an intelligence-led approach and concentrate on tackling the criminals and risks to the public which are beyond the capability or capacity of other law enforcement bodies.
The Investigations Directorate provides a flexible, shared operational capability, designed to maximise the impact of the UK's collective resources against serious and organised crime, and in specialist support of major crime. Our teams respond to a broad range of threats, many of which also remain a responsibility for police forces and other agencies as well as private industry.
Conducting financial investigations in support of the NCA‘s objective of eroding the profit motive with serious and organised crime, you will undermine a key incentive for the highest risk and most serious and organised criminals.
Through building effective external partnerships and collaborating with other NCA units, wider UK law enforcement, international counterparts and Government departments, you will contribute to the acquisition and development of tactical and strategic intelligence focused on serious and organised crime affecting the UK, particularly money laundering and economic crime investigations.
Asset Denial comprises the following teams which utilise an array of powers under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (POCA) and the Criminal Finances Act 2017 (CFA) to target the highest risk and most serious and organised criminals:
Asset Confiscation Enforcement (ACE) - Ensures that criminal confiscation orders are enforced and paid and also revisits orders if further additional assets come to light.
Civil Recovery and Tax (CRT) – Uses POCA civil recovery and tax powers to deprive criminals of property obtained through criminality.
Criminal Asset Denial team (CADT) - service the restraint and confiscation requirements of the Complex Financial Crime Teams within the NCA. They also extensively use CFA asset denial powers.
