Desk Officer – Band P – National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO)
The current terrorism threat is more acute than ever – and it’s vital that security services know how to respond. That’s where the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO) comes in. It includes a specialist unit that develops security products and policy. As a Desk Officer for this team, you’ll play your part in keeping the country safe.
As part of this expert team, you’ll help develop and deliver strategies in protective security advice to sites and venues, people and communities, who face a significant terrorist threat. This requires liaising with government departments, emergency services, business and policing at senior levels. With their help, you’ll develop critical security guidance and toolkits. You’ll also help to build and train a network of CT Security Advisors (CTSAs) and CT Awareness Advisors (CTAAs).
With practical experience in protective security, you’ll have relevant knowledge and strong communication skills. We need someone who can deliver excellent presentations and create well written reports. It’s also important that you’re prepared to travel UK-wide (and overseas if necessary). You’ll be meeting partners, setting policy and training CTSAs. In many ways, you’ll be an ambassador, representing NaCTSO.
Join us, and you’ll have the opportunity to work within the specialist area of national counter terrorism protective security. You’ll also have the opportunity to study for a Certificate in Counter Terrorism Management and to develop personally with a number of courses from the CPNI.
You will receive £30,180 the band minimum. Progress to the band maximum of £35,889 will be via incremental progression.
